    I had some time open this morning for alittle fishing so I headed over to docs the weather was great and the tide was coming in, it seemed like a good choice. The water was fairly calm and not too much junk floating around but there were no fish showing either but I was there so I gave it a go. The first hour was a bust I tried a few different patterns from size 8 to size 4 without even a touch, tried a woolhead sculpin I just tied nothing so I decided to give a shrimp pattern a try, a new one for me a Gen.Prac. I tied using the redishbrownish rump hackle from a pheasant. I tossed it out let it sink and slowly started little strips sort of hopping it along the bottom, 3rd cast and something grabbed it, flounder I thought to myself until it jumped, what a surprise a sweet little 12" resident salmon fell for it. Never got another touch nor did I see any other fish.
