LingCod fishing is still going strong, only a few more days of this fishery. It has been a great season in Puget Sound for this tasty toothy critter. Salmon fishing has been good in MA 10 Catch and release area, and is showing some promise in MA 11 witch is open to retention. We have found most of our action on the bottom in 120-180′ of water. Spoons and flashers have produced best. I would expect things to really get going in the next few weeks.

  Fishing in the MA-10 bubble has been very good over the past week.  We have had some double digit mornings on King Salmon and a few nice Coho in the mix.  We have been catching most of our fish shallow, which makes for a great fight.  Flashers and Spoons have produced best for me fished at 50-70′ in 80-110′ of water.  Plugs have been producing as well, we fish these primarily on the bottom.  True that it is hard to release all these beautifull hatchery Chinook, I would rather catch fish and eat Burgers than to not fish at all.  This is a great sign for the upcoming retaining Salmon.

  In the past 4 trips we have landed 18 Chinook all but 1 were hatchery marked fish.

A double is always more funSome of the Kings are looking a little Fall like.

Ling Cod season ends on the 15th of June.  This has been a great fishery this year, some very good sized Lings have been landed over the past month.  Live bait has been producing the best action.  We have a few more days left, and some good tides to get them on.

  Catch and release fishing opened on the 1st of June in the north part of MA-10.  We have had some decent action for Blackmouth (chinook) and a few resident Coho.  The main part of the Salmon season gets going on the 1st of July with the opener for Coho retention, and then on the 16th for Chinook.  We should start seeing good numbers of Pink salmon around by the end of July.  Pink salmon arrive by the millions (2 mil) or so are expected back into Puget Sound watersheds this summer.  This is a great fishery for children and those looking for good action.  Pink salmon usually average 2-4lbs with bigger fish in the 5-8lb range.  The limit on Pinks is 4 per angler or a combination of 2 hatchery Chinook and 2 pinks, or 2 coho  and 2 pinks.

  Rivers are dropping in, and should be fishable by the weekend if not sooner.  I would expect some good fishing in the Sol Duc and Bogachiel rivers.   Side drifting eggs or prawn, Float fishing and backtrolling plugs or bait  all will get action. 

   On Puget Sound Winter Kings have moved in.   I have had very good action over the past few days around the south end of Bainbridge island.  Fishing flasher and spoons 10-15′ off the bottom in 80-130′ .  Lots of just sub legal fish 20-21″ , and a few very good sized 8-15lb fish.  Blackmouth must be hatchery clipped to retain.

  King Salmon action has been very good over the past week or so.  We have been releasing many Kings in MA 10.  Most of the fish have been hitting flashers and 3″ spoons fished at 80-110′ .   We chased them into Elliot bay this morning, where we can keep Kings Friday-Sunday.  King Salmon season opens next friday the 16th.  Coho fishing this year has been slow.  The Coho we are finding have been good size for this time of year. 

This morning in Elliot bay we caught 2 for 4 good fish on.

A nice king from the the bay

  June opens us up to more fishing option in the Seattle area.  Ling Cod fishing has been good over the past week, with some nice fish taken for our customers.  June 1st was the opener for Salmon fishing in MA 11.  This fishery is open to Chinook salmon retention.  This is usually a hit or miss fishery, yet the rewards can be great for those that are up to the challenge.  Ma 10 opened for catch and release fishing in the northern part of the Marine area.  This can be a very good fishery for King Salmon, with some of the larger fish of the season being landed.

 Salmon fishing has been great out on the Olympic Peninsula.  The Quileute river and Sol Duc rivers have been stuffed with Coho salmon.  Best lures have been spinners and spoons.  Some good action for winter blackmouth (kings) out in MA 10.  Jeff head had been a productive area prior to the wind.  I just got back from a 10 day trip in BC.  This has been an annual trip that never fails to impress.
