Saltwater Fishing, Camano Island (Host - Matt Moore)

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 early fall. Utsalady Bay will be the place where we will fish for feisty sea-run cutthroat.

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 in waterproof container
  • Sun Screen and Rain Gear
  • Pad and pencil for note taking

Food & Beverages:

  • Bring your own snacks for when you're fishing
  • Matt Moore, our host, has lots of chairs for sitting around for lunch


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.
