Although the coho fishery is tapering off, the rain for the last couple of days will most likely bring a late wave of coho into the local rivers. So don’t put away your coho tackle yet. I have witnessed fishermen catching chrome coho into the first week of January when fishing for steelhead.
This is also a great time to fish for trout (ie. cutthroat trout, bull trout, and rainbow trout) with egg patterns and flesh flies. These fish will be gorging on salmon eggs and decaying salmon flesh, fattening up for the winter.
The winter steelhead fishing is just around the corner. Check out our Pacific angler blog for the latest reports on this favorite winter fishery. The Pacific Angler staff has been staying up late tying flies and rigging worms in anticipation.
Please feel free to visit the store to chat to the boys about fishing opportunities, the most effective methods, and the latest gear that will get you hooked up.
See you on the water!
