Yes, there are a few HO's that believe they own the stretch of beach all the way down to the low tide mark. :rolleyes:
So there property grows and shrinks with the tide? Gotta love it. Id be happy to let some one fish out infront of my place if I knew that it was a fishy spot. Just as long as they clean up after them selves.

And that is why so many property owners are like that. Allot of inconsiderate people leaving trash, beer cans and bottles...You'll see what I mean when the big fishies are in.:rolleyes:

Could you guys confirm whether or not I am correct with this:

All beach is open to public fishing as long as it is accessed via a public access point.

I am almost positive on this one, but only through other people telling me. Just firgured I would confirm it since it came up. Thanks.

When do the big ones start running at Purdy?
Purdy really isn't the greatest salmon beach, you may get lucky and hook into one but there are a lot of better beaches around for targeting the big guys. Chinook are there in Aug, Coho late Aug to Nov and Chum Nov to Dec. These are basically the same general rules at other estuarine beaches.

On a side note the fish at Purdy get the crap netted out them by the local tribes so starting in August through the end of the chum run the beach is usually littered with a ton of dead dog fish and seals making it a little less appealing to fish at.

In the fall, anywhere that has a creek mouth nearby that gets a decent run of salmon will have fish to catch. They may be lockjaw at times but eventually theres biters to be had. However those are just estruary fish.

I agree about it not being the best salmon beach, but it can have its days. I've caught quite a few resident silvers there. I have a non digital photo at home of a 12 lb blackmouth caught by another angler there. What a battle!
We used to catch quite a few blackmouth there in January through March.

I have not been up to Puget sound fly co. lately to ask and buy some, but what kind of fly should I throw out for salmon? I finally got SRC kind of dialed in now just wondering what to throw for salmon.
