Hit the water Sat morning expecting to find temps went deep after the BIG blow on Fri. Much to our surprise they were still hangin around 100'- So we set up in 120' running the usual 2 spoon -2 fly program - not long and the first salmon was in the net- 105' down on white PT w/ hammer fly- didn't get a chance to put it back downand another rod was thumping away- this was on a spoon run back 30' down 95' - things were startin off great! The radio was goin nutz! I think every boat w/in 2 miles was doin fish at the same rate. After the 1st hour things settled a bit for a steady 2-3 hits per hour- as the day went on the kings slowed but the bts took over. Down speed was best 2-2.5-

I ran dipsys but they really just got in the way- Everytime I ran them the riggers would go- so I ended up puttin them away- some guys on the radio were hitting them on wires out 270 w/ spin drs/mirage fly.
