First time angler Kirill Perfilev of Bremerton Washington lands his first Coho of the year. New to the area young Perfilev joined friends and family for a day of fishing on the Quilcene. As school after school of Chum went swimming by with only a few silvers to be seen, Perfilev never lost hope. cast after case until finally he lands this little beauty.
Other anglers we having success as well but the action was fairly slow due to huge Chum numbers in the river which are not allowed to be retained. Although the Quilcene river opened late this year the Coho fishing is just now starting to pick up. Once this for sure after today young Kirill is hooked for life.
