Fishing in the Pacific Northwest

nwjig paterol car cleaned upNot a lot to post with all the closures and restrictions we have seen this past 2 years. We have developed a new product targeting trollers for coho (when it’s open) and chinook.

It is a variation on a tube fly that can be used with a single or dual hook setup using 25-40 pound test leaders.

Visit the store to see the various selection under Salmon Trolling Flies.

Fall Coho Twitching Time

After a rather dry fall in the Pacific Northwest…………. we are finally getting our fall coho arrivals here in the islands. A bit on the smaller side in general this season, but still a blast to fish for.ralph coho9 2015

I’m not the only one Coho Fishing

While fishing for coho in the San Juan Islands we sometimes run into some rather ominous fishing competition. This is not a zoomed out photo, but rather  a hungry and curious orca whale moving in on the coho salmon we are trolling for off San Juan island. A joy to photograph and watch………… but the fishing is usually pretty spotty after they arrive in an area.

New Jig Believer

Twitching Jigs do the trick.

Here is a recent NW Jig lure client who tried a bit of twitching for coho this year in addition to his typical methods from past excursions.

He and his group found mixing it up with some ” twitching”  rounded out their arsenal.

Thanks for the feedback.NWJIG BLOG CLIENT MITCH
