My fishing vacation started a little slow today ... Fished with my friend Damien, caught a couple of kings and lost a few other fish, including one brown trout. Clear, cold, and windy was not the weather condition I was hoping for, and it proved to lead to a difficult bite. Saw very few fish surfacing. It appears the king salmon run is 90% complete, and those fish that are still "catchable" are nearing the spawn and the ensuing death that is imminent.
I'll be back at it tomorrow, hoping to chase down some browns. They appear to be moving into the marinas as I saw them in numerous locations today following crank baits. A slight weather change is being predicted, including rain in the afternoon ... and rain certainly can't hurt at this point.
