I really can't believe how quickly July just went by! Well, hello August here we go...the local beaches are seeing great surface action on both high and low tide cycles. Mostly resident Coho that are around 3 to 5 lbs. The nice thing is how aggressive they are to the surface presentation. Poppers that resemble bait fish about 3 to 4 inches long are doing the trick. Retrieve them fast and short as you strip, and if one starts to boil or follow ...strip faster! Pt. No Pt., North Twin spits, Eglon are all seeing these fish right now. And with any luck within the next few weeks we start to see the ocean run Coho.
Also it's Hopper season on the Yakima. Washingtons Blue ribbon trout stream. I am working through out the summer doing day floats for 2 guests. I work and float the Cle elum sections and this makes it a easy days commute from Seattle.
