    I was hoping you'd add your pictures Josh.

    That's probably a good bet most of the time.

    Cutthroat fishing in the fall and during the chum fry migration in the spring has got to be one of the best and healthiest fisheries we've got in Washington. Nice fish guys, I've got next week off to chase cutthroat and maybe find an early chum, can't wait.

    As of this AM, still seeing lots of BIG ho's out there as well. They were jumping about 200 yards out all morning.

    LOTS of big jumping Coho off the West side of Whidbey today but I couldn't get them to bite trolled hardware. VERY good fishing in 8-2 in 300ft of water meaning that there are still lots of fish in the salt. Beaches near the mouths of rivers may be a good place to be on Friday and Saturday.

    Fished Wed morning right at sun rise, three other fly guys out. Only saw one Coho landed about a 6 lb Hen, and that was by a bait guy.
    I did get two hits but no hook ups. I was very happy though because both were on a Clouser pattern that I tyed myself. Can't wait to land a fish on a fly I tyed myself.
