Number 1 choice by far- clouser. Blue, or purple over white.
Number 2 choice, wooley bugger/egg sucking leech purple/pink colour pattern
Number 3 choice is a crystal bugger, chartreuse
Mini jigs, christmas trees, copper leeches, hobo spey, squiddro, and even nymphed egg patterns work too although none are my cup of tea. Find a fly that moves through the water like a twitching jig and you'll catch coho with it. Swinging will occasionally work, stripping it through frog water is the way to go.

Sorry for the delayed response, work has been crazy. I did really well this season on 8-2 beaches but I fished almost every evening. Had to get a new catch card, no so lucky so far with fishing the rivers. I've seen quite a few fish caught but haven't been able to connect with any. Hoping to make it out to the Skagit again this weekend depending on water conditions.
