Vancouver area beach fishing?

Anyone got any tips etc I'd like to give it a try, I'm thinking the mouth of the cap should be good but it's an awkward area to fish.

Man would I like to drive up from Seattle and try. I've heard it's heaven up there.

When?

Also, what to bring in the way of tackle?

I'm still trying to figure out where, I figure a rolled muddler or even a coho blue would be just the ticket.. mind you, the cutties should be moving around soon...

Time to dust off the Orvis 5wt I guess....

Tackle?

If the Salmon are still running I am limited for rods. I am still waiting for Juro to get my Skagit and Steelheader specialist in the Shop. I think Ryan and Dennis at Kauffman's are going to get a restraining order against me if I show up again asking about those rods. I would more than likely whip out the Salar and toss 4, 5 or 600 grain heads, both in the intermediate or DC big boys. I'd drag sand lance and herring immitations from my Salt fly box. If I had a floating head in that wt range I toss the world famous Miyawaki Popper

If I were just chasing cutts, my choice would be the Sage 5120. Shooting heads in the 3 and 400 grain range tossing the same flies but in the cutt size.

I'd have to tie up some other flies from this site too.

Matt -

I appreciate your desire to get these rods in hand, I can tell you that I share the same enthusiasm! We expect to get a large stock order to the warehouse any day now, and already have the fast track to Bellevue ready to go.

I'll let you know!

Not a problem Juro. I may be pestering everyone just a bit too much. My fault really for busting my 14 footer and not having anything in the same size to back it up and the only 13 footer have is sooooo slow, I am saving it for friends and family that want to try out the Spey cast. I'm thinking around the 21st and I'll just have to wait.

Unfortunately, you just missed the best beach fishing for the pinks. Cates Park in north Van is good when the pinks are in. Mouth of the Seymour was dynamite this year, if you don't mind all the snaggers around. I have also had some luck on Ioco beaches for sea run cutties and the odd pink or coho that strays in. The mouth of the Cap is tough and is best when the tide is out and on the flood, however, you have to be on the ball not to get caught out in the fast approaching tide. Tight lines.
