A little rain please?
The salmon are coming, but not in a hurry, and the lack of rain, cold nights and bright sun has not made the bite any better.
My strategy has been mixed bagging it. Take the salmon and steelhead you can get in the morning and then give up and go dry fly fishing for trout.
The big trick to salmon fishing with a fly rod is to not be concerned about the salmon you are not catching.
That is, if a couple eat the fly, and 200 swim by it, then the point is a couple ate it.
Getting hung up on the ones that won’t bite is counter productive.
I’m looking forward to some rain, and getting these fish moving better, but the trout fishing is hard to beat in the mean time, and coming home dry is pretty awesome.

Lots of October Caddis coming off the Sol Duc yesterday. I bet those trout are looking up!
JOHNBOY. Rockin the beard. Hope he took that fish home to England in his carry on
He ate it right there on the river bank, like a god dammed grizzly bear, guts and all. Got it all over himself and didn’t wash for a week.
He has gone completely mad.
Made my day. Just seen this post. Hi Lee. Will you be in Forks next April? Cheers. John
I think he is planning on it John
