I am planning on heading to Idaho for several weeks of trout fishing and meet some friends over there. I was hoping to provide my friends a fresh salmon dinner. I explored a number of new beach haunts about a week ago, since I tend to like to avoid the crowds. I thought I had a hot tip from a couple of friends yesterday, so I went there this morning to check it out after sleeping in until 6 am. I got to the beach at 8 am. Fished for awhile and saw no coho. So, I headed out wondering where I might try. I finally caved in and went to one of the new spots I had checked out early and, which, looked really "fishy". I didn't get there until about 9:30 am this morning. I immediately hooked into a number of cutthroat and perhaps a follow from a salmon or two. I tied into a nice cutthroat of I think near 19 inches, which was a solid beauty. I then hooked up with a nice male coho. It made my morning and I am set to bring it to Idaho for a barbeque with my trout fishing bums there. I will miss the coho fishing while gone the next 2-3 weeks! You lucky dogs! They are around to be had. Good luck you all! It was a joy fishing all ALONE, with the new beach to myself this morning!!! Ya gotta love it.
