July 1-2017

Largest Chinook : 38lbs.
Largest Halibut : 97lbs.

The fishing remains outstanding, definitely one of our best Junes on record.  The Chinook are heavy in the honey hole, we have seen a transition from a smaller fish in phenomenal quantities to larger on average size fish in still great quantity.  The tyee sized fish are still rolling in at triple the rate from previous years.  Same old story, fish where the fish are and you'll be able to capitalize and that is without a doubt the Sailor Rock to Eagle Nest troll(2 to 3 for those looking at the charts).  Great fishing was had up at Wall Island as well for a mix of big early run Coho(7-12 pounds) and a mix of Chinook.  Other spots that have had some action are Arnie's Hole, Beaver Point and Knob Hill, out front is worth a troll on a flooding tide as well.

Varying depths throughout the day from 40 feet in the morning to 80 feet in the afternoons on a sunny day has made a difference.  Using flashers(green) and anchovy set ups have been the best by far, but spoons and some full herring rigs have been working as well.

Halibut fishing has been pretty good, but in some unorthodox place.  The best has been Parker Passage on the 80 foot rock, it's a tight drift but quality fish coming off it, some way too big.  Chicken Ranch has been great for your under size halibut.

Bottom fishing is heating up offshore, we had some mild weather the past few days and the boats took advantage of it.  Towner Bank and Isnor Rock were really good, but the lingcod fishing is still a grind. 

Flat water is forecast for the next week and we should get full access to all spots and have another crazy haul of fish hit the docks.
