    "Tide schedule looks kind of pathetic though, not sure how it's gonna work out... "

    Connor, what's up with the tides? Highs too low and Lows too high? Obviously I haven't checked the tables yet....

    I was there once last year and the tide was out (low) and there was nothing but mud flats as far as I could see....didn't fish! Have heard that can be a good spot at times tho.

    Tides are just off, not a lot of movement, they drop at 8:00am and then back up at noonish, the night swings are great just not so fantastic during day light. The 24th looks to be the best day left this month[IMG].

    When I checked the tables I immediately saw what you mean...not much flow; basically, lows are too high during daylight. :beathead: Think I'll try another time. Maybe hit the river instead.

    no fish to hand. me and Mitransplant hit up a couple spots but the tides were off today. I stopped by Purdy for a short bit on the way down but no fish there for me either.

    I gotta stop wasting my time if the tides aren't in my favor, but being out was enough for me. better than sitting at home

    Started fishing by my lonesome about 8:30 or 9:00. I was thinking the larger drop in the morning would fish best.

    As it turned out, things were dead until the tide started flooding in. Around 2:00 or so a few fish started showing themselves here and there, and I was able to connect with 2 of them.

    The bigger of the two took a glo fly I purchased from Gig Harbor Fly Shop as it was getting dark. Fish was a feeder. Saw him sip a few amphipods or euphasids off the surface and then missed him twice with a sculpin pattern before finally hooking up.

    Overall kind of a slow day.
