June has been a busy month so far for us here at OPO. With spring chinook winding down, the June stream opener brought us some great opportunity.
First and foremost I took a short much needed break and drove the 12 hours to Montana for some brown trout fishing. I’d been waiting to 10 years to see a salmon fly hatch, and while the weather through the large numbers of hatchers off, I did find a few and just as cool was finding the trout that ate them!
River cutthroats has been Hot and will only get better through out the summer and peak in early fall. These fish are hungry and happy to eat flies. Add that with a side of sunshine, a scenic float, Very Very minimal (if any) pressure and this makes July-Sept prime time to be on the water, if you’re interested we have some days open (full day float for two, $400). Fish average around 8″-12″ but we’ve taken multiple fish up to 22″ over the years!
We’re Offering walk in specials which are $100 off! And close to seattle! These streams offer some spectacular views and even better fishing! Full day walk in trips are $300 and are a great way to bend the rod and learn some new tricks.
The slat water Cutts have been eager to grab flies all through the spring. With the pink run last fall the fish in puget sound are enjoying a few extra meals swimming around at the moment and we’ve been taking full advantage of it! OPO has access to two private beaches along with beaches further away from the more popular guided beaches the shops in Seattle frequent.
