I hadn't tried clouser minnows or any weighted fly when I was out there but weighted eye candlefish patterns are a staple out here for stripers and I would love to experiment with them for pacific salmon (maybe even this fall).

I used to fish a candlefish pattern tied on a long shank TMC 911s similar to the surf candy or roger's slim jim (but different). Also tied small squid on the same hook after finding numerous small squid in their gullets, a fancy hoochie fly really. Bucktails were essential to have on hand and then there were the experimental flies some of which worked really well.

Lots of folks contend that the mighty chinook salmon is not prone to take a fly in the saltchuck. How have you guys done on the kings?
