What is it about twitching jigs for coho (silver) salmon? Why is this one of the fastest exploding Northwest methods? Pure coverage of water with a fun, involved technique quickly has made this technique very popular in short time.
In our Facebook Live posts we have discussed this method heavily.
Below are four videos dedicated to twitching jigs. They show numerous rivers being fished in Oregon and Washington using this technique.
We often use 1/2 oz and 3/8 oz jigs. Aero Twitching Jigs are our favorite for the pattern selections they offer.
Many rods will work for this technique, something that is lighter and has a fast tip is ideal, as too much softness in the tip can result in less successfuly hooked fish.
