The days are getting longer and the sun is out. That means many fish filled days and memories being made. We are winding down the halibut season while looking forward to the ocean salmon season and inner Puget Sound Chinook fishery. If you haven’t planned any days off the first thing you might want to pencil in is a few days of fishing the Puget Sound when it opens the third week of July. With a reduced quota number this year of catchable Chinook I’m guessing the Chinook season last 1 week at best. Yes you read that right 1 week. The bright side is the coho season is looking better than the last couple so get out while you can. Plan your work schedule and get the boat running tip top.
We are excited to announce that Sportco & Outdoor Emporium Pro Staffer Captain Dave Anderson will be our guest speaker on Wednesday June 19th. Dave is a well versed captain who is very knowledgeable in regards to fishing for salmon whether that be in the ocean or in the Columbia River. He has had some fantastic days of late putting halibut and bottom fish in the box to. Dave will be there to help get us dialed in for the summer fishery. Be sure to join us in June for this meeting and bring your fishing partner too.
Our South King County chapter will be hosting our annual salmon derby out of Point Defiance in Tacoma on Saturday August 3rd.
