I had the opportunity to troll bucktail flies out of Pacific City with friends a few days ago.

We fished from about 0630 to 1300 hrs – hooking 9 silvers, and brought 3 to hand. Two were wild fish released from barbless hooks, one was a hatchery fish put in the box by friend Ed Bowles.

Headed to the salmon grounds.

It was my turn to get a fly line destroyed in the prop. Last week it was Rob Perkin’s misfortune. Oh well that’s how it goes.

overall we had a very nice day. By the way the bass were there but not on the bite to the extent we usually find them. Still, we managed to catch a few to finish out the day.

Our one hatchery coho had been feeding on “crab spawn.”

    Hey Josh – I’m not sure about the regulations but the silvers should still be there and considerably larger too. Check the latest regulations with the ODFW office in Tillamook or their website close to your visit. Hope you have a great time in PC. JN
