Checking in again. Anyone gettin' any resident silvers in the S. Sound yet?
just got back from blackmouth fishing in manchester, and there was smolts all over the shoreline, I dont know if the rains washed them down premature or what but they were pretty thick about 1 1/2 inches long. didn't have my fly rod but was probly a good day for it. all morning there was breaks in the surface in front of fuel depot, in where resident silvers are supposed to be thick later in the season.

I took my boat out today just to get back on the water since my surgery several months ago. Launced at 1230 to catch the change to flood. Stayed out for 3-hours. Ran around the South Sound a bit just to get back into handling the boat and letting the Merc feel its oats after being layed up. Blind casted to several of my favorite shorelines using a Clouser hoping for a few Silvers. Took one 14-incher off of Fox Island just North of Point Gibson. Never saw much in the way of birds working the surface or feeding activity on the surface; never saw much baitfish activity on the fish finder, either. All in all, a great first day back out on the water.
I think tomorrow I'll get serious about finding some fish.
Tom I live on Hamersley Inlet. We characteristicly have silvers, cutts, and blackmouth to fish in the later part of March. I fish the gravel bars on a fast tide.
