Sea Run Myth Revealed for 2010

One of the myths my fellow colleagues of chasing sea runs has been; When do sea runs show up in our coastal streams? Members of the Men’s Technical Council (old guys who have fished together for decades) have been jacking me around for many years with this: “It’s all about the 4th of July, Lou.” I fell for this myth many times in my early years of chasing sea runs. ” O” dark thirty departures, casting all morning, bush whacking blackberries, and napping the remainder of the day. Ugh! So, when challenged this July with “they are in!” I held my ground….nope, no way was I going in early July. I went on July 30. Look who showed up:

It was not a chromer, he had been in there a while…..maybe since the 4th of July? The conditions were perfect, some drizzle in the early morning hours, followed with a nice low overcast.:

Native cuts were abundant, going nuts with a massive midge hatch. It was fun to watch and enjoy the awakening of the sea run season for 2010.

Our coastal streams should see this special fishery get going as we get some decent cloud cover on the coast range. Hey, I am all for sunny days, but when it’s time for sea runs….things get wacky! The Borden Special was the fly of the day and if your paying attention….Jay is telling/showing you everything else!

I’m very happy with the service and the quality and i recommend your website to my friends whenever i get the chance. ? Many rogue pharmacies are happy to bypass a doctor’s prescription in order to win your business.

    Guess we’ll have to fish twice as hard this month to make up for all the lost time. I’ll row, you fish.

    They do come in July 4th. But not where we fish. Because of your post, I think I’ll check out the Siuslaw in the next few days, but I’ll be catching crawfish. I will bring some Bordens and Green Spruces and practice casting into the blinding sun for naught.
