Dolly fishing is picking up steadily. After a cool early May and spotty fishing, the Dollies are starting to congregate as they feed on out-migrating salmon fry. One contributing factor is the release of DIPAC chum fry. I talked with Rick at DIPAC and he passed along their current fry release info. Here is a brief summary of what has happened and what is coming up:
Here is what I would take away from this information:
A few other spots to try for DIPAC-related Dolly action: mouth of Salmon Creek at the low, shore line next to the Douglas Bridge and adjacent the Dept of Labor building, little Kowee Creek next to the Douglas Bridge, Amalga Harbor (where Peterson Creek enters the saltwater), and after June 1 Eagle Beach by the Boy Scout Camp around the low tide (especially at the farthest tip of the sand spit.)
For non-DIPAC fishing take a look at the mouth of Cowee Creek around the low or Echo Cove out on the sand spit. If you are feeling energetic try walking the loop. Down Cowee to fish the mouth, around the Echo Ranch facility, out to the mouth of Echo Cove to fish, and back in to the parking lot at Echo.
See you on the water! Brad
