Make sure you use barbless hooks and are very careful with these delicate beauties.
Cutts take jigs and you can find great ones through either First Cast Jigs or Silent Approach Jigs
Put a little sandshrimp tail on, or crawdad tail. CANDY!
It's a heck of a lot of fun with light gear. Look for them in the same places you would find steelies in the winter, or summer.
On a fly, I find them in the shallower riffles too, with a Bordens special or a Spruce fly.

Searun cutthroats will take jigs either fished by themselves or tipped with bait. As Jenny mentioned, it's a good idea to crimp the barb too. Searuns will inhale any bait you put in front of them so be careful not to feed the fish. The cutts are plentiful right now and will continue to be right up until the heavy rains in the fall.

This is just a catch and release fishery, right?

Absolutely catch & release on the Wilson river for searuns. One of the best moves the ODFW has made in my opinion. In the last two years I've seen the numbers and size of the cutts increase dramaticly.

Although I agree that ODFW did good making non-finclipped trout on coastal streams C&R only, I was dismayed over their decision to allow a harvest of two per day from the Salmon River south this year. I was also less than happy that the harvest size was set at six inches and better. This small of size could allow the inadvertent harvest of some of the larger Steelhead and Chinook smolts.

I think that using barbless hooks for any C&R fishing is a great idea. Too bad ODFW bumper their collective heads and concluded that barbless hooks did not improve the hook mortality rate for released fish. Thats one of the reasons why barbless hook restrictions were relaxed in inland Oregon waters.
