Brian,

I took your cue and tied up a couple micro clousers, but didn't have orange in hand, so I used yellow. Seemed to work great this evening. 3 Cutts to hand.

I put the boat away and broke my rods down, except for one. It was a extremely high tide, so I started to cast off my parents boat ramp. I think I caught 2 juvenile chums, about 6" long. A forked tail like a chum, but bright silver and quite slimy. Would they still be in the sound this time a year on their way out to the ocean?

Also caught a 18" black mouth off the ramp. Foul hooked though.

Good job Sam. Hard to beat yellow or orange for cutts this time of year.

Pretty fun day on the canal today.

The predicted wind never hit by the time I called it a day at 2:30. Wet but pleasant.
Brought a little less then a dozen and a half cutts to hand and missed quite a few as well. Nothing over 15" to hand, but missed several big fish that either eat the popper or jumped and spit the hook.

Got fish on the popper, bead head orange polar chenille bugger, peach marine worm and the Fish Mask baitfish I posted.
The fish shredded so much material off the baitfish that the mask wouldn't stay on the front of the fly any longer. It kept sliding down the hook.

A few pics from today.

Brian,

When hooking those cutts where they taking it a little deep? The three I caught on the micro closer they all got hook in the roof of the mouth, but, I drew blood on each. I'm not sure I like the hook riding up. What's there to prevent that?

Great looking bows Coley.

Sam,
I'd rather have them hooked in the roof of their mouths versus their tongue or gills if possible. That is actually what I like about clousers is the hook up presentation.
If they are hooked roof of the mouth and draw a little blood, they should be fine upon release.

Yes Coley, great looking bows. Love your photo essays. Better than the grip and grins I take.

I agree with your take on hooking them. I just was surprised I was drawing blood. The other night was the first night I had any success with the clousers. Other flys I've caught them on typically just get them in the lip. But, I've released a few this year with the fly still in their mouth.

Well, can't wait for another calm evening to go chase some cutts.

Last nights blow sure was something. I went down to my parents house and we barricaded the garage door on the boat house. It's got a southern exposure, and when the tides up, it can do some serious damage to the door. Fortunately, the wild wind was a few hours after the high, and calmed down before this mornings high.

Here is my contribution to the October thread. First pic is a small native steelhead that took a skated dry fished with a 6wt on the Grande Ronde. (Fish got in one last flip that hit the camera lens)



This one is a nice rainbow from the Yakima that took a stonefly nymph fished with a 4wt last week.



God didn't make enough Octobers, though the last few days have felt more like Nov.
