This week the fishing has continued to get better and as a bonus the weather is forecasted to get better this weekend, too.
The Pink salmon and Chum salmon are now beginning to return in mass .
For Pinks- Head out to Echo Cove at a outgoing to low tide, using flies such as the Humpie Hooker, Searunner Special, Smoltzilla- pink, or the Karluk Shrimp. When stripping, try a Strip, Strip, Pause method.
For Chum- Head out to Amalga Harbor and Sheep Creek at low tides. The Chum can get difficult to take a fly once they get close to fresh water, but you can try to entice them with flies such as the Striptease- Pink, White, Purple or Black and Egg Sucking Leech- Purple, Chartreuse, Pink or Black.
For Dollies- They have begun to move back into freshwater. This is the time of year where they could be in freshwater, they could be in saltwater, they could be eating flies like the Stinger Clouser- Gray/White or Olive/White, or they could be eating flies like the Sandy Candy and Striptease- Pink. Try looking in places such as Cowee Creek and Sheep Creek.
For Kings- It seems as though the peak of the run may have slipped by us, because the fishing has begun to slow down, but is still good in a few places. Kings are still being picked up at the mouth of Auke Creek and the mouth of Salmon Creek. Both destinations are an incoming tide or outgoing tide fishing destination. Try flies such as the Squidro, Jumbo Critter, Party Girl and Rockstar. Try swinging through the current if there is enough, if not, try long strips.
Just a reminder, we will be closed July 4th for Independence Day. We will reopen July 5th with normal business hours.
