Fish on! The Salmon are still here. There have been Jacks caught in the estuary. As for the Halibut the season will remain open until October 31st. The majority of Halibut have been caught West of Goat Island as well as West of Thomas Creek Bridge. When catching Rock Cod that is a day to day occurrence and can be hit or miss. For the Rock Cod some days prove to be better than others. Cabazon can still be caught until the end of September when the season closes. There is a limit of 1 per day and the minimum length is 16".

The salmon are still out there, don’t give up hope. Even though it has slowed down just a bit, salmon are still being caught. Yesterday, they were averaging a fish a rod for those on the hunt for salmon. Most fish were being caught directly out of the Harbor at about 130 feet of water. On average the depth range of 60-120 seemed most favorable. As for Pacific Halibut there have been a lot caught right off of the Thomas Creek Bridge. Just yesterday a 60 pounder was weighed in at the Chetco Outdoor Store here in Brookings! Before you head out, make sure you stop at the Chetco Outdoor Store to stock up on supplies and get the latest and greatest fishing information.

Wind, Wind go away! A great big thanks to Roland from Chetco Outdoor Store for providing the updated fishing report. These past few days the wind has been quite a problem and kept most ladies and fellas from fishing Salmon. It is expected to back off a bit in the next few days. For those early risers, lots of Lingcod and Rock Cod have been caught off of the deeper waters (@200ft) near Twin and Bird Rocks.
Don't let the wind discourage you as several Salmon have been caught, it just hasn't been in the numbers we all hope for.

The latest from the Brookings area is that bottom fishing has been very good when boats are able to get out. Lingcod and rock cod have been very good. Perch fishing has also been good, but has been slowing down the past few days. Perch fishing should pick back up again when the wind dies down. The wind has been a hindering factor for getting out of the harbor the past few days, which is unfortunate as we’ve seen a string of 80 degree days filled with sunshine. The big news once again this year will be salmon fishing. We are all anxiously awaiting the season opener on May 1. Chinook season will run through September 8, which is once again a very good season. The fishing is expected to be very good this year with plenty of good sized 4 year olds ready to be brought in. Coho season will run July 1 through July 31 with a maximum quota of 10,500. We’re expecting a big salmon season, and with just 6 days until it opens, stay tuned for lots of exciting news!
