Fishing Update – 2018 Week 8 (August 5 – August 11, 2018)
Salmon are in! After a very delayed start, the silvers, pinks, and chums are being caught in large numbers now. Many boats were limiting and some doing so before noon. The forecast for this year was an above average silver run. No one knows for sure, but maybe the unseasonably warmer and dryer weather in June and July were a factor in delaying the salmon. We are just super excited to see so many lines singing and super memories.
Halibut were a little slower this week or rather, the fishery was not worked as hard because the salmon catch was so up. There does seem to be a split between very large and very small halibut in the water. With so many small fish there is a lot of releasing going on as people sorted for the bigger fish.
This week the weather was very wet up until Friday. Friday was a picture perfect day on the water and was a nice ending to a super week.
Thanks for another super week at Doc’s. See you all again “reel” soon.
