May Fishing Report
Early May 2014 Pictures.
This time of year Chinook are typically in the 7-20 lb range. This past Saturday guests caught 5 good size Chinook all between 14-22 lbs. The forecast for this season's returns is quite attractive, and we are seeing the first of the large Chinook run come past. You can probably expect anywhere from 4-10 Chinook per trip right now if you are just catching Chinook. The weather is starting to get better as well, which makes it easier on us all.
There has been good fishing close to shore which is great news for those sensitive to swells. Fishing has been good at both Great Bear Rock and Sail Rock.
There are good numbers of Halibut showing up around Long Beach Bank, as well as some near the shore. The size range will be anywhere from 12-60 lbs. Yesterday our guide Dan hit 5 halibut. The limit for halibut is 1 per day and 2 as the carrying limit.
There are ling cod around as well, so if you want a basket of fish, now's the time to join us!
