Hello,
I joined the group to try and get some information. I am currently not a boat owner or live in Washington but, grew up there in the 40's thru early 60's....then my parents moved us to Calif.
My parents moved back up to Poulsbo and lived in the home on the point where the Casino now is but sold before the casino was built. I have always loved the Puget Sound Area. I hope nobody takes this request negatively but:
We are coming up to rent a home on Agate Pass for my 60th birthday in June and was was wondering if anybody has any information on fishing from shore and claming on Agate Pass. From what I have come across is most is fly fishing but since I do not really fly fish, is there any other possibilities. I know I can use spinning gear to fish fly's using clear bobbers that fill with water...or are there other ways with bait? I know the current thru the pass is moving pretty good but that can be handled accordingly...if it is worth it.
Any information is appreciated.
Thanx and Regards,
Rich

The regulations for agate pass are a little wierd about when it is open to fish, but I believe it is open by June. Also be aware that all Searun cutthroat have to be released. With that said your best bet is using a spinning rod and fishing small to medium size spinners off the beach for cutthroat and larger spiinners, hoochies (plastic squid), buzz bombs, and cut plugs for salmon.

Best of luck

Thanks for the information...with what I have looked into it is obvious that most shore fishing is fly fishing..which I was not exposed to very much so it has mostly been bait and lures..haved done some fly with spinning using a clear float filled with a little water for weight.
Any advise on line weight..8-10 lb test? I know the current running thru Agate is a little strong but i guess wait till close to the change..
Any info on claming there??
Regards,
Rich
