The coho salmon season in the Pacific NW is one of my favorite times of the year. I even have an app on my PC that counts down to the opening day for one of my favorite fishing areas. The other week, despite suspicions that the fish were not running yet, I scouted out the area on the opening day.
The fish were few and far between; I only managed to catch one! Even though it was small at around 6 pounds, she fought hard and was worthy of being my first coho salmon of 2013! The coho run will only get better as we approach September. I’m looking forward to another great coho season.
