Kings are done, time to move on.

Any beach or boat reports for coho. Not many boats in north Area 10... Maybe they aren't here yet?

Here is the WDFW address for different areas of our State..

https://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/reports/creel/Puget


After all the meetings that I attended during NOF, and hearing the glowing reports of what was supposed to be "large Coho numbers for 2019, I'm not seeing them when I look at the "creel reports"....

Time tells all....

There are billions of them out in the ocean off of Queets. Ok maybe not billions but there are a lot of them. All the charter boats that make the 3 hour trip from Westport are limiting out while releasing 4 times as many native Coho. Not many Chinook.

I saw a number of coho caught and hooked on Puget Sound yesterday.
Not hot by any means but enough to keep things interesting.

Still a little slow but Id say by next weekend it will be pretty worthwhile.

The fact that theyre staying in the ocean longer is a great sign. Theyll put on significant weight out there! Hopefully by the time they hit the sound in earnest its a nice healthy run of fish.

Over the years I've seen the king run peak the first and second week of August. it closed late this year, but my last two fish at closing were my biggest, same with a couple of my friends. Seems the bigger fish were later.

Not saying coho are late, hoping they show and build in size like the king run did.

Melanie and I caught 3 yesterday south of Greys Harbor a bit, had to work for them. They are up north in strong numbers, I believe we'll run up there soon if more fish don't move south. We limited out 3 or 4 weeks ago, but it's been very slow close to Westport lately. The ratio of hooked to wild fish is amazing for us, though. For 9 coho we have released 2 wild. Our last day out of Westport last year we went 4/4 hatchery. Yesterday it was 3 for 3. Skill in catching fish is paramount but it helps to have luck in the sorting out process. Bob

Creel reports show lots of pinks being caught in MA 8-2/9/10 and coho starting to show up (1 per angler) out in the Strait. I'd bet we start getting decent numbers of ocean coho in Pugetropolis in a week or so.

I was in Alaska last week and the coho fishing was good, maybe even a little bigger than normal.

Reminds me of a few years ago while beach fishing.
Dude walks up to me with his rod rigged with a buzz bomb and asks me what Im fishing for after I had just landed a fish.
I tell him Im fishing for coho.
He says cool, when do the silvers show up? rofl

Looked in my diary from last year and on Sept. 2nd we landed a limit of 6 coho by 0800 off West Pt. It had been good at least a week before that. I'm hard pressed to even bother this weekend based on reports. Hope they are late.

well, 4 years ago, 2015....there were lot's of both silver jacks and hatchery Coho in the Chehalis River. Last part of August and 1st week of September, the river was "like the old days", bank fishermen and boat fishermen caught lots of limits.....yes the river was open for adult Coho AND THE LIMIT was 3 adults.

This is also the year that after the QIN and NT seasons....the whole Chehalis system was closed down for conservation.

Classic example---forecast "lots of returning fish", reality set in "missed forecast", over did the closure, there were summer run steelhead and Chum available...grrrrrrrrr

I know that feeling all to well stonefish. I have called out sick a many of times to get on a hot bite. It was totally worth it too.

The fish gods have blessed me a couple times this year with some perfect coho. The season just started too. wink

With these evening tides, are you guys finding a better bite at dawn or the high? (Or somewhere in between, I know different beaches can fish better on incoming vs. outgoing)?

One more question for you. I'm gonna take my kids over to Whidbey tomorrow to sling some Rotators off the beach. Here's the trick. My boys are 5 and 7 and just getting the hang of spinning rods - and now will be letting loose with 9 foot rods and heavy lures. So probably need a little elbow room due to liability issues.

We'll be out there from mid-afternoon into the high, so guessing the main spots will be busy (based on my solo trips the last couple weeks).

Good pink/coho combo beach where you can stake out your own space? I'm thinking maybe walking down quite a ways at Bush...even towards the little bay/middle part of it. Not sure if the fish come in close even in the bay.

Or other ideas? I don't love Fort Casey for pinks...

If there are still humpies around, I have actually put a jig under a bobber and let my kids just slowly reel it in. It helps if they are having trouble keeping it off the bottom. When the humpies were in, they hit it just fine.

Fished with a friend Tuesday out of PA. Ended up with two coho and two pinks. A contact in Sekiu said theyre doing well on coho and the pink numbers are dropping off some.

Big pressure drop since yesterday will get things moving. Re-evaluating getting out this weekend.
