I was fishing chapman creek a couple weeks ago and hooked a spring and saw some flyguys beach some coho. U can see the fish moving in and around before the tide fills the creek so low tide is a good time to start. there is beach fishing for coho and spring there too on either sides of the creek mouth. U should try large koho spoon or vibrex spinners.

I have fished Chapman many times. It will produce Coho right now and some springs. There is a large sandbar right at the mouth. It you fish at low slack you will have better luck and better access. You can also park at the park by the bridge and follow the trail into the forest. As you move along the river you will come to the odd nice hole. There aren't many but they will produce with a small wool presentation. I usuall fish the first hole you come to. Its about a 4 or 5 minute walk in. It will be on the right side, just befor the first steep hill along the path. You can walk along way an that pathand find some good spots.

There is a htchery along there as well


Good luck
