Fishing Update: More and bigger chinook

Kevin Klein sent in a fishing update: Salmon are still biting in the San Juans, depending on time and tide. You just have to be at the right place at the right time, and that takes knowledge gained from experience.

Kings keep showing up in good numbers. There are definitely more and bigger Chinook this year than last. Larger spoons and Hootichies have been producing well.

We are still waiting for Coho to show en mass. Think October for them. Hopefully we’ll see some of the big Northern hook nose that are so fun to catch.

It’s a great time in the Islands to get out and have some fun on the water, and catch some fish!

    My girlfriend and I had an awesome weekend with silvers out on the rocks and in the shallows near Washington Park with our kayaks back on 9/5 and 9/6. Silvers were feeding so close to shore on bait that if we fished any deeper than 10ft we would get no action. Limits for each of us and was the girlfriends first (ever) fishing experience. Went back the weekend of 9/12 and not a single hook up even though we fished 2 (large) tides changes. Do you think the silvers are just getting started out on the end of Anacortes and passing by the Island shallows, and will grow in #s by early Oct if no significant rain.
