1 in a thousand
When you fish a big tailwater for trout in the rocky mountains you guide might tell you proudly, “we got 5000 trout per mile in here” and he is probably telling the truth, but this does not cause you to believe that since you are floating 5 miles you will have a 25,000 fish day, or even a 100 fish day, or even a 25 fish day. In fact, on most good trout streams most folks are happy with a dozen or so nice trout, and should be, cause that’s a great day.
The trick with OP coho is keeping your eye on that ball. Lets try and land a few 10 to 15 pound chromers and not worry about all the fish your aren’t catching. It can be hard, sometimes there are many hundreds of of big chrome fish right in front of you, where you can see them, and it seems like they are all having a contest to see who can bite your fly the least.
Don’t worry about it, some will bite, sooner or later, and when they do it will be more than worth while.
