Has there been a sign up...

I am bringing my Airstream and Chris has his Trailer there all season, NZ Trout bum has (usually ) a Pop Up that sleeps half the population of Guadaljara. Lots of Lanterns and cooking stoves are available, the only thing that is lacking is commitment to places aboard the boats!(this is key) I am going to be alone for the weekend ( so as to avail myself to someone from the board who is without a ride). I too have several tents that will accomadate 5 to 6 adults each, bring your own pads and bag (set it up yourself I'm a host not a flunky) Juro, food is not a problem (as you stated) there are so many good chefs in camp that the only problem will be trying to determine "who" gets to help with the prep and clean up!
Time is "Marching on" if you are going to be there it is "time to cement your intent"

will provide good company for boat ride...gas money as well. ...or whatever else anyone wants as long as it doesnt require knee protection.

i think i've given up on Sekiu....havent had a good trip in a couple years but every attempt i've made to rent a boat at big salmon has ended in failure.

my august is open except for the 13th and the weekend of the 27th.

if anyone needs information from me about the clave, please contact me via phone. 360-460-7479

it's tough to get anything done via the computer when you get on it once or twice a week.

I am locked out of anything but August 26-28th due to conflicts.

The question is what's the likelihood that the quota will be hit before then?

Will I be pigeon-holed into Sekiu only by that time? That's not a bad consolation prize but...

I will likely commit to a ticket very soon -or- plan for a different steelhead trip later on in the fall.

Quota and things

A quick guess is that the quota may fill prior to that but I will have a better idea after this weekend. The shop is still messing with a new hydrolic steering system in the Whaler so will not be there until tonight but have to work part of next week so will email back with a more current report first of the week.

I am excited about the new steering system. Have always had the old cable style and at the end of a ten day trip my right arm feels about 4 inches longer than my left and I have a constant pain in my neck. They say with this system you can run flat out (on calm seas) without touching the wheel. Of course it is a long way from cheap. Oh well, as my old skipper (Moonlight) used to say "it isn't money until you spend it". Hope to see you in late August.

I'm going to be out there all next week, will know more after that. By all accounts, the ocean conditions have made it tough to get out.

It looks like smaller swells are predicted for early next week... but who knows.

I haven't had a decent day at Sekiu since 2001 and I was able to fish out there for most of July, Aug, Sept. 2001 was insane good all season long. I've fished there a couple times each year since, but it hasn't been very good at all.

Cheers,

-tony

juro,

i wouldn't count on neah bay being open that late in august. it is unlikely that southern ports will allow fish to be moved north (even though they cannot catch them) and neah bay will be shut down.

maybe this isn't the best year, but i am still up for meeting up with people and helping as much as i can.

chris

Weekend report

Well, They are Baaaack. Good numbers off Tatoosh and the Whistle Bouy. Still pretty modest in size. Out of 20 or 30 landed the largest was about 7.5. Still, great grabs and some hot little fish. Sunday was a "rock fish" day but those pesky coho kept stealing the fly from them. Did have a monster ling grab a rock again but, as usual, I lost the battle. Didn't catch a single pink but stayed off colors that they like.

The areas both to the south (area 3) and east (area 5) are still open daily for salmon but you have run about six miles south of Skagway past Umitilla (sp?) Rocks or east to the mouth of the Sekiu River. Once you go there and kill a salmon you can not stop in area 4 (Neah Bay) and fish rocks again.

Camp is on station in space 103 at The Cape Motel/Campground. Nice fire pit and lots of room to sit around. Bring a chair and some firewood. Moonlight will be there on Tuesday PM so look for an Airstream and you probably found him.
One other thing to consider for later trips. The Hood Canal bridge will be closed over at least one weekend. Just heard it on the radio so will check on the web site. I think it is www.hoodcanalbridge.com.

See everyone there.
TB

Camp is set up.....

I have my Airstream set up in stall 207 at The Cape RV. From the looks of NZ TB site I will be bringing my firewood to his site much more proper for relaxing than where I have been placed .
Now all I have to do is get them to finish the installation of my new Outboard and I will head back out.
The Ocean was flat calm out there but the "Fog" was pea soup all the way in past Twin Rivers. Good GPS weather

After much wishing, this will not be the year for me. I'm teaching a class this weekend, got the clave and teaching next weekend, Denver coming up early Sept, then a steelhead or atlantic salmon trip sometime in September.

If my fall sortie is in PNW then I will assuredly incorporate a saltchuck outing in the schedule if the quota holds up.

Thanks for the generous gestures everyone has made. We will not be denied in 2006!
