Outing Host:  Matt Moore

Registration Fee:  No charge

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 the first of our three saltwater outings. Utsalady Bay will be the place where we will fish for feisty resident coho salmon, sea-run cutthroat and maybe a late pink. 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. 
Food & Beverages:

  • Bring your own snacks for when you're fishing
  • Depending on the size of the group we might be able to grill burgers, brats, veggies or whatever.

What to Bring:

  • Washington saltwater fishing license and a catch card.
  • 6 or 7 weight rod
  • Reel with at least 50 yards of backing
  • Weight-forward floating line with nine foot 2x or 3x leader
  • Extra leaders or leader material (0 to 3x sizes)
  • Pink flies including Cerise Comet (size 4), Pink Woolly Bugger (size 4), Pink Flashabou Comet (size 4), Clousers, and Poppers.
  • PFD is always recommended for wading and riding in boats.
  • Vest, hat and glasses (with strap)
  • Stripping basket (if you have one).
  • Camera in waterproof container
  •  Sun Screen and Rain Gear
  • Pad and pencil for note taking
  • Snacks in Ziplock bag in your vest
  • We have lots of chairs for sitting around for lunch


  • Directions will be provided to registered attendees prior to the outing. I'd like to meet with everyone a week before we go to find out what folks would like to do, time, fishing and food.
