Put in at Sailor bar at 0700 and floated to Discover on my kayak.

Threw swim baits and trolled Yoshuri the entire day for one hit. Saw some hog that wanted nothing to do with what I was offering.

Also did not see one salmon. Was a beautiful paddle though

I was out on Saturday morning from 8am-2pm. Started at Watt and landed at Discovery.

Contrary to your report, we saw 2 large salmon swimming up river from Guy West as well as a few striper.

Didn't catch anything though!! We were tossing all sorts of lures and even soaked some sardine for the stipers with no luck. Pulling off for lunch, we continued to bank fish and still, no bites. Must have been a little too late in the day.

Talking to some other boats, we heard a total of 4 stripers being caught between 3 boats.
