Sea-runs and resident cohos

#1
Hey all, I'm coming home from Montana for Christmas break and I am wondering how the cutthroat and coho fishing has been doing. Last year around this time I remember the south sound was producing some good fish, is this still the same case? Also are the generic patterns working, such as clousers and poppers? Any color suggestions? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

I'll be at some beach tossing the clousers I just tied up for the first time :)

If any of you guys want to join me, perhaps we can pick a place for everyone to meet at?

Resident coho have been a bit slow lately. The sea-run cutthroat are still around in pretty good numbers though. They seem to be a little closer to the estuaries right now though... Clousers will work.

If you're around the south sound, I could possibly head up there...I'm a little torn, been a while since I've been out to the big D, but then it sounds awfully tempting to head up to the the Olympia area to chase SRCs and/or rezzies...

I'd be happy to join you, Nom but I don't know many places to go - been to Golden Garden once and wasn't impressed. Been to Docs and Purdy a lot last year, not so much this year but did have one spectacular day at Purdy last year. Docs is closer and access is easier for an old crippled bastard like me but haven't had much luck catching fish there.

I did another place over by Purdy once last year but tides were all wrong....and then the damn break-ins started in that area so never went back.:beathead:

Feel free to PM me if you like.

Regards,

I think I may be heading over to Kopachuck beach saturday morning.

I'm still sorting out the details with my girlfriend but low tide is right around 12:30. I've heard people fish 2 hours before and after high tide so I should be out there by 10 AM and we'll see how the fishing is. If you guys wanna join me, shoot me a PM with your number and maybe we can set a small little meet up.

Also, hopefully not but my lymph node feels all tender...which usually means i might be getting sick...i hope not.

If you're going to Docs bring your euphasids, they were the ticket at this time last year. Chris at GH Fly Shop has tied up some great patterns.

haven't been out there before. how does the doc's area beach fish? 2 hours before and after low tide good times to fish? I know people have different takes on tides and I'm new at this SRC chasing thing!

Docs to me has been a rezzie beach with the occassional SRC thrown in, but it does fish much better with moving water, Hendersonbay provided a very good guage to the Narrows! If you are after SRC's I would look more towards the estuaries.

I was thinking about hitting either Mukilteo or Picnic Point up north with some pink and chartreuse clousers on Sunday. I haven't looked at the tide charts yet so the time is still up in the air.

Anyone interested?

Anyone know how the northern beaches are fishing for rezzies this time of year?
