Very short casts on the Wallace.
I ended up on the Squamish in BC for the Chums last week and got my fair share of them on the swing. Those Chums were willing to bite a fly on the swing and they fought hard! I think they had been under-rated for what they are worth as a sport fish...
I must heartily disagree. I think chum like flies presented in nearly any fashion better than most gear. However if you are having issues a twitch as it swings can change the game.
I see you got some action. Excellent!
Yeah, I don't know anyone who spey fishes for chum. I only fish them in the salt, where I'll use a switch for over hand casting. Even then, stripping is awkward. There is a late run in the Nisqually that starts in Late November through xmas.
And 20 pounders are not the norm, even for bucks.
The Satsop gets some bruisers and has some nice swing water that can be accessed by foot.
I landed some monsters at the Satsop last week
Well - the Stilly run has sure taken a hit within the time frame suggested. I always remembered it to be way better than it has been.
"Twitching 3/4 of the way thru the swing seemed to do the trick today.
That's a beautiful fish good job
Well I'm pissed. I took half the day off and tried to catch some chum with the promtruder and struck out. All I could catch was a couple sea lice ridden wild coho. To make matters worse, they were so robust and rad looking i couldn't bring myself to kill them even though legal. Most coho that got the moxy to take a six inch fly get a pass from me. Hopefully they will make more fish with moxy. The chum run in the chehalis basin has kinda sucked this year at least for me. Maybe they all got by in the last month long high water event. Oh well I'll try again today on the way to a meeting.
