Well here is a quick report from the stave. Got there this morning after dropping my son off at school and picking up my brother to find that the area we wanted to fish was pretty quiet with fishermen which was perfect. I put on my new fly pattern for this year and a few casts later I got a nice hatchery doe weighting at just over 7lbs. I also got a coho jack which I released and a nice buck chum also released. This was my brothers first day with the fly and he lost a chum. Since he brought his drift gear as well I decided to take him to a spot that I know almost no one goes to. And when we got there I was right. There was no one there. I rigged him up with a purple and pink jig and he had a fish on every drift. They hammered them so hard he hardly had to set the hook. So once he was doing fine I put on my chum fly and I too was getting fish. All female too. So I ended up with my hatchery coho and 2 chrome female chums. He ended up with 2 chrome female chum as well. Here is a picture of the coho. Taken on my cell phone.
