Weather is hot and so is the fishing. Rainbows up to 6 lbs and tons of small salmon up to about 2 lbs. Trolling about 30-45 feet down. Big springs and the branch loaded up with rainbows flies and jigs on light tackle.

Thanks for posting. Just wondering, is this info you've heard through the grapevine or first hand experience? I was there Aug 11-14 and scratched up a few fish, but sounds like the bite has improved considerably.

First hand I've been averaging around 20-25 fish per trip catch and release.  I've been running sling blade flasher and either a gulp minnow, or nightcrawler or a pond smelt fly but the worm is definitely the most consistent.

20-25 per day, Hell yea! Good for you, that's getting into Clayman territory/numbers. Thanks again for sharing, now I have to figure out how to get the WAF points to make a trip happen.

Hey there nosoup, I will be up there Saturday morning launching from Westwood beach as usual. Look for a dune pro angler.

Sounds good!  I will keep that in mind, but if I make it up, it will most likely be Sunday when it's suppose to be a little cooler.

There's a good chance I will be up there that weekend too.   :smt003
