Hey Bill... Plenty of opinions out there I'm sure, but I think you'll find things are pretty slow in North Sound this time of year. Most of the cutthroat up there are back in their native rivers for the winter and the resident coho fishing has been less than stellar so far. The South Sound rivers and streams tend to be much smaller than those of the North and therefore many cutts will enter streams later or they'll spawn and return to the salt much sooner than their cousins to the north. This lends the South Sound to being more productive in the winter months. Of course there's always an exception to the rule, so I'm sure someone will chime in and tell you fishing is great. Enjoy the boat ride and if you're lucky enough to find a fish, pass along a report. Good Luck!
