I was out with a buddy, fishing T10 on Saturday. No real luck, just dogs and a flounder (not much bigger than the anchovy) But I did come away with a question.

I am a relative newbie trying to learn by observation and listening. I observed that when working the edge of the self where water was about 100’-120', the sounder was marking fish throughout the water column. In deeper water outside the buoy there was relatively little showing on the sounder. I also noted that most boats, including a couple of charters, worked water well outside the buoy. They did not seem to be having any luck either but I assume there is a reason they concentrated outside.

Can one of you old salts help me understand?

This time of year when fishing for migrating chinook what appears on the depth sounder is not alway a good indication of fish or at least chinook. Most people fishing around there are fishing the drop off to three hundred feet but not fishing near the bottom. It's a good area as it where the current edges mix into each other. Any where with mixing current is a good place to start out there. However, when fishing around there I've always found it a crap shoot. There is no really good place for the fish to hold and you kind of have to get lucky and stumble upon some fish most of the time. The only trick I've learned is to always have one line shallow just under the fresh water from the river... on good fish finders it can sometime be seen but about thirty feet is right.
Just my :2cents:. Persistance is the keep then remeber the detail that may have got you the fish.
Have fun, Jason
