North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast August 9th, 2019

North Coast Fishing Report – It’s been a bit of a disappointing week on the north coast last week.

The one bright spot recently has been the…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast July 21st, 2017

North Coast Fishing Report – The best thing going this time of year is typically ocean salmon fishing. It’s not going all that well this year… With only 10% of the quota eaten up through July 16th, it’s a clear indication that the fishery is under-performing given the nice ocean conditions we’ve experienced this year.…

North Coast Fishing Report and Forecast August 12th, 2016

North Coast Fishing Report – Ports on the north coast are surprisingly quiet. With the already dismal offshore coho salmon season closed, albacore so far offshore it would be foolish to run for them, and a mediocre-at-best halibut fishery, anglers are finding excitement in other areas of the region. That in particular, would be the…
