Eric - question on Flats Salmon...

Eric -

Most of my ocean salmon fishing was done in open water or near coastal kelp beds and structure. I have caught some nice fish at high tide near tributaries, but hadn't done it a lot.

Your article makes it clear that they respond to the flood, I was wondering what reaction they have to the ebb tide? In striper country the fish will rush to the shoreline with the incoming, similar to the salmon flats. On the ebb, they back down certain channels and over certain areas that can make the outgoing productive as well.

Did you find any evidence of salmon doing something similar on the outgoing?
