We should be
flooded with silvers but we aren't, atleast not yet maybe.... Unfortunately it is still slow to fair, some days are decent but then the next day skunked....Sekiu has been unseasonably slow too, very very few fish caught when I last checked Creel reports on WDFW website.
I have been seeing fish on the finder, and have caught a few, although most are smaller 4-7 lb fish that are likely resident coho. Many of the fish I am seeing on my electronics are deeeeeep, like 80-100' or deeper down to 150 ish, even at first light in morning. Are they coho? Maybe, could also be some of the lockjaw pinks that are still around/funneling in.
I'm guessing the coho aren't showing until very late OR have a usual case of Puget Sound lockjaw.....I've been having my best luck pounding the rips off PnP or Scatchet Headwith an Ace Hi Fly behind a small 8" flasher. Pink or green Ace Hi has been working well for me.
IF your itchin to get into some coho in steady numbers, I'd look to the resident coho, PM me if you'd like more info. They are smaller (as said, 4-7 lbs) but are in good numbers in a spot or two I know of and aren't too tough to get to bite....
Don't chase reports...Be the report others chase....
