Hi Guys, I've been lurking for a while and this is my first post. I started fishing Washington 20 years ago with a focus on fly fishing and gradually moved over to gear fishing. Recently, i have been gravitating back to fly fishing and found my self here. I sure do appreciate all the knowledge on this site. I was on a PS river yesterday that has pinks coming in. The lower portion was heavily trafficked so I made my way up river. I found a section of water that was swarming with pinks. They were bright and they were everywhere, in the soft water and in the rifles, along the bank and right next to the boat. I had someone with me that had never caught a salmon on a fly rod and thought to myself, today will be his day. They were porpoising on the water and I do not know why they do this, any opinions here? Guess what, no takers, no line bumps other than fish running into the indicator on the surface. We threw a variety of flies, mostly with pink, some weighted for jiggy action, we used floating line, sink tip, intermediate sink. Further up river we came across some guys that caught 3 on a blue fox. I have never had a problem catching pinks before, why did this happen, Why?
