THE FOLLOWING FISHING REPORT COMES FROM KEVIN KLEIN, PUGET SOUND ANGLERS, SAN JUAN ISLANDS CHAPTER
Salmon fishing has been steady in the San juans. Hootchies have been good producers. The fish seem to be biting a bit more suspended than most winters.
The bait that’s around right now seems to be a mixed bag. Probably why the old school hootchies are working. They look like all sorts of bait to a following fish.
Joining clubs like Puget Sound Anglers and Coastal Conservation Association is a great way to get involved in sport fishing, meet new fisher folk, and let your voice be heard on issues that involve angling and resource issues.
CCA North Sound and PSA Bellingham have a combined meeting Wednesday June 21st at 6:30 p.m., at Nicki’s Bella Harbor Marina in Bellingham. IFGA hall of famer Gary Loomis will be the guest speaker. This would be a great event to attend, for newbies or old salts alike.
We’ve got the 36th annual Orcas Legion Derby coming up this weekend. It will be interesting to see what wins.
As the Seahawks showed on Sunday, as long as you keep trying (fishing), there’s always a chance. Go Hawks!
1. The sun rises silently on a new day, while the twin sparking hammers drive us forward, slicing through the stillness with their bright thunder. Forward into a new beginning, and an everlasting covenant that this day could be a day… The Day…of good fishing. That’s why we come back. That’s why it’s always on our minds. Those who are drawn to the river, and those who are drawn to the Sea.
