Pssst...Juro

I think the 'Straits' are calling you...

Taken from Thursday's Seattle Times...

Added Doug Milward, state Fish and Wildlife's head salmon resource manager: "The coho (at Westport) averaged 4 pounds, which are big for this time of the year, and the chinook ran about 10 pounds, with some big honkers in the catches as well. When we start getting into July and August, those coho are going to be huge."

And while you are knocking one coho after another with a popper...you can drop a big Sea Habit down for a big 'nook!!

For the first time in a decade, chinook fishing runs July 1-31 in the western Strait of Juan de Fuca at Neah Bay from Tatoosh Island east to Sail Rock. Anglers in this area are allowed to keep a chinook whether it is marked or unmarked. For best results, hit the incoming tide around Mushroom Rock, Slant Rock and Waadah Island.

Maybe you will have to personally deliver our next CND order!!

Gives me shivers down my spine to think about daybreak over the straits, buzzing out into the rolling swells with visions of emerald-backed chrome hooknoses going airborne and ripping backing with knuckle busting speed!

Coincidentally I do have business in Seattle later this summer / fall and it will be absolutely critical to do some field testing of new products!

The latest rumble of a rumor has an overflight of the milling grounds in the N. Pacific with schools of fish "larger than any we've seen in 20 years." This observation was supposedly made by one of the fisheries groups. Dunno if it's true, but reports have silvers schooling off Silver King and reports of humpies being snagged by guys jigging for bottomfish there.

I can see those silvers in the kelp right now: pop, pop, swoosh!

It makes me wish I wasn't going to be gone for 10 days in August, but since part of that will involve reds and yellowfins on flies, I guess I can do it. But come September...

COHO CLAVE!!! How about it? Can't crowd when there are two on a boat and a lot of saltchuck to cover. But we could definitely cut the lodging costs down by splitting the big rooms and have some good times and tales...

Sounds good to me. I've got a beach trip to Telegraph Cove on Vancouver in mid-August for coho, pinks and searuns off the beach. My poppers should be tuned up well by then!

Leland.

AWESOME!

There really wouldn't be any limit to how many people could sign up for this since each vessel is free to roam and take their own water without crowding each other. The apres' fish gatherings could be a hoot as well. The question is will the season extend into September and how long...

The season at Neah Bay may close earlier than the September 14 cutoff if the quota is met. The season at Sekiu is scheduled to run through the 30th with no quota (hatchery fin-clipped fish only). Later than that, you have to fall back to the Sound; area 9 (Port Townsend and area south) is open until the 30th of November.

September Vacations

I'll be in Ontario from Sept 6 to 13, so those weekends are no good for me.

Ideally, I'd like to see late August, because there seems to be the most fish around, with a mix of hatchery and native and a smattering of big hooknoses.

my .02,

DS

I am liking Brian's recomendation of late August as last year, the coho were all in deep water in September.

Sounds great - but alas I can't make the last week of August as I'm taking the family to the other side of the hills for a bit o fun in the sun.

Do what works for you guys and if anyone is interested in an earlier or later trip, I'd be game.

area 4 (neah bay) will remain open until the 14th of september for coho. we didn't eat up a smaller coho quota last season, or the quotas the previous two years. the kings will hopefully make it through july, but the coho fishing will remain open.

have fun in sekiu, i'll remain in the ocean.
