    Seriously, no fish but it was a pretty darned nice day compared to what we've experienced here on the KP the last few. A little windier than I anticipated but nice conditions overall. Lonely fishin' until a bit later in the day when a few families showed up in order to prowl the beach and enjoy the lack of rain. Did see a number of small schools of chum fry swimming by which made me hopeful but no signs of any predation on the little critters!

    I too was out on the Canal. Chum fry and birds eating them. It no signs of fish. :/
    Also fished Sinclair inlet and still zero and no signs of fry either.

    Debated the merits and probabilities of South Sound vs Hood Canal on the the Edmonds-Kingston Ferry yesterday morning...nothing in the two South Sound spots I hit up. That being said, it was a beautiful day!

    I fished Case Inlet on Tues (3/4) and nada, not even a bump. No chum fry yet.

    Same report here. My family has a place on the south end of the Canal near a little creek that get's a small chum return. Spotted a lot of fry milling around our beach last week and weekend but didn't touch a single Cutty in several day's fishing. The food's there, just not the feeders.

    Maybe their all full? You know they can't hall out of the water and hang on the beach when they eat too much, like Seals and Sea lions. This is a joke by the way.

    I fished from slack tide yesterday until about 2 hours into the incoming tide (North Canal). The birds were feeding in my usual hot spot, still nothing hooked yet this year. Thought I heard one splash behind me but it could have been a bird. We need the tides to get stronger....

    One thing I've noticed this year is there has been a very good early morning bite with lots of fish showing. This is at least the case on the beach that has produced multiple fish for me the past five trips and seems to happen regards of the tidal phase.
    Then the action goes into a lull for a couple of hours without any fish showing. After an hour or two things pick up again. I've just been waiting them out watching the water until they show up again rather then relocating to a different beach.
    There was a big moon this past Saturday it didn't seem to effect the bite. Tidal movement later in the day certainly has.
    Hope this helps.

    As soon as I get unpacked in my new location - I'm going to hit the early AM.

    Another short report from 3/17:
    2 fly flailers + 3 MA 12 beaches = 1 LDR
    Of course, the result was much better than the sum of it's parts! Nice day weatherwise, great scenery and a chance to explore the great fjord a little more!

    You have company... goose egg for me too this past Saturday. I'm hoping to see more fish each time out, but that's not been the case.

    Look at the bright side, at least you guys are hitting the water. We have had a lot of big surf down here. It was 18 foot yesterday morning today it was only 14 foot but the wind was also up. You don't want to be standing in the shore pound and get hit by even a 3 foot wave. I'm looking forward to next month breaking out my 6wt, uncover my boat and hitting some spots.
