Fishing Report for October 18, 2016

Chinook fishing has slowed a bit more recently. We fished extensively in the Grande through Whalebone area last week, and only caught undersized chinook. Clyde managed a couple of 8 to 10 pound feeder chinook off Neck Point, fishing at 70 to 110 feet in 120 feet of water. Best lures still include the Evil Eye spoons, T-Rex hoochie, or bait in the clear green scale Rhys Davis teaser.

Encounters with coho have slowed too. These huge rains are probably pushing a lot of the fish up the rivers, which is a good thing.

There is the occasional chum jumping, but I haven’t incidentally caught any of this species, as I was targeting chinook.

Prawning is good off the Flat Tops. Try tuna cat food fished on the 350 foot contour for best results.

Good fishing!
