Yep, planning a trip to Fly Fish for Coho across the bar in Astoria. Anybody got some good fly patterns they want to share with me?

Looking for some info

Thanks

The last two years on the Rogue I have done well with red flashabou and a touch of green marabou tied on a #4 or #6 shank. Not sure if it will work for the area you are in though.

Tight lines

I think I would use an 8-weight rod, short leader, and a bare hook with a chunk of herring on it. Should be a blast!

I've done it myself and have used decievers with a blue topping. I use a full sinking line but I usually wait until we troll into a bunch of them and then whip out the fly rod for the frenzy! I've done great! What a blast!

Shifty,

When are you planning this trip for fly rod coho? I hope you are waiting until next summer. You would be hard pressed to find coho in the Astoria area this time of year.
