Beautiful Coho's hitting FCS

Blogger and FCS Slinger Doug Porter sent me a few of his fishing pictures today - Forever Fishing Washington State from a trip to the Elhwa River for early run Coho's.

Here's a Coho Salmon from the batch

Nice fish Doug. That 3/8oz Green and Gold Steelhead Armadillo looks like a F554.

The Elwha River is a 45-mile (72 km)-long river located on the Olympic Peninsula in the U.S. state of Washington. From its source at Elwha snow finger in the Olympic Range of Olympic National Park it flows generally north to the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Most of the river is contained within Olympic National Park. There are two dams on the river's lower course, both of which are scheduled to be removed.

Thanks for sending the pictures Doug!

John, the two dams on the River are being demolished as we speak, piece by piece. After our fall season ends on 11/15/11 the river will be closed to fishing for 5 years. The river will return to a 70 mile free flowing spawning ground for 5 species of salmon. The river only has 4 miles of free flow today. This is historic! Largest river restoration in the U.S. to date.

Those Coho's and their buddies will be swimmin' it up before you know it!
