Silver salmon fishing has been what I would call “decent” since my last report. Some days we get into a good bite and limit out rather quickly and others we have to pick away at them all day long to get limits. The silvers seem to be a pound or two heavier this year and have been a blast on the mooching tackle.

There’s still a few king salmon in the 15 to 20 pound range mixed in with the silvers. Our guests this past week have caught a few on the outside of Noyes Island and also inside the islands while fishing for silvers. The trollers just got an opener for king salmon and apparently they have another 79,000 pounds to catch. We haven’t seen that many kings in close to the beach, but maybe they are getting them offshore. Perhaps we’ll see yet another push of kings before the summer is over??????????

We’ve been catching the usual assortment of bottomfish, including some nice chicken halibut, sea bass, ling cod, and yelloweye rockfish. There’s even a few nice halibut starting to show up in the islands now, which is a pleasent surprise.

We hosted yet another halibut enchilada night down on the pier last night and the good guys from Ram Construction in Bellingham, Washington contributed over $1,000 in cash money to the Craig High School wrestling team. Holy crap guys…you are amazing! All of us thank you so much.

So far this summer our guests and crew have raised approximately $4300 for these hard workin’ kids and we’ll probably host at least one more din-din down on the dock before we give the coaches wife a break. Thanks again Di!

Sorry no photos this week…I lost my little Nikon camera. Ouch!
