The salmon fishing off the western beaches of Whidbey Island has still been good with good numbers of coho being landed every day. Though the fishing hasn't been as good as last years banner season, the fishing has at least been consistant. Anglers are throwing Rotators of Buzz Bombs in a variety of colors with most anglers favoring chartreuse tones. Many are also adding small micro or mini squid patterns over their hook in a variety of colors for a tad bit more of enhancement.
We had a couple of the regulars that were at Bush Point this morning and managed to catch three in a short time and were here at the shop just after we opened to restock their tackle selection. They said that they also saw a good number of fish landed by the anglers around them with many catching their limits and leaving quite early.
This fishery should be good for at least the next couple of weeks then slow down toward the end of October, though there will bean occasional coho caught into December.
