Sound Fly Fishing

A Saltwater Guide Service - Seattle, Washington

May Report

05/16/2012

May fishing is in full swing. There are plenty of chum smolts left out there and the cutthroat are feeding like mad on them.  We have also had great success on a variety of other baitfish patterns. Another fly we will be giving a chuck is the Broke Back Minnow in olive/white from Spirit River you can pick them up at Pacific Fly Fishers. Pretty excited about this fly.

Eel grass is starting to grow and show up more and will continue to grow through summer. This provides cutthroat protection and an environment to rest and feed. A great example of eel grass being nonexistent to full fledge garden is Camano Island State Park, fun place to fish and learn the north end.

The south sound as always is best right now. Fishing is good and the tides are calming down.  We have talked to a few guys who have been out in hood Canal and have been crushing it. We don’t do much over there but would love to hear your reports.

Summer trips are filling up quick and seaplane trips with Kenmore Air are now full. Thank you to all who are participating with us in this cool adventure. September seaplane trips are booking fast as well, don’t miss out!

We will have a newsletter going out 6 times a year or so and you can stay updated on all we are doing by signing up on our website.

Happy hooking,

Ben Zander
