The Slaughter Continues!!!

I slept in again, despite my alarm going off twice before 0500, and didn't arrive at Riffe (the fishing bridge) until 1010. At 1025 I was walking out with my limit of coho.

It's the same story; 1/4 oz weight, 2'-3' leader, salad shrimp on a #6 hook. The fish are biting pretty light, but they're everywhere. They seem to be up a bit higher in the water column, so when you drop it off the bridge I don't let out too much line. I've even had a few bit right at the surface when I real in to check bait, along with a bunch chasing my bare hook when my bait gets stolen.

The size has varied day to day. Anywhere from 6"-18"

Is that raw shrimp or cooked? Thanks for the report

cooked shrimp, the "oregon shrimp meat" you get from QFC or safeway. I see others using larger cooked shrimp though, and even worms

Nope, not really. I've caught 2 in the last week that had a couple, but the rest are worm free

Sounds like your slip bobber has been retired, for now?

FYI, I caught some at the dam on the 18th. They did not have worms in the gut either.
