Well guys I heard last night the river came 1 ft so I dragged my ass down to my honey hole to find it true. Fourth cast in I hooked,rolled and lost around a 5 lb'er.About ten mins later I hit paydirt bringing in the biggest coho of this season for me. A nice 8lb doe that put up a beauty of a fight and tasted like gold on the new BBQ tonight. IT aint over yet fellas! With all of todays rain I'm sure she up again!

AAAYYUUUUP!
They become a little more scarce once the drought coditions start but then you can still have a good shot at them at the mouth and maybe even hook into a spring or two.............Summer steel too!
I fish the Cap almost daily, so I've put my time in for sure!

The term northern has different definitions to different anglers. Originally the term was applied to races of coho from northern streams and rivers that were over 20 lbs. The term has also been used in Southern locales to describe coho that run later in the season because they are larger than the previous coho in the system. The truth is that these fish are larger only because they have spent the extra month or two stocking up on the good ocean groceries that are available in the late summer. It may also be true that they have spent that extra time in the north (Gulf of Alaska) where the the nutrient biomass generates massive amounts of available food stuffs for these fish and they can gorge themselves. Conversion ratios (food consumed/weight gained) are extremely high in these late run fish as well.

I was out today for a good part of the day and was into 7 fish all in the 3lb range.My buddy hooked and lost a spring yesterday too!It's amazing that we have tthese conditions right now! You couldn't ask for better for coho's in the Cap

Best fishing is usually the first light to just after 12 noon.I would say your best net would be to get the the cable pool and start there and work your way down. Talk to other guys who are out and feel free to ask around about where to go . There will be enough guys going out that you'll see where to go.Now is a good time to be fishing as river conditions are perfect and the fish are biting and you may hook into some summer steel too.They've started there movement too.Roe and blades dudue
