Trip Leaders:  Matt Moore and David Williams

Fishing the salt from the beach is one of the fastest growing facets of fly fishing because Puget Sound is blessed with so many miles of beach and so many willing fish. This year the NFA will meet on Camano Island for our annual saltwater outing. Utsalady Bay will be the place where we will fish for feisty resident coho salmon, sea-run cutthroat and maybe a late pink. There is no outing fee, do bring some snacks for while you're out. Depending on the size of the group we can grill after, burgers, brats and veggies or what ever.  We do have a house and boat on the beach so I can take small groups to near by beaches as
sea-runs move a lot.
