    Hello everyone - I'm a long time fly fisherman - primarily for trout in rivers. My buddies are convincing me to try for coho with them over the next few weeks on the Stilly & Skagit. They are both spin casters. What would be a good general set-up I can use? I have a 6, 7, and 8# rods...

    I'm gearing up for my first summer Coho season. Mostly going to be fishing from beaches in the north sound. Would love to learn about your favorite setup. Rod? Line? Flies?

Though I didn't really get into fishing until I first picked up a fly rod 4 years ago, I do know several local hotspots for the various salmon runs. Trouble is, most all my fishing experience has been trout and bass (though...

    In mid-Oct. I decided to do some major work on my boat and it was not done until the end of Dec. that the job was completed. So I was anxious to again chase after winter resident coho. The first part of Jan. the resident coho fishing was very good in the northern part of Marine Area 13. Most...

    All, I'm currently doing a literature review for immature Coho salmon use of habitat in the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Puget Sound- or all of the Salish Sea to make this complete. I'm wondering who has information on depth use of Coho salmon based on size. Fish typically utilize deeper...

    I caught the 6AM ferry over to Bainbridge yesterday to fish Manzanita bay. I was casting from a family friend's beach. Low tide was just after 7AM so I figured I'd fish the incoming tide all AM. There were a bunch of what looked like 3-5lb salmon jumping all morning. Tons of baitfish in the...

    So after singing the eel grass blues this afternoon with nothing going on fish wise, I am wondering what everyone would choose if you could only have one fly to catch both Searun Cutts and Coho.

    Earlier this summer a buddy caught a hatchery coho out in the sound with a chip. Looking up the chip's info on WDFW's website says the fish was from Skykomish river brood stock in 2014, and was released 4/14/2016 from Peale Pass net pens. Being caught in area 11 it doesn't seem like it was...

    Yesterday I landed a sea-run cutthroat(17 inches) which still had it's spawning color. It was absolutely beautiful! Later I landed a sea-run cutthroat that was very silvery and no red slash under its jaw. The orange/olive pectoral fin was the feature that denoted it being a sea-run cutthroat...
