Fishing Reports

A quick update to yesterday's report. The strong north winds have done their job and swung the current around 180 degrees. The temperature variation from top to bottom in 80 fow has gone from 2 degrees yesterday to almost 9 at this time. This is great news for pier fisherman and small boat anglers as it will bring some big fish back to the river mouth searching for food. For those that prefer to get away from the pack you should be able to find fish from the surface to bottom in waters deeper than 80 ft. For some reason the 40 - 80 foot range has not been very productive, at least for me, this season. The cold water should also keep some of those tasty 3 - 6 lb coho's in the neighborhood so put plenty of orange on in the top 20 and don't be afraid to push your trolling speed up to 3 mph or better. 

For those of you fishing in smaller boats, especially if this is your first weekend on the water this season, remember that those gentle off shore breezes that greet you first thing in the morning will likely go northwest around 11 am. Keep a close eye on the wind later in the morning should you venture out to deeper water and be ready to call it a day before it gets ugly.   

Good luck and have a great weekend!
