I should’ve listened to my gut but Phil K. wanted to get out for another shot at some Coho so we agreed to bust out for another stab at the Silvers.
Low tide was 8:40 am and it was a very low, 0.5 feet. We arrived at 7:40 and prepped for the hike out and saw about a dozen anglers already on the flats.
My hopes were high even though a report from the day prior indicated that the run was over and heavy winds would cause massive problems for casting and sighting fish.
Upon our arrival, we did see pods of fish moving up, but they were sluggish and on my first hookup, got into a Chum. Several fish later would also reveal themselves as being Chum, and my hopes were fleeting along with the incoming tide. Phil K. was able to engage into a 28″ hen that took the pink over white clouser. That would be the only fish for us and we only saw three other fish banked by two gear guys.
We look forward to the Coho return in 2012! It’s been a great run so far and now onto several other watersheds in search of more of the silvery creatures!
