Default Prince of Wales Island in July

Heading with my wife and some good friends to Prince of Wales Island in mid-July for that island's early-season silver run.

Anyone fished there? If so, what were your most productive flies?

I'm currently in a tying mode for all of the opportunities we'll find.

Kelly: That should be one heck of a trip. I have never fished or hunted there so I can't provide much help.

Here is an old post, not much info, but you might try sending him a pm to see what he knows:

Here is another thread, send him a pm also:

Here is another, not much info, but a little:

I've never been down there but would expect the same flies I'd use here to be fine there. Those can run the gambit from standard ties like Skykomish to bigger colorful stuff tied on shanks. I'll try to remember to post some pictures of patterns later tonight. I don't have a lot because I have been lax in documenting the stuff I make.

These have been the ticket here for the past 2 seasons.

I make variations but the blue / pink cross seems to move them well.
