After a long spring the cutthroat have finally come into Puget Sound in bigger numbers. We are still seeing smaller than average fish right now but the big guys are soon to be had. The ever popular chum salmon hatch was per usual and cutthroat were feeding on a variety of patterns. We are still loving the Tak’s Mini Minnow.
Looking forward, June provides excellent cutthroat fishing. It is the major start of massive feeding for the returning fish. Look for fish of all sizes to be around on most beaches. The north sound will be the last area to get the numbers.
June-September is hands down the best time to be chasing cutthroat. June is almost fully booked with some dates left through August.
We know that there are many different ways to fish for Puget Sound cutthroat and we all have our favorite gear to do so. We cannot stress the importance of fly line selection. If you have not tried a full intermediate sinking line such as the Scientific Anglers Streamer Express Clear Tip or the Rio Outbound Short, do yourself a favor and pick one up. We have plenty of lines from a variety of companies for you all to use/demo when you come out with us. You can make your own decision on what line works best for you.
Thank you to all for the support this summer and we look forward to meeting the new anglers.
