Fishing Report for July 31, 2019

Wednesday, July 31 2019

It seems like the Chinook fishing became more sketchy as the week wore on. 

There are still good results at Entrance, Grande to waterfall sometimes has tons of fish, but mostly undies and wild Coho, and the West side of Thrasher can be productive. 

At Entrance you can plumb the depths. 

The ridges in 70 to 100 feet of water hold fish, or going deep along the outside of Entrance Reef or in the Money Hole at 220 to 240 feet works also. 

Fishing West of Thrasher is producing at 120 to 180 feet. Rhys Davis teasers in green/chartreuse, spoons in Evil Eye, Killy MaGee, watermelon, or Pink Sink, or hoochies in T-Rex or Blue Meany are head turners. 

The great news if that Thrasher to the green can will open for retention on August 1st. 

This is my “go to” spot this time of year! 

 Jigging off the Fingers and Entrance has been off and on, also. Naturally, finding bait schools with salmon present is the key.

We’ve been catching quite a few Coho, but hatchery fish are in the huge minority! We’ve caught 25 or 30 Coho this year, and only kept 4 hatchery fish. 

Hopefully, they get their act together, and clip all the hatchery Coho in ensuing years!

Prawning went from great to mediocre this week. 

We actually caught about 125 per trap a week ago, this week the average is about 50. 

The size of the prawn is fabulous though, with no female spawners.

Good fishing!
