Saltwater Fishing, Camano Island - Canceled

Camp Host: Matt Moore 

Date: April 26, 2020  

Registration Fee:  No Charge (day outing) 

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 in the spring for our first saltwater day outing.  Utsalady Bay will be the place where we will fish for feisty sea-run cutthroat.  Our host has a house and boat on the beach so he can take small groups to nearby beaches as sea-runs move a lot.

What to Bring for Fishing:

  • PFD is always recommended for wading and riding in boats
  • 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
  • Vest, hat and glasses (with strap)
  • Stripping basket (if you have one)
  • Camera
  • Sun screen and rain gear
  • Pad and pencil for note taking

Food & Beverages:

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


Directions will be provided to registered attendees prior to the outing.  Matt would like to talk with everyone a week before the outing to find out what folks would like to do, time, fishing and food.  

Cancellation Deadline:  Deadline for cancellation is April 23rd.  If you need to cancel, please contact the Outing Host.
