Fishing Report for July 1, 2020

Wednesday, July 1 2020

Holy Carumba! It’s July! As Andre said about these COVID days, the days may go slow, but the time passes very quickly!

The Chinook fishing is good at Entrance, and off Hudson Rock, but kind of sketchy elsewhere. Try fishing the 170 to 200 foot depths, bottombouncing, with Pink Sink, Killy Magee, or Cookies and Cream spoons for best results. Chinook retention from July 15th through September 1st will be limited to a maximum size of 80 CM’s. The largest fish weighed in the derby last year at that size weighed almost 17 pounds, which a substantial fish. My one problem with this method is encountering 20 to 25 pound fish in August. Use a knotless net, try to get them to the boat as rapidly as possible, and take the time to revive them properly.

Coho have been scarce this past week, but they do roam in search of food. Hopefully our herring supply will bump up again, and hold the fish!

The commercial prawners are still doing their thing. So, my traps are staying on the dock.

Good fishing!
