Westport Wide Open for Silvers
Darin Koob from Outer Escape called in yesterday with a hot coho report from Westport. He was fishing with Bret Ferris of Ferris’s Guide Service and said they couldn’t keep the silvers off in 175 feet of water in front of the Quinault Casino. Darin said most of the fish were hitting a Wicked spinner and they were also getting quite a few silvers to hit cut plug herring. Captain Ferris said the bite has also picked up around Buoy 6 and 8 along the south jetty. It looks like the huge silver salmon forecast for the Chehalis River system just may come to fruition.
Sekiu Cranking out Silvers
The fishing report on the front page of Olson’s Resort website says the fishing there is “hot, hot, hot!” Last weekend. Tara Hergert at Olson’s says anglers are catching a lot of silvers right now on spoons, bait, hoochies, flies, and just about anything that might catch a salmon. She also said the beach fishing has been outstanding right off the jetty in front of Olson’s and off the mouth of the Clallam River. Anglers are casting Buzz Bombs off the beach and having plenty of success.
Silver Action Hot on Puget Sound
Anglers are flat our hammering the silvers on Puget Sound right now. Most of the action is occurring between Mukilteo and Edmonds, but there’s also been plenty of fish down at Redondo and Point Robinson. Tom Nelson from the Outdoor Line has been getting his limit every day trolling a Black Ace Hi Needlefish behind a “O” or “OO” Luhr Jensen dodger and in the early morning hours a cut plug herring behind a 4 ounce sinker has also been working great. At Everett on Thursday of this past week WDFW staff checked 51 boats with 188 coho. That’s good fishing folks!
Silvers Cruising Shoreline in Hood Canal
Ben Rogers from Defiance Marine (360-813-3600) in Bremerton is reporting good silver fishing at Salisbury Point on the Hood Canal. He says the guys from the shop have been getting limits of coho at Salisbury fishing herring under a float or casting pink and silver Flying C spinners off the beach. He says the fish are right up on the beach right now and very accessible to bank fisherman. Don’t forget to hit Defiance Marine on October 6th for their fall river kick off day. They’ll have seminars all day long, tackle reps on hand, lots of good food, and a tackle swap meet. Duane Inglin and Rob Endsley from the Outdoor Line will also be at the event.
Sea Run Cutty’s Patrolling Beaches in South Sound
Anil Sravastava from Puget Sound Fly Company says the sea run cutthroat fishing in the south sound is the best he’s ever seen it. He’s had great reports in the fly shop from beaches in Olympia, Shelton, and around both Harsteen and Anderson Islands. He recommends using small baitfish patterns 1 to 3 inches long and don’t be surprised if you hook into a coho. Anil says there’s quite a few of them around also.
