    Default Smitty's Cove in Whittier Question

    Anyone have a rough idea when the silver will start arriving here? I fished here in '08 but haven't been back since. I wanna take my wife here. Thanks in advance.

    I recall catching silvers there when the first snow started to fly. Herring under a bobber. Don't know about earlier than that.

    In 08 I was catching them by snagging in mid August. I was just wondering if they came sooner.

    I seem to remember late Aug being the begining n then well into Sept. Although I was there this past week n saw 2 good size "Silvers" chasing herring or fry around (unconfirmed cause I didn't catch em lol). Nice to see but not hot by no means.

    There's probably a few trickling in now, but I'd guess another couple of weeks before you see any catchable numbers. I've always done the best in September, but the last few years seem to have missed them entirely so that may be too late now.
