  1. Questions & Answers
    New to the forum, Washington and Beach fishing for SRC. I'm in the south puget sound and until I can get my hands on a kayak or small boat I'm limited to beach fishing. My question is how do you pick which beach if you have a day to fish and do you just stay there and work it or leave and try...

    I'm heading out to Copalis Beach (Iron Springs) in December and there several creeks / river mouth close to the resort that look fishy when viewed via google earth: Boone Creek Copalis River Joe Creek Elk Creek Has anyone fished these areas for sea run cutthroats in late December? If so, any...

    Hi all. This is my first post - I recently joined, but I have been lurking for 5 years or so. I live in NJ, but get out to the Seattle area about once every year or so, and usually read this forum for the couple of months in advance of a trip. I started to devote one day of each trip to fish...

    Hello, I am trying to figure out when SRC spawn on the Kitsap Peninsula. I have been told early winter, mid winter, late winter, early spring, and now told that it won't be until probably end of April that the SRC come out of the small creeks/rivers. The chum fry have been flushed out by recent...

    Braved the tempest today for a couple hours and caught what I am 75% sure was a rezzie coho. Didn't have the heavy spotting of a cutthroat but did have that purplish sheen of a coho. Was a real fatty! Thing is, it didn't have a clipped fin. Are there "natural" rezzie coho? Do they miss some at...

    Saturday was my most productive day in the salt since I started fishing this past summer. I've been reading this forum religiously for the past 6 months and feel like it finally starting coming together for me this weekend. I can't thank this community enough! Now for the report….I got out to...

I am going to run this the same way as the current resident coho swap I am wrapping up now as it was the most enjoyable swap I have handled yet to date. so 11 tiers total. that's 10 flies, a nice manageable number. once the swap is full I will start a...

    Hello all, Curious as to recommendations for a vise that will be capable of tying SRC flies all the way up to flies for steelhead? Is there such a vise? Trying to gain knowledge and make a purchase soon. Price cap at about $350. Thank you for the help!

    A project I've been working on the last few days, I tied up some Puget Sound SRC fly selections for the Boise FF show. Ended up with a couple extra selections so thought I'd throw them up here. 12 flies in a selection, two each of the following : Rubber Legged Clouser, the Stonefish UV Resin...

    Just decided to take my question from the Baitfish thread and make a new one.... saw some great questions about shiner perch of which i am basically adding and paraphrasing here: -Has anyone actually seen an SRC eat a shiner perch or seen evidence of that at all? -Someone mentioned that shiners...

    Saved money deciding NOT to spend money on another fly rod, soooooo.....how do you guys feel about using an inflatable kayak (maybe a Hobie i11) on the Hood Canal? I currently don't have a boat and would like to open up more water for SRC.

    Sometimes it is your fishing partner that really drives or motivates you to try something new. Maybe it's a new lake, new fly, new species, or in this case...chasing SRCs in the salt. While I may push more for the alpine stuff and hitting those remote hidden lakes, I must credit...

    I headed over to Herb's cabin this past Tuesday. Snoqualmie Pass bare and dry and not a lot of traffic so the trip was fast and uneventful. @Old Man likes to remind newcomers to look at the blue lines on maps. This road is less than a blue line but it takes us to a wonderful beach that's...

    I am trying to get a pulse of what the SRC angling community deems an ethical frequency to fish a beach. We all have our favorite beaches and they are favorites because they are consistently frequented by bad ass wild trout that are very agreesive hunters. However, given what I read about the CC...

    Seriously though, I was pondering this, as I imagine many before me have as well. What would be a proper dressing for a winter cloudy water fly. - Flash? - Colour? Darker or lighter? - Rattles? What aspect do SRC hunt via sound? - Scent ( If it enhances the experience...what does it matter to...

    i am looking for the ideal commando tip for my 9ft 5 weight used for SRC beach fishing. I was thinking of a 7.5 floating but didn’t know what sink rate for the sinking tip. I was told by OPST to use the bucket and then someone else said run and another said riffle. I am just trying to find one...

    Sitting on the banks of a favorite Coast Range stream this past week, rigging my weaponry and watching a handful of enormous but very dark salmon (they might have been summer run steelhead not sure) I started thinking about my beloved sea run cutthroat and the very nature of our sport. It has...

    Hey all, I've got a business trip to PDX coming up in two weeks with a couple of days to fish prior (Nov 5 -6). I had originally thought about driving over to Maupin, but it seems like I can be at the southern end of the Puget Sound in similar time, and I'd really like to fish for SRC's. Any...
