Our Favorite Catches
Here are just some of many species of fish will target throughout the season.
Certain times of year are better than others depending on species.
Take a look below and see what you may expect to catch!
King Salmon (Chinook)
King Salmon run from spring to fall with the season typically closing at the end of October. Peak time of year for salmon fishing is typically July. As fall setsin you will see less numbers but a bigger grade fish.
Various Rock Fish
Rockfish season starts in April and will go to the end of the year. early season you can find these fish off deeper reefs, but will move into the shallows as the season progresses.
Tuna can be caught in the late summer and fall months, but only if the warm water comes in close enough and has very distinct temp breaks and blue water. August thru October can be good.
Although Halibut is open year round, the most productive months are during the summer months from June thru September. July and August beingthe best months to fish for them.
Lingcod opens in the spring and is typically open all the way through December. Although you can catch these fun fighting fish all year, the bigger ones are typically landed late in the season.
This elusive fish can show up in numbers one year and not the next. It all depends on if we
have a good squid spawn, which means a good Seabass season. July thru September being
the most productive.
