Been at Hoypus Point the last 3 days and may have seen 1 fish jump. Otherwise, no action. Planning to check out Ala tomorrow and maybe Friday afternoon for a few hours.

Several of us are planning to chase the hopefully not so elusive Sea Run Cutthroats. Camping at Belfair State Park and will fish multiple beaches in the area. They are supposed to be there then and the tides look good. Anybody is welcome to join us.

Ran across this article about a company that recycles old fly lines. Great use as opposed to sending them to a landfill or just cluttering up your storage space.

Heading back to Manchester State Park to camp and hopefully meet up with some Sea Run Cutthroats on the peninsula. Plan to fish multiple beaches while we are there. Several Fidalgo Fly Fishers joining me. Join us if interested.

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.

Washington State Council Fly Fishers International just sent out their May newsletter with the cover article written by Bill Wheeler, an individual many of us have run into. I thought he was just an amazing caster. Come to find out, he is a retired doctor who even has specific experience with some of what we are dealing with today. I think his cover article is an amazing summary of our current world with sound advice for us to follow. Yes, even fly fishers need to be safe! Article is attached:

I just (5-5-20 at 7:45 am) made a drive by to Pass, Erie, Campbell and Heart lakes. All were pretty busy and parking lots are packed. There was one spot left at Pass and if I was going to go fishing, that is where I would have launched. The parking lot didn't have anyone hanging out. The others all looked like party hardy. Heart did have a city official looking like he was trying to maintain some order. So, my suggestion is that it all depends on your risk tolerance. In every case, I would be prepared to go to another spot or just back home. I am hoping that this will slow down in the next couple of days and weeks and I will see you out on the water, but not in the parking lot.

I was out on Pass Lake this week and had quite a bit of action, even got a couple to the net. The lake still has the Toxic Algae sign up and there is stuff floating on the surface but the fish didn't seem to care. There were a half a dozen boats on the lake. The Fidalgo Fly Fishers are having an outing this Tuesday in the afternoon/evening. The word is that when the lights go out, the fish go crazy. Dinner afterwards at the Rockfish Grill at 7:00. Let me know if you would like to join us.
