Fish Report for 5-20-2022
by GSSA Staff
There seems to be a decent size body of salmon off the southern San Mateo coast, which is open to sport fishing but closed to commercial above Pigeon Point. The trip from Half Moon Bay south and west is at least an hour and three hours for boats coming out of SF Bay. The weather has kept all but the big charter boats from making the run on most days. The fishing has been good with limits reported on most days.
The commercial fleet has been stuck a few miles further south and may be catching the southern edge of the same body of salmon. It appears this school of salmon is of mixed grade with a good number of commercial size fish mixed in. Weather has also been a factor for the commercial fleet, keeping all but the biggest of these boats tied up on many days.
Early catches of commercial salmon reportedly fetched $10/lb but that dropped to around $6.50 to $7 for many boats during the second opening.
Smaller salmon have been caught out of Eureka and a few salmon are being caught off the Marin and Sonoma coasts.
