anybody know where some good areas are to fish off shore (ocean) for some cutthroat?

I tied up some nice rolled muddlers and workin on some other stickleback patterns adn I want to fishem!

Actually attempted a mouse pattern today for bass...I think I'll just buy bass flies. it was a gongshow! Used half my deer hair just trying to get it on right...

I have never caught a fish on a rolled muddler....ever. EVER. I'm sure they work, but I've never had succes with them. One fly I find really good for SRC is a simple sparsley tied bucktail. Black thread base, about six strands of white and blue (so about three each) mixed and then a yellow wing of about 5 strands with 3 strands of Krystal flash inbetween. Remember, tie your patterns sparse, and then half it. Yellow is a good colour in the ocean (don't know why, but it is). Not to advert another forum, but the guys at washingtonflyfishing.com know their stuff when it comes to SRC. As for here, the only spot I fish for them are a secret trib of the Nic and at Pt. Roberts, Washington.

thanks for the advice

I think this is one of the things I won't ever do until I hook up with a fishin buddy who has done it a few times and can show me the ropes. Or perhaps if I happen to be in a good area by chance on a holiday.

I was on the oyster a few years ago and nailed a 5.5 lb on a #14 gray fox in late august. I really had no clue what I was doing-coming from kamloops stillwaters to river fishing (never got into the thompson river scene). but it was a gorgeous wild cutty. that memory is why I want to fish them again!

Does anyone now some creaks or small rivers that they run up that I could fly fish at or are they all in the pit??

Yeah, I do. Basically any creek or stream that connects to saltwater will hold them. The Nic, Little Campbell, etc. Just watch the regs and respect property and fish. '52 Buicks are killer for them in streams. Just use a simple indicator or my fav, "High-stick" nymphing. They are oportunistic feeders and will eat if they get the chance. The only problem is they are very elusive and can be there one day and gone the next.

Thanks I'll try that out.
