I fished a couple of South Sound inlets early last week, and I found some areas with quite a few chum fry and some with very little. The fishing was OK -- certainly not Trout-O-Rama -- but I didn't expect tons of fish. I landed a few of Roger's "cookie-cutter" fish, which I'm always happy to see. I also saw, but did not hook, a couple of big fish. In my experience, the best fishing over chum fry happens in April and May. I agree that it's a good idea to start out with small patterns and "match the hatch" in size as the season goes on. Everyone has spring fever right now -- yeah, me too -- and perhaps we all remember the great fishing from March of 2013. I'm hoping a slower early season means a better late season -- say, late May and early June. And, hey, don't forget those pink fry!
