Anchovies?
It’s hard to tell for me but the chovies were in here spawning a few months before.

haven’t seen many big predators
the cutthroat do not like the long skinny mud bay I live on
i believe they are too exposed to avian pressure with the monochromatic backdrop the tall firs for perching

hey DG - any silvers out there?
I plan to meat fish on Saturday and am curious if I should be in the salt (same technique) or fresh water (Lake Wa.). feel free to PM if you don't want to share.

thanks-dp

Really sucked out there today!

That rainbow looks very familiar, I wonder how it happened? :rolleyes:
Tried to catch some unicorns on the fly or snag a pot of gold for a while, but although conditions were optimal none were harmed today...the same thing can't be said about ocean coho (Now oficially "Fall coho") which sacrificed themselves and honored the harvest moon...but those were not on the fly today! A complete sampler of weather conditions early AM in the Sound to welcome the Autumn: no wind and cloudy, sunny and coho chop, windy against the tide, rain and rainbows, wind and coho chop and most of the combinations of those. Agree with @Chucker , it totally sucked out there today.

I’ve been out in MA10 nearly every morning for the last few weeks, feel free to shoot me a message for deets. I hear those LW coho are tough…

MA10 Beach this morning, nothing decided to tug back. But! I did see something thrashing about maybe 150 feet from shore. It looked like a swimmer struggling to stay afloat... Then realized it was a coho struggling to break free from a seal. Quite a large fish, too.

I always assumed that seals kept their catch under water... Why would they want to give away their spots so easily? Planning on heading out tomorrow with my fins and some incisor implants.

Speaking of Area 10, I have seen a lot of pictures of fish caught from area 10 looking very dark. Humpies turning green with humps on their backs, Chinook that are a deep bronze color. As far as I knew the only fish that turn this dark are spawning in creeks extremely close to shore. Anyone know why so many dark fish are taken from there?

Hatcheries?
