The commercial Herring quota was caught quite quickly, so this is great news for local waters to have large amounts of bait. The start of this year has shown some promise for a good year for Chinook salmon in our local waters. On a couple outings in February I

The good, the Coho salmon return was excellent with solid fishing through the summer. The concern, the Chinook salmon return to local waters seemed lower and the average s
