Another season has come to a close. It seems to never come fast enough or last long enough. Overall, a solid year. Great scenery….

And of course, pretty solid fishing. Although I still have not crossed the double digit mark on a beach caught coho and I did not land an adult chinook off the beach this year, there were enough decent coho around to make me happy. Here is a sample of this fish caught….

Although I may pay a visit or two this fall and winter to chase SRC, I really look forward to meeting up again next July.

For now, it’s time to continue to chase coho in some higher number MA’s and start making the transition to chum and eventually SRC. Pretty cool fishery we have in our backyards.

So how’d you all do. I saw a lot of fly guys out there having success this year. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

31/46 on silvers (2 lbs or bigger) and 9/12 on pinks in MA9. I didn't catch any silvers over 6 pounds. The resident silver fishing was good until the end of August, very sporadic in September. The larger migratory "ocean" silvers stayed away from the MA9 beaches this summer, but the gear anglers in boats did well getting them on down riggers. Overall, it was a slow MA9 beach salmon season and kinda disappointing. At least MA10 is still open, so it's not over yet.

I landed 75- 80 coho and a few pinks 2+ pounds this year in MA 9 in 35 outings. That number was bolstered significantly by one three day weekend this year where I landed 35 ish (lost count after 25). Take those 3 days out and I averaged ~1.25 fish per outing. I agree, not on fire by any means. That’s a lot of casting practice. It was enough to keep me interested though.

Beach coho - the steeelheading of the 21st century :). Off to chase some MA 10 fish now. 3-5 so far over three trips. I’ll take that for 10.
