    Anyone mind sharing where to fish on Orcas for Cohos in first week of August? Heading there for family gathering and thinking of slipping out to throw some flies and buzz bombs for non fly fisher in the family. Any help would be appreciated very much...

    Maybe find Sockeye at that time? I don't expect the resident coho get that far North.

    There could be some silvers around that time of year, whether you can catch them from the beach or not I don't know. We used to catch them around Patos and East Point on Saturna so that is relatively close. Try around West beach or Point Doughty.
