King time?

  1. OK, so I am steelhead obsessed. But 63,000 kings passed Bonneville. Yesterday. OMG. Might be time to switch species for a bit.
     
  2. Ya ever hooked kings on the fly?? If ya had.. you'd already have a big black tube fly tied on your tippet...

  3. Kings are tough on the fly, I like black and gold and green works well too. That's what I used to get them on when I fished gear but don't anymore.
     
  4. For better or worse all my salmon have fallen to either bent metal or cut-plug herring. I've never really tried.

  6. After reading the report on the Seattle locks, the fish count is down about 2K from projections. Given the numbers, that is quite a bit.

    Perhaps the Columbia will be the salvation of the species.

    I too, must confess that cut plug herring behind a Lure Jensen Dodger is my claim to King Salmon fame.

    I did accidently snag a Sockeye on the Babine River some years ago.
    I was targeting Old Iron head and this Sockeye decided he didn't like my fly. That was interesting for the better part of fifteen minurtes.
