We fished the upper Skagit river last week targeting the early run coho with moderate success, as there still is a massive pink salmon presence up there making it challenging to get your gear past the bio mass of Humpy’s. The pinks’ are a good problem to have in some ways, as it keeps the interest peaked in between coho bites. Most of our silvers came from the upper holes near the Cascade river, we caught them on twitched jigs, eggs under floats, and vibrax spinners with squid skirts. I’d expect the coho fishing to improve over the next 30 days as the pinks begin to filter out and the bulk of coho run shows up.
