.....Horrible. Crossed a very pleasant bar and discovered icky brown water everywhere. We ran out to 200-235 feet thinking that is where the cohos would be (based on SST water temps map). Nada. Zip. Zilch. Not ever a driveby or a takedown. No other boats in the area. Ran in to 160-140 feet and still had no result. Baits were coyote spoons, hoocies, etc. The usual. Heard a report that they were 15 miles north but that was a little to far to run for us. Very few boats in the area and no nets flying. Does anyone know if this is the "dead zone" water? That brown water was weird. Or maybe the cohos have all moved north toward the mouth of the Columbia? :shrug: Not used to being skunked in the big blue for cohos. :confused:.

I don't think it's dead zone water. Did you happen to notice the water temp?
First hand reports I got were that the Coho were 20+ miles off-shore. On Saturday there were several boats coming to port that spent all day salmon fishing with the same results you had....nothing. The water temps were 49-50 degrees which is a little cool.
