    Hit the canal today with board member Eric (Troutrageous).
    The forecast was for rain and 15+ mph winds. They got one part right but the flags stayed limp all day.
    The water had a lot of color from last weeks rain and wind. It seemed to clear a bit as the day went on.
    The best action was the hour before and after the high. It was pretty dead after that.
    Collectively we went 3 for 11. Just couldn't keep them on the hook today.
    Regardless it was a good all be it wet day on the water.
    Here are a few pics from today.

    Thanks Stonefish. One of these days I'll learn to get up and get out there earlier.

    Nice work Brian! You guys found a better spot on the Canal than I did yesterday (although my weather was a bit more clement!).

    I was 0 for 0 but did see resident Coho. As usual, 20 yards beyond the cast. Left around noon just as the rains picked up. Lots of small new slides and trees down. I also saw a pretty suspicious Kenmore Air Floatplane fly over twice, heading to and from either HC or South Sound. Which is why I am saying very publicly I went 0 for 0.

    Worked the Jedi mind trick as what I suspect was Leland's plane flew overhead:

    This is not the beach you are looking for...

    But was unable to discern what beach(es) they were looking for.

    Yes, just a small pod, moving north with the tide

    Thanks Boot
    Hopefully that are growing fast for our summer angling and dining enjoyment.
