Salmon are in..

August 18, 2013

Hi All

There are a few King Salmon around. Conditions are poor..Low clear, bright and sunny...The Salmon are trickling up the system and there isn't any huge #s around but if you want to give it a try, you can catch a few. I was 2 for 5 with Johnny Matson and Camron his daughter and  1 for 1 today with clients Tom and his wife. Biggest diffrence is it was 42 deg up to low 70's. on the 15th. in the a.m. and 52 deg this a.m. with highs in the mid 80's by noon today. Plus on the 15th. the peir head was 40 deg and more fish were on the move and around the harbor... So things change day to day....Some rain would be great, like 3-5" would be perfect..But here we are again waiting for rain to bring us a big push and better conditions for casting lures... The fish are big.. One of Johnny's fish was 22 lb. male and the hen we caught today was 20 lbs. Johnny had the last fish of the scout mission spool him removing all 300-400 ' of all his braid and backing. In other words these fish are very big on average.. Sorry no picture of Johnny's fish there are on his camera..Trout fishing is still good/ average..Pressure on the river is starting to increase but it isn't crazy by any means yet. Be nice and give people plenty of space to fish and we'll all have a great Salmon season. My Tue. ,Wed. cancelled so I'm open every day this week Mon. -Fri. if you get the itch to do a half day a.m. Salmon mission give me a call..

Tight lines
