    I'm heading out there for some salt fishing today. Last report I saw was from Matt Burke, but nothing since. Anyone have any news since then, or any suggestions on what food is around right now? I'll be bringing sand lance immitations as well as euphasids, candlefish, and some sculpin-type flies.

    Thanks,
    Marc

    Thanks, D3. I did wet a line, but the beach I was at (private) wasn't super conducive to fishing. Going toward low, lots of kelp and grass beds to get a fly caught in. The waves also were stirring up a lot of sand.

    That is a condition you will encounter on most beaches going toward a low tide, especially at or just before true low.
