    I used to live in Ballard and fished GG a lot- there are SRC, salmon, flounder all to be had there.

    You'll want to tie up some Clousers!!

    Sinking line will help get to flounder level- intermediate for upper water column fish

    From what I've read is small (like 2 1/2" and under) Clousers are good for flounder.

    Just be careful not to fish the south side of the point (where the good fishing would be) as shillshole bay is closed until late august

    North side of Meadow Point at GG the beach slopes out gently for nearly 100 yards. Lots of flounder to be had anywhere between the rip rap and the point. They'll hit clousers or sculpin patterns (and pink buzz bombs...).

    As mentioned, inside of meadow point to west point line opens Sept. 1. Drop off is sharper on SW side, fishy-er and I've found small SRC around the old pilings. Hoping for my first pre-work coho off that beach this year.

    If you have boat or kayak access, just beyond and south of the green nav buoy off Meadow Point can be pretty good for coho and blackmouth. Makes fishing GG on a busy afternoon or evening a possibility too.

    Well, I'm in Cali and so have not done my usual amount of recon. :(

    There's a LOT of great water between Oso and Cicero thst NOONE fishes. Log cabin, elbow, hell hole, etc etc if you're willing to wet wade/swim/whatever it takes...... You'll get on a shitload of PRIME water. Maybe you will run into Mike Kinney fishing his run, although I bet it's silted up badly.

    Clouser patterns also can catch Cabazon's. Like this one caught at Carkeek yesterday morning.
