Leland Miyawaki Tyler,

Yesterday, I found a nest of searuns. They were popper crazy. Too bad I wasn't up
to the task. Report to follow.

Lemme know a window. So I can make sure the tides and time are correct and we get into fish.

kush Leland,

If they actually close the Thompson maybe I'll have some time to check out some of that popper action you've been telling about.

Leland Miyawaki Brian,

No it wasn't at the Narrows.

The access to the bridge and Doc's looks like a challenge even for residents. As I drive over, I don't see many boats fishing let alone shore anglers. I can only hope that when it is finished, the fishing improves with the structure and new eddies that will be formed. Also, to have a major engineering project like a mile long suspension bridge being built in our backyard is kinda exciting.

Olyfly Leland,
was this at the Narrows? If so, ... or regardless... how is the beach access there these days?

mattzoid Sounds like I can break out the 5120 for cutts in the salt again.

A New Season

Preston and I spent a few hours on the salt today fishing for searun cutthroat. The weather was glorious with a light breeze coming from the north it was a beautiful fall day. The fishing, however, was slow even for the people near the bridge tossing gear at what few chums and dark coho that were still milling about. A few cuts cleared the water every so often around us but none came to our flies.

While Preston returned to the parking lot to attend to his locked-key-in-the car, I had some action (with no witnesses, once again). First, a salmon, possibly a coho, happy-jumped near me and on the next cast turned on my popper. He gave it a half-hearted boil, chomped down on the popper and immediately let it go after putting some serious teeth marks into the foam head. Later on down the beach, I hooked my first fall searun in the salt this year. It was an absolutely gorgeous buck of 15 or more inches and was perfectly proportioned. When it jumped in the sunlight, it's fins glowed like a Madison River brown and while he rested in my hand and caught his breath, I complimented him on being so handsome.

I wished Preston was there with his camera this fish was way too pretty not to share. It's a beautiful beginning to new season.
