Salmon fishing has been good in the San Juan’s, depending on the day, time, and tide. Schools of Chinook are moving through, you just have to land on them to have a shot. These Kings can be anywhere from 60 ft of water, to 300ft. And just about that same spread in the water column. As far as gear, the Silver Horde Kingfisher Lite’s in 4” Irish Cream have been working for us.
The Hawk’s rod combo, ready for a strike! It’s tough to beat watching that rod unload in slow motion as a nice fish rips the line off the clip, then load back up and tug back down. Keeps me coming back. Hopefully it will continue to produce. Maybe some mojo will find it’s way to the ‘Hawks.
Shiny and Chrome! Ashlee Long got this nice fish while out on the boat with dad Chris. School may be back in session, but there’s a lot to be learned out on the water on the weekend’s too. I know I learn something every time.

Karen Rhinehart got her limit of King and Coho this day.
Chris Carruthers laid down the long arm of the law on this Chinook.
Ingrid Heathcote with a beautiful San Juan’s Summer Chinook. This is what a September King should look like. A big shouldered bruiser gone Beast Mode.
Joe Crisanti pulled into Snug Harbor to show off this sweet feesh.
