    Those are Juvenile chinook...check the spotting pattern, the anal fin, the gumline, the sheen on the caudal...

    Coho have a bluer back, "peppery" spots (and less of them), white gumline, no spots on lower caudal lobe and less caudal sheen.

    Les is spot on. No humpies til 07/07

    Just a thought here, but the fish in the first pic looks like a silver and the second one looks like a chinook. Does anyone else think that, or am I out in left field?

    First time salt success as well out at Brown's Point today. Caught this 12" king and had another hit on a #4 Chartruese Clouser.

    I hit Lincoln Park yesterday and had a great afternoon. Was there for only 2 hours and hooked around 12 fish, landed 10....all resi Coho and Kings (10-18 in). What great fun on a 5 weight! They hit any baitfish pattern I threw out there.

    Great Day!

    Hi everybody. I’m thinking about fishing browns point or Lincoln park tomorrow. I know we’ve been having some high tides lately, so I was wondering if both places are fishable at the high.

    Thanks for your help

    Awesome, everyone's nailin 'em!

    Peter, I don't know Brown's but Lincoln can be tougher at high tide just because of the fact that you're liable to hook a walker on the path! Low is much easier. Be sure to fish a moving tide.

    Check here for tide times if you haven't already...

    Be sure to let us know how you did!

    BTW - snowboarding at Snoqualmie was great today! Sunny and beautiful!

    Happy new year!!!

    Peter,
    I fished brown at high tide today. I lost probaly 3 flies to sloppy backcasts, but if you can find a fairly high spot (large boulders all over the point) you can get your line above the rocks behind you. The best fishing for me was really right before the high tide. I hope this all helps you make your decision. Good Luck.

    Well, since we're talking about how good the beach fishing's been lately...

    Caught this bad boy a couple of days ago in the salt.

    Big surprise on a 6 weight. :)

    Sorry about the image size. How do I do the thumbnail thing?

    guys- the first two fish are both chinook without a question...notice the spots on the lower lobe of the caudal fin...coho dont have spots there. Also...IMPORTANT- salmon and cutts are much more vulnerable to injury due to handling while in the salt (ever notice the scales coming off?) for this reason, they should be handled with care....please leave wild threatened chinook in the water

    Intersting. I would have thought they were more hardy in the salt as they would not be in full-spawn mode yet. There's always something to learn. For this reason I prefer to LDR all fish under 5 lbs... :D

    First fish resident coho, second fish little blackmouth (also, notice the difference in smell between the two. The blackmouth has its own distinct odor).
