Just to be sure my Thursday experience at Ala Spit wasn't a fluke, I returned there yesterday afternoon. The incoming tide was a little higher than before, so I was fishing different water, but the end result was the same: no fish. I can't believe it will be long before fish start showing up at Ala. Do you think it's the cold weather? I've never heard anyone make a guess as to what trigers the SRCs and DVs to leave the rivers. Has anyone else?

I think they follow the Chum fry out of the rivers. The Confluence Fly Shop posted this:
Not much in the way of cutthroat off the North Sound beaches until later in the spring but there’ve been a few bull trout around Skagit Bay. The beach fishing should improve into April and May as more chum fry begin to show up in the salt.
