I am heading out to Copalis, WA this weekend to dig for clams. I have a free morning and I was wondering if there are any places to fish around the area. I am thinking about giving the beach a shot for perch. If you have any pointers, please PM me.

Thanks,

ehhhh. I wasn't able to scare up, nor even buy, a surf perch last week, using bait. Sea surface temp was around 46 F this morning. However, low tide is at the crack of dawn this weekend...a good tide and time survey the beach topography for potential perch fishing as the morning progresses.

I am one of the few local anglers that would occasionally prospect for surf perch here during the winter months. Its been colder than hell frozen over lately, anyway. I think I had to use my "Eyes In The Woods" card to get a fire going out in my shop fireplace the other day. Thing was just taking up space in my wallet. I never see nothin' no more no how. Less risky for me.

I can still C&R fish for trout in Marine areas 2-1 and 2-2 year round. So at least I can still walk out on the spits any time and practice my casting with a cutthroat fly.

Copalis River is still open for trout thru Feb, and for salmon thru end of this month. I don't know how its fishing. Check the regs for details.
