What no one gotten any Pinks yet in the Sound?
I show that by this time 2 years ago I was already into them and with getting back from AK Sunday night I was hoping to take Amie fishing for them this weekend since she still a little ticked on not getting to head to AK to fish with me.
I will post the AK report later when I can add the photos to it.

Flyfishing is so "Metal"
With pinks where there's one there's bound to be more but they won't be seen in any real numbers for about 3 or 4 more weeks. If the predictions are even close to true August should be a bounty year and we'll be up to our eyeballs in pinks soon enough.

So I am going into year three or four of fishing this area. From what I remember the Pinks never really penetrate past the Narrows. Correct?

plenty of good beach fishing for them.
Heard of one caught trolling in the salt. i havent seen one yet myself or heard of any fly caught fish. i just hope the silvers show up. screw the pinks!

its not hard when they are around...find fish... throw something pink in the water...
just got a report that a friend got one this morning of Yeomalt pt. on B.I.
Amie and I searched a large part of area 11 both Saturday and Sunday mostly just trolling flies behind our boat and looking for either Coho or Pinks. Met only one person who had even caught a Salmon and that was from Pt Robinson fishing down rigger and saw few bait fish of any type. Only other salmon we saw caught was the 12" Chinook Amie caught while trolling our flies, though we both had one other fish of about the same size on for a moment each. All in all it seemed to be pretty slow around area 11 and we will most likely wait 2 weeks before we go looking again. Instead we may do a little camping and fishing down South next weekend.
We did talk to a couple guys doing some type of a survey on bottom fishers and saw one person tossing a fly off of 3-tree point and another fly fisherman using a kayak close to around one of my favorite fishing holes at certain times of year. First other person I have ever seen close to that beach fishing. We also saw a lot of crab pots still out on Sunday which we should not have seen since crabbing was closed on Sunday.
Still it was a nice day to be on the water and it helped to beat the heat a little.
Last night I was fishing around 9:00 for SRCs off the south end of Bainbridge Island. About 20 feet in front of me I watched a 7-8 pound salmon roll on the surface. I threw good cast right by it and got nothing.:beathead: :beathead:
i just hope the silvers show up. screw the pinks
I talked with a buddy this morning, he told me that his friend was crabbing out of Maple Grove C.Is. this weekend. He had his line in the water with a buzz bomb on it, just sitting there by it's self. As they were pulling up the pots a 6lb silver slamed into it. I think it's going to be a great year for Salmon!!

Pm me if ANYONE would like to get together and fish the beaches. I have little know how and would love to learn and teach my father later! Thanks guys.
I got my first pink of the year on Friday night, they should start rolling in before too long.

On the beach, in a boat? I've never fished for salmon with a fly but would like to start and was thinking about giving the Dash Point/Browns Point area a try this year from the beach. Any suggestions?
