We’ve been having some great Chinook and Coho fishing already in Puget Sound!  More options open up in July!  This could be shaping up to be a banner year for Seattle fishing. 

Kings and Coho in Seattle!

Posted: June 13, 2017 in Uncategorized

Ling Cod season is winding down, and salmon fishing is heating up!  We have some good chinook fishing happening now!  More options come in July.

I hope everyone is having a pleasant Holiday season, and ready for 2016!  Fishing in the Seattle area has been up and down with mid season closures in parts of Puget Sound.  We had some good fishing in October in the central part of the Sound, and hope for a possible opener in MA 9, January 16.  Winter crabbing was great when the weather cooperated.  We had a feast on Christmas Eve.  Looking forward to Steelhead fishing on the Olympic Peninsula rivers.  And further on to Spring Chinook.  Parts of the Greasy Spoon gang made it out for Tuna in late October.  We had amazing seas and a period of wide open fishing.  Happy New Year and tight lines!

Opening day for Chinook tomorrow!!  Many a soul will lose sleep tonight planning and scheming where to be????  My best advice is to fish deep!  Look for bait in the 120-240′ depths.  Fish on the bottom, 120-280′ on downriggers!! Plugs, spoons, hootchies have been producing well.  Take a peek at heavy afternoon incoming tides!!  Could be a massive bite on incoming in  afternoon in Point no Point and Pilot point areas !!

Great fishing continues in Ma 10. Limits have been the norm, with some big fish in the mix. 30-60′ have been my best depths. White flashers and hootchies have produced best.

Peck Peck was pounding the pipes at 4:50am. No need to set my alarm clock until I get more BB’s.

Lots of options for fishing on tap. Ling Cod, Spring Chinook and Halibut fishing are all in full swing. Last weeks Salmon fishing on the Olympic Peninsula was good, a few Summer Steelhead were in the mix as well. Lingcod fishing continues to be outstanding, limits of fish for the boat have been the norm. We are currently offering daily trips for Ling Cod, with Seattle and Bainbridge departures. Spring Chinook trips are based in Forks Washington, and will continue through June.

Usually I’m up before the birds, but my arch nemesis “peck peck” the Hairy Woodpecker has resorted to Gorilla tactics. I enjoy watching the Woodpeckers. We have quite a few, Pileated, Hairy, and the Flickers. Little “peck peck” is starting to ware on our last nerves. I am usually up around 4:30 am, lately “peck peck” is exactly 5 minutes before the alarm clock. What gives? And even worse now he just doesn’t go away. I pound on the wall and he mocks me with perfect beat. I throw gravel at him, and he just digs in and waits for the shelling to subside. I have been studying up on some local methods for deterring Peck Peck. One is to hang shiny objects, like handing an aspiring drummer a Hi Hat and Symbols. The other was building a house for him, no way. Im going to put my moms Ferrel cat Mr Becket in a harness and hang him up in the eves for a day, or night. This is war Peck Peck!

Winter steelhead fishing has been very good on the Olympic peninsula rivers.  We have been targeting hatchery steelhead in the Hoh and Bogachiel rivers with great success.  Side drifting, float fishing, fly fishing have all produced well.

Winter king salmon fishing (blackmouth). Has been very good at times in marine area 10.  Flashers and spoons fished in and around the bait has been producing some good  Blackmouth.

  Salmon season on the Olympic Peninsula rivers has been fair to good at times.  We have been targeting the Hoh River and Bogachiel for a mix of Coho, Chinook and a few Steelhead are starting their journeys up the rivers.  We have been hitting good numbers of salmon on the www.wickedlures.com.  These little neutral weighted spinners are great for getting down in the fish zone and enticing the fish.  Steelhead will be showing with force over the next few months,  The hatchery run will peak in December.  Bait divers with sand shrimp or floats and shrimp, can be the ticket when searching for these fish.  We will be booking trips for these fish over the next month.

  I returned last week from another trip up in to the northern parts of British Columbia.  We fished hard for 10 days and found many willing steelhead, some very large fish as well.  The weather could not have been more perfect. 

A nice hen
