Friday and Saturday brought us a classic fall storm with some nice high wind, localized flooding, and coho likely pushing up on the high water. It may be a few days before we have much fishable water. We'll keep our eye on the fishing and post a report as soon as news is available.
A few reasons to not stow your fly gear for the season just yet:
- The commercial fishing fleet is still doing well catching coho in the Juneau area. That means more fish are coming!
- 2013 is turning out to be a really good coho year in general. A strong run usually goes on at least till the end of September with stragglers rolling in well into October.
- Persistance catches fish. Although overall numbers have been good, day to day fly fishing has often been spotty. Keep at it and you will be rewarded.
Stay tuned and head out to look for good water whenever you can.
