Puget Sound Silver Salmon

This year I learned about the magic of fishing for coho salmon in Puget Sound. The action started for me just after September 1st when my buddy, Mark, and I fished this point near the mouth of Hood Canal. I managed two good days of coho fishing this year in Hood Canal.
I used white, pink, and chartreuse clouser minnows tied on hook shanks with trailing hooks.  I tied a bunch of coho flies on tubes, but I'll have to wait until next year to see if they will really work. I also fished some top water sand lance tube flies and got some impressive boils, but no hookups.

Next year I plan to be fishing the salt by the end of July. Should be a great year for pinks and coho.


  1. Good for you James. I love seeing Silvers jump.

  2. This is very informative and reliable for future reference. You did a great job my friend.
