Ever fish the outgoing tide for Searuns at night?

#1
Took my daughter out for some FF casting lessons. Then I felt I had to hit the water for some fish. Hooked up and landed one at dusk, but nothing after it got dark. The tide was still moving out and a saw a few jumps here and there. So, do any of you regularly fish the salt for cuts at night and if so do you find that some flies/colors work better than others? Was thinking it would be fun to fish some glow in the dark flies.

If I had to choose a favorite time of day, sunset would be it. One of my favorite situations is to have a high tide topping out at sunset; The low light of alpen glow on the distant peaks, that roseate blush to the clouds, the first stars showing, swinging a fly on the fresh tides, intoxicating. http://olympicpeninsulaflyfishing.blogspot.com
Sheesh, Bob. Sounds like another "Paris of the West" thread!

Forks - the "Paris of the West".
It has kind of a nice ring to it... step aside Duvall!

Greg, I do not fish tidewater anywhere near Forks.
I didn't mean to offend, Bob - I know you fish the salt well east of there for the most part.

My post was simply a poor attempt at humor in reference to the season's longest running thread touting Duvall as the "Paris of the west".
As seen here; http://www.washingtonflyfishing.com/forum/index.php?threads/just-got-back-from-duvall.93156/
I believe Forks could potentially trump that claim, that's all.

In agreement with your post...evening searching/casting on the calm surface of a sultry and slow moving Puget Sound current for cutthroats can be intoxicating, especially at dusk!
But I will admit I've never tried it in the complete darkness of night in over 40 years of fishing the Sound for them.

Back in the day, I tried fishing at night for SRC's a few times. As late as midnight. I always felt optimistic about trying it, but never once had any success. Not even a bite.

went out for south sound coho at night a few days ago, nothing but cutties, a couple ended up being fairly nice sized. glow in the dark comets close to shore, in the slower water, not just the deeper rips.
