The past few weeks on the Klamath river has been good fishing. Recently it has started to slow down due to the mouth sanding in. Today I had the day off but heard the mouth has blown open!! I will be back on the water tomorrow so stay tuned.
We will continue to fish the lower Klamath river out of the power boat till the fishing slows down to a grind. We will also be pursuing salmon and steelhead out of the drift boat on the Trinity and upper Klamath rivers. Don’t count out and fishing adventures on the ocean! We will be offering fishing trips for rockfish and Dungeness crab, and possibly albacore tuna.
The past ten days have been a bust for the local fishing ports in Humboldt and Del Norte county’s. High winds up to 25 mph and a building swell have kept all the boats sitting in the harbors.
I do have some good news though! We have been up on the klamath river for the past two weeks or more catching king salmon. Its been very consistent with most days hooking a lot of fresh chrome salmon. We are trolling anchovies with in-line spinner blades down in the estuary.
It looks like the ocean will hopefully start to calm down this weekend, let’s cross our fingers for some decent weather and good fishing.
We are taking reservations for the fall run of salmon and steelhead on the klamath river. We are also taking reservations for rockfish California halibut and albacore in the ocean.
The past 3 weeks has been filled with weather, fish closures and a well rounded diversity of species.
Pacific halibut is officially closed till next year! As of now it seems the salmon are all south of Eureka, in Fort Bragg and Bodega Bay.
Rock fish and ling cod are still bitting well at the cape, Trinidad and Redding rock.
The ocean is looking rough through Friday potentially, so I will be trolling for spring run salmon at the estuary of the klamath river. We have had limits three days in a row and hoping there will be more to come.
