Fishing got a little tougher this past week as the mouth has reportedly been sanding over. Boats are still catching several fish per day, both adults and jacks. There’s more steelhead starting to show, as well as a few Coho. When and if the mouth opens up, we should see another push of fresh kings. As a reminder, the lower river quota has been met and salmon over 23 inches must be released. Your adult Chinook releases need to be recorded on your North Coast Salmon Report Card as normal, and please do not remove adult fish from the water when releasing. The bag limit is two salmon less than or equal to 23 inches and two hatchery steelhead.
