Still searching for Coho's. I am planning to fish Deception Pass at West Beach using the theory that the fish might be cruising by the beginning of the flood current. I have identified those times to be: Mon 9/28 8:00, Tues 9/29 9:00, Wed 9/30 10:00 I know this theory works on the other side at Hoypus Point, but it is closed this year. Given my last trip down to the beach just south of the Coupeville Ferry they were there 2 hours prior to the morning high tide. I understand that that timing can work for the outgoing tide as well so I plan to experiment with these times there: Mon 9/28 Low 7:00 High 2:00, Tues 9/29 Low 7:30 High 2:30, Wed 9/30 Low 8:00 High 3:00. Looking for input from anyone with local knowledge to help me figure out the Coho puzzle and anybody who wants to join me, let me know when you will be there. I may not hit all of the times I listed but unless WDFW extends the season, we are down to the last 3 days in 2020 for fishing for Salmon on the beaches of West Whidbey.
