YES the out flow winds and off shore northwesterly kept most fishers inside Nootka & Esperanza the last week of July. BUT THAT WAS OK! Simultaneous with the wind coming up the schools of Springs, Chinook, Kings moved inside the Sound and Inlet. Yes limits of 15 to 27lb Chinook were in the majority the norm. Early morning and late evening flood tides seem to be producing the best. Fishing anchovies on one side and a glow 4in. coyote or hoochie on the other side is the scoring combo. Esperanza Hot Spots- Rosa Harbour, Double Is., Pin Rks. & the log dump east of Garden Pt. Nootka Hot Spots- Coopte Pt., Hoiss Pt, San Carlos Pt. west to the log dump & Three Bay area MORE GOOD NEWS!!! The winds are going to lay down Sunday night so by Tuesday it will be very fishable on the outside. Esperanza- 4 mile reef, the Pins, the “T” & the Highway will all be Producers. Nootka- Bajo, Beano Ck. & the Highway will light up again.
