You looked like the person I shared a camp fire with and he was from your area.
There has been a mysterious Mr. E posting, where on earth has this gentleman been? I've been searching for him on his purple X rocks, nothing. He seems to have slipped out of the GPS tracking device and the lo-jack installed on his rig is also malfunctioning. It is good to see him chewing on that flyrod in his avatar again!
Fished yesterday from 730-1130. Hooked two fish in the first half hour. Just plain lost the first one, the second one straightened out my sz. 6 hook. Fish were moving around till around 10am, then it just dyed..
I was at a spot this weekend where a guy with a B-I-G clouser minnow - size 1 or 2 hook using some kind of bright chartreuse yarn or 'bou was killing them.
I can't be sure of the size, but it had be pretty big - way bigger than other clousers you would normally tie for SRC's.
I didn't get the greatest look at his fly but I was standing close enough to get an eye on the fly in the mouth of the chum as he was trying to un-hook them. I didn't ask him about the material he used, but that's what it looked like to me. (Wished I had now).
He was taking them at a creek mouth that fed right into the salt and was in no more than 2 feet of water.
He was out fishing the gear guys easily 2-to-1.
Dumb question, but has anyone tried a pattern using the "corkie" yarn clouser minnow imitation for these chums?

Betcha' he was using that "ultra bite" sauce too on those "corke yarn clousers" ... hmm, that sounds like a good idea?..
I didn't see him adding stuff to his clouser, but I could be wrong.
Never heard of "ultra bite sauce". Sounds more like something we would use as alternative to BBQ sauce....(now with low MSG!) :rofl:
If he was using "Ultra Bite" you and everyone there would have smelled it. That has to be the foulest smelling stuff out there. A friend spilled some on his Simms waders 3 years ago and we still make him put them in taped shut garbage bags before we let him put them in our vehicles.
Quick stop at CC today, tide was pretty low and moving in slightly during my brief stop. Not many anglers of any ilk, not many fish seen, but some. Water was pretty clear and no significant change in the structure that I could see. No fish for me, but I decided early that I was too busy to linger and ended up wanting food more than fishing. Sorry to be such a puss, but I was hungry.
Don't feel bad dude... creek mouth... 2 ft of water... those fish were FLOSSED.
Went yesterday 11-15-08. There were about 15 gear guys and just me and the two I brought FF. We caught a few. The fish where pretty fleshy looking and there where not that many of them. Got there late and was fishing the outgoing tide. Horrible I know but was the only time I had. The gear guys weren't catching anything and decided ro throw in the same spot as us and cross the river to throw in there too. Had lead and cork thrown over and tangled my fly line twice in fifteen minutes. Left in frustration. Going to a few other non-popular spots next time
Fished today on my lunch break at work...nothing, looked pretty dead out there. Just some old ones in the hole. Prolly just wait till this next rain and or incoming tide.
Thanks for the update. Saves me a trip over there tomorrow on my lunch break. Sometimes food is more important than fishing (sorry, but to be honest it takes a lot of calories to keep my figure and I skip lunch way too much).
My guess from what the state has said about much lower returns than anticipated along with the amount of dead and zombie fish I saw on Sun. is that its over for this year, sure I did see a few brighter fish but for the most part it seems over unless you just want a part in "night of the swimming dead"
I drove down the Canal on Saturday, coming home from B.I. via the longer route. (Over the Hood Canal Bridge and then south. I can't stand driving on hwy 3. The Canal is always a better drive).
It was sunny and calm. Dead. Saw one crumbling molder still barely alive, finning at my favorite creek mouth. It was mid-afternoon, and the tide wasn't the best. However, the run does seem to be over. Every place looked dead. There was a small crowd at Hoodsport, but I never stop there. Too sunny and calm!
The good news is that you can forget about the dogs and concentrate on cutts, or go hit the rivers for steel. I have heard some reports of good fishing on the OP this last week.
Yeah, thats what I'm saying. But I've got to hook at least ONE doggie this year, maybe Muckie Minter.
