Anyone going after Lk Washington sockeye with a fly rod this weekend???
I would love to go for Sockeye this weekend; however, I am new to the area and do not know a thing about it. Are there areas to go from the shore? I have caught Sockeye's on the Kenai, but never anywhere else. Is it a productive fishery?
I have been watching this post because I had planned to fish it this weekend but the motor on my boat would not start on Sunday. I have no idea why so I am taking it in next week which is the soonest the shop could get it in. I have given some thought to taking the kayak out with my fly rod and I would love to hear if anyone has tried for the sockeye in lake Washington on a fly rod. What type of fly, are they using a full sink line and maybe an area that the bigger boats can not get into to try. Bouncing around the bridges in a kayak or float tube would get old real quick with all the boat traffic and many do not watching for a small boat like mine. so how about it has anyone out there tried for the lake Washington Sockeye using a fly rod what worked what did not? UNNO
I thought Lake Washington was closed to sockeye this year??
WDFW just announced it's open Friday thru Sunday due to late surge in counts (above 320k at last count I saw).
I'm all over it...Takin' the day off work and hittin' it at 5 AM - see y'all out there!
Sounds like fun to me. How and where do you flyfish for sockeye in Lake Washington?
I'm heading out to brave the waves in my pontoon boat on sunday.
I'm giving the flyrod a rest for the weekend and taking my 8'6" ugly stick, dodger, 6 oz weight and red hook combo to "blend in" with the locals!
It's tough to get a fly down 60-90 feet deep so when in Rome...do as the Romans...i guess UNNO
momma wants a little salmon and told me she never sees me bring home fish ( C&R ) so I better keep her happy.
Lake Wahington is a big lake but, not big enough for a weekend opener in the middle of one of the west coast largest cities. Thanks but,no thanks.
Silvers will be coming soon. They are a better fish in my humble opinion.
