Fishing has been mostly good the past few days for Chinook. The bites are best at first light and then during tide changes in the day. This may change again in a few days. There are lots of Coho around close to shore and offshore. Fishing close to shore is always more fun as it is shallow water and the fish seem to fight harder. Small spoons and white hutchies are doing best.

 The offshore halibut fishing has been pretty consistent. The last couple days were slower but we expect that will just be a blip in the radar.

For anyone that still hasn’t booked your accommodation there isn’t much left so it would be good to check out Airbnb, HomeAway, and the Chamber of Commerce. We still have a few dates left in August blocked out for our Gold Packages, but it won’t be here long. 

Below are pics from the past week!
