Nothing like a little ice to make sure all the salmon get to where they’re going in good shape.

As the last commercial opener closed on June 12, good fishing was had just below the line at Pigeon Point. A glut of fish developed on the docks in SF for a day or so before finding its way to lucky consumers up and down the West Coast and beyond. The next commercial opener will be July 8 and this will open waters from the Mexican border all the way north to southern Humboldt County.

Ocean sport fishing has been very good for those fishing the Pigeon Pt/ Half Moon Bay area in June. Fishing in late June improved for ocean anglers off the Marin and Sonoma coasts, although not quite like the Half Moon Bay bite which some opined may be the best in a decade. Fish caught out of Bodega Bay anecdotally appeared to include more of the bright orange “krill fish” than those caught off the San Mateo coast. Fishing in the Sacramento River is scheduled to open on July 16 below Red Bluff.  Waters above Red Bluff will open on August 1.
