At this point in the season, variety is the name of the game. You could begin your day Sockeye fishing (if it's a Wednesday or Saturday) and end it Dolly Varden fishing.
This week the Dolly Varden and sea run cutthroat fishing has only gotten better since last week. They seem to be cultivating closer to the Salmon Creek area than anywhere else, but have still been found along Boy Scout Beach, Sheep Creek, Echo Cove, and now Auke Creek. Try focusing on the outgoing to low tide and low into the incoming flood tide. These hungry trout are feeding on the AK Clouser Minnow and the Stinger Clouser Minnow in Gray/White and Olive/White. Focus on stripping your line in quick, short strips to attract these Dollies to your fly.
On the sockeye front: our inside sources say that last Saturday and this Wednesday no sockeye was spotted at Windfall Creek. With rain in the forecast, it will likely help entice a few more fish into the creek for the Saturday opener this week. Try flies such as the Sockeye Lightning, Sockeye Killer, and Red Hots under split shot to swing up a chrome sockeye. Remember; fishing is only open on Wednesdays and Saturdays for the month of June.
