The Chinook salmon fishing has improved a little bit but still with scattered results with salmon being caught at Pt Evens mooching or jigging, Pt Dalco on the in tide mooching or trolling and Clay Bank shelf area on high water or low water mooching, jigging or trolling.
Trollers are using mostly flasher and artificial squid or salmon plugs.
Moochers beware there are a lot of dogfish around and they love fresh herring.
We currently have live herring medium sized again.
Crabbing in area 13 is slow for Dungeness crab they have been just overfished by our co-managers I believe but there are Rock crab of good size to be had.
Area 11 opens for crabbing July 2nd and there has not been any fishing for crab here for almost 2 months by our co-managers so I think there should be some Dungeness and Rock crab to be caught.
