Crescent City salmon eludes fishermen

Crescent City Coast - Crescent City, CA (Del Norte County)

by Kenny Priest

The salmon action is still pretty much non-existent reports Leonard Carter of Crescent City’s Englund Marine. He said, “I haven’t heard of any kings caught this week, and the rough ocean isn’t helping. We’ve had a pretty good California halibut bite lately off of South Beach, with a few incidental Thresher Sharks being landed as well. I heard one measured eight-feet. The sloppy ocean has kept the boats from targeting rockfish, but when they’ve been able to get out, it’s been good. The lings bite has been excellent.”
