It`s official. We are done with the Fall Salmon season. It started off with a “Bang”! And quit, just as fast as it started. Early rains flooded the river with fish! All up and down the coast. Some of the best we have seen in a while. But, with the early rain, most of the fish came in, so the late run stopped in an instant. So, we called it off two weeks earlier than normal. Even still, the up and coming Steelhead season, looks to be really good all over. Banner Coho years are the indicator. Hoping fishermen spread around the state, and the weather cooperates for us. Right now, we are in a deep freeze.
As it stands, we are going “Old School”…The traditional Thanksgiving Day start to winter Steelhead season.
We rarely give the numbers of the fish we catch, but we have had some questions from others. So, here you go! Believe it or not, but numbers do not lie, and we take very accurate stats…Fall Kings for 2011. We landed 381 total. Fall Kings for the fall of 2012. We landed 383. For this year, the fall of 2013, We hooked 472 Chinooks, and landed 447 total…
Have a wonderful Holiday, be safe, and eat and drink, until you can`t feel feelings.
