    I stopped by Dash Point State park yesterday. Nothing but kids having fun in the water. Any news on the Skykomish or Skagit yet of pinks?

    Caught a 4lb Pink on my third cast tonight at PNP. That was it. Saw one other pink caught as well as a 7lb wild Nookie that the guy bonked. :(

    All quiet at DPSP this evening from 5:00-8:00. No fish showing on the surface, didn't see anyone with fish on out in the boats, nothing for me...

    8/4 Dash Point Report

    Fished 5:00 to 8:00 AM Low, incoming tide.

    Fished the frist 90 min way down beach so I can't report on numbers from the gear crowd. Fished the last 90 min near the dock and saw 4 taken on gear and one on a fly (by me !). In general it seemed slower than mon/tues (I didn't fish wed).

    Dock was full of people, about 15-20 gear guys on the beach.

    Nice job on the pink today Ron!:D Wasn't much going on after you left, although 2 gear guys hooked into a double near where you were at after you left. That was about all the action after you left up to about 9 AM.

    PS- I counted 42 people on the lengthwise segment of the pier. It is going to be a crowded year. There was the usual cluster at the end point too and a fair amount off the face pointed toward the deeper water. Hope I can figure this fly thing out so the hardware can stay in the trunk:)

    Later this morning on the outgoing tide the water came alive. The fish were close in to the dock so bamnk anglers didn't do so well but I would guess I saw more than a hundred fish caught on the dock by 1 P.M. when I left. I lost two to LDR this morning. Can't figure what's happening yet but plan to work it out.

    Ft. Flagler this AM from 6am to 9am. High tide was 8:30. The 1st 30 minutes was active with bait fish and big swirls at the surface. No takes...other than 4 or 5 shakers. Nobody else there. After 6:30 am all water within casting distance was stagnant and inactive. smaller fish (8-10 in) were jumping 50+ yds off shore. Bait guys and buzz bombers showed up at 7:30. Nobody hooked up between 7:30 and the time I left around 9am.

    You must of purchased the
    Discover Tax Pass. I'm sure
    the park was empty like most
    of the State Parks. You can't even
    drive through without it. F it.
    Cheaper to get a camp-site than
    pay for the pass.
