Skykomish Coho Fall 2016

Hooked only two Coho this Fall season on the Skykomish but I’m happy with that considering I only made two trips out. The first was on October 2nd on the Upper Snohomish and the last this past Sunday farther upstream on the Sky, about a mile downstream of Sultan.

Snohomish Coho

The second one got off nearly as quickly as it was on and the river couldn’t have been more different, running at about 6000cfs and only about a foot of visibility. We still were able to scout some promising new runs and get skunked on the old-reliables, Both my fish were hooked on a 50/50 BC Steel Pen-Tac spoon.

December’s Spoons

The spoons I'm packing tomorrow.  I'm primarily a float fisherman but do enjoy tossing spoons on occasion. Never with any luck
The spoons I’m packing tomorrow.  Primarily a float fisherman but I do enjoy tossing spoons every so often.  I’ve never caught a salmon or steelhead on a spoon in freshwater, but I do try every time I’m on the water and the current isn’t agreeable with float fishing.
