|SE Report 6-3-10|
The Windfall Creek sockeye fishery is open again. Wednesdays and Saturdays for the month of June. No fishing at all on the other 5 days. A few intrepid anglers made their way up on June 2nd. No sockeye were reported but water levels were good. The Herbert River was raging due to all the warm weather. Hopefully this will encourage the fish to push up.
Sockeye Lanterns and Red Hots have consistently been the top two flies at Windfall. Last year we introduced a new line of flies call the Sockeye Lightning . They come in 5 different colors and fished really well. The Purple Sockeye Lightning was a good "sleeper" fly when the usual colors weren't working.
Kings are slowly making their way in. Jumpers have been seen here and there in the channel and a few have been caught on conventional gear at DIPAC. It won't be long!
See you on the water. Brad
