Chinook SalmonThe Chinook fishing over the past couple weeks hasn’t been as fast as we had hoped considering the large run expected to come through here, however that means the majority Chinook are still on their way. We have gotten a few nice Chinook over the past few days in the 15-25lb range and the fishing has started to pick up. Chinook have been in close around Beg Island, Great Bear Rock and Sail Rock. We have also been getting a combination of salmon and halibut at Big Bank, though the larger Chinook salmon have mostly been coming in close. We have been getting them on a whole range of lures including 3 inch Silver Horde spoons, needle fish hutchies, 4 inch Coyote spoons and glow and uv hutchies.
Coho SalmonCoho haven’t shown up in big numbers yet, though we usually expect to see them show up in greater numbers at the end of June. We are catching a few in close as well as out at Big Bank. We have mostly been getting the Coho while fishing for Chinook and Halibut.
HalibutHalibut are hitting up at Long Beach bank, Inside and Outside Lighthouse Bank, and out at Big Bank. If you are wanting to get a combo of salmon and halibut the best bet right now is heading to Big Bank.
Below are some pics from the past couple weeks!
