We found the same thing btree. We fished Friday and Saturday both tides with respectful results, Sunday morning was good but that evening's high tide with all of the flotsom was a write off. Thankfully we hooked into a fish on Monday morning before getting on the road. Funny how its turns on and off up there. My flourescent green fuzzy fly seemed to work the best for me when the bite was on. What worked for you? You heading up for coho in September?
