September Pink Reports


MA-9 Beach Stalker
Thanks DimeBrite,

I get enough chums on my elitist beach that I'll
have plenty of smell later in the year.

I'm trying to lay low, say nothing about, you know,
and avoid and ignore all the threats and PMs from
the stalker that has time to read and comment
on my last 50 posts.


Sorry Dave I just couldn't hold back my anger. I need to get mellow and eat my smoked pink sandwhich now.
I havent been able to pull any pinks out of the Puyallup on the fly rod, which is strange as I have been trying all of my go to flies and at different depths.
I must be doing something wrong...

Anyways, tons of Pinks are rising too, does anybody use dry flies? What kind of dry would you use?
I was wondering with the late run of pinks to the Sno is it worthwhile to fish the salt at Mulkiteo? I have not fished there as I spent most of my time in the south but is pretty much over done there.
Thanks for the info.

m.albrecht, Mukilteo is a tough case. the problem is how close to shore the fish will be. i have caught pinks there but only the buzz bomb.
the reason is you normally have to cast as far out as you can (buzzbomb) and hope there are fish swimming in your zone.
plus you have boat traffic, ferry traffic and sea lions. the fish just dont want to get that close. but who knows you could get lucky.
if you have a small boat that would put you in the zone.

Snoho river was good last night. Still seems to be fresh fish pushing upriver (landed three chrome hens) and they like to bite chartreuse or pink flash flies.

Fished Bush Pt. this morning and saw a few pinks jumping around before high tide (8am) then the rest of the jumpers were Coho. Not a lot of backcast room at high tide so I fished the gear rod and went 0/1 with a nice coho.
Spokane Bridge was extremely slow today. Some bite in the morning, virtually none later, although the fish were there.

Guy snagged a very nice coho next to me, put it back. At least 8 lbs.

edit: it was a snagfest. For each caught in the mouth, figure 8 snagged and sent back. There was a boat with 7 dudes on it snagging the evening away, parked in the left side of the channel. Boo.

Donny, you're out of your element...
Tidal Snohomish- 6 cutts, 3 bullheads, 1 bull trout, a long way from a snoho slam. Small pods moving up much of the morning, some jumpers. Gear guys on shore maybe a pink for every four guys trying...
duwamish netting?

Hi board,

Anybody have any idea how long they'll be netting the Duwamish this time around?

And if so, is there a resource on line that has this information? Much appreciated!

Language, its a virus
Nice thing about the fish in the
Duwamish is they are already
preserved with PCB'S and runoff
from the Hat and Boots.

Is Max Ivors still there?
