Default SRC Salt Action

Had a great day on the water with my buddy John from SoCal this past weekend. A dreary morning turned into a beautiful day with plenty of fish to be had. Mostly still snakey from the spawn but good numbers of fish around. Also had a few resident coho and blackmouth in the mix.
Ton of 2 in candle fish getting chased on the surface. Poppers were the fly of the day but i caught my best fish on subsurface flies.
Another great day in the PNW.

Is this something I can do out of a drift boat? Oars or an outboard (i have both.)

Mark- in Highschool my boat was built in an elective class, and i could drag it from the back of my truck, down the beach and row around. (This boat is now a flower planter)
You could certainly use a drift boat in the right day and chase cutties in the salt. Just watch your tides and weather. And if it is aluminum make sure you clean it really well.
Happy to point you in the right direction if you arent familiar with Puget Sound and what to look for.

Anyone willing to share a location in Oregon where you can fish for SRC in the salt/estuaries from a pontoon boat in Oregon? I am not looking for anyone to what rock to stand on - but general information from someone who has actually done it a time or two.

Hi Smartie, I'm new here, from Seattle, and row my boat out of Shilshole. Any suggestions within three or so miles of that location? Im a lifelong fly fisherman, just never tried SRC. I'm assuming Carkeek Park is my only option.

Not to answer for D3Smartie, but I’ve lived above Carkeek for 30+ years.
There are cutts to be caught there. I’ve also caught coho and blackmouth off the beach there.
I used to fish it all the time but probably haven’t fish there in 20+ years, even though the beach is a five minute walk from my house.
I just find myself driving to fish as there are much better places on the sound for cutts and coho.
Too many people At Carkeek on the beach for my liking and some strange individuals.
Out of a boat should be fine, just watch the winds as it is pretty exposed and you’ll be a good rowing distance from Shilshole.

what SF said is spot on. I myself travel far and wide to chase em. Havent loved the downtown or east side of the sound options compared to south sound or west side.

If the timing is right put in at the Sixth St. ramp in Tillamook at low slack
Ride the incoming tide upstream. Fish under overhangs and any where that
looks fishy. Best is an overcast day with your basic coastal drizzle.
Not really any good places to stand on dry land so limit your fluid intake if you know what I mean. Might even run into a random steelhead.
You can also do the same on the Wilson. Lower boat ramp just east of tillamook.
