Out back nomoco last hour of light. Found some big strong blues 8-12 lb average with one 14lber. All on pencil poppers and poppers. Great night my arms feel like jelly. Didn't notice any bait but they were there and hungry tonight.

Nice Bay
Are those true bows or a steelhead strain?
Quality fish there

There are steelheads mixed in but it's just hard to single one out, your not going to know until you get them in.

I was using my 9'6" noodle rod with 6-10 lb test mono. My buds all have fly rods, but we're not using flys, just a few splits with a salmon egg. They're heading up the river to spawn so they're not eating. So basically find the fish lob it out there lift the rod and hope you get it in the mouth then you can keep it if you snag it anywhere else it's got to go back.

Since the coming weekend is booked with all kinds of stuff and fishing is out question I took a day off yesterday and fish RB on the kayak. Started early...I was on the water by 6am until 2pm...kind of foggy day, with no wind and water was like oil in the morning...as I was pedaling out I saw some swirls around me... it seems that blues are about to erupt any moment...water temps were still in low 50ies...there were fish around but not close to the abundance I was marking last time...ended up with 5 bass...3 keepers...2x32" and 1-29"...shorts were at 24" and 27"...the interesting part was that all but one fish were caught on 1.5oz bucktail with white pork rind while trolling...the last fish was caught on light rod with x-rap...that fish hit while I was on my way back in shallow water and it took out a lots of line....btw, there were a lot of kayakers our for midweek...probably because the forecast is calling for a windy weekend...
