Hanford Reach Still Open to Salmon Fishing

Sacramento River Experiencing Very Good Fishing

By: Jeff Goodwin We are knocking on October’s door, which means the upper sections of the Sacramento River will see impressive numbers of king salmon.

By: Mick Thomas The Klamath River is absolutely loaded with salmon right now. Unfortunately, we met the quota for adult Chinook September 12 and the Lower Klamath River is now open to possession of only jack salmon and hatchery steelhead. Meanwhile, it’s been a phenomenal run.

Puget Sound Coho Providing Anglers Opportunity

By: Mike Ainsworth Chinook retention has expired for the year in Puget Sound. Fortunately, there’s still plenty of coho around for anglers to target. I’m expecting this fishery to persist through September and am basing this around the number of coho still holding in the straits. Due to the lack of rain we’ve had reports [...]
