Went out Friday and the harbor was loaded with Salmon. They bit right when the sun was coming up and after that we had zero fish in the harbor. We moved to the warm water discharge and missed a big brown trout. I am kind of new to this style of fishing and I am at 30 hours of fishing with no fish LOL. I only cried a little bit.
Hey, I dont mind helping you out. So, majority of the salmon (kings,cohos) have already ran up the rivers and spawning/spawned. The peak of the run was last weekend unfortunately. We are suppose to have rain this weekend so the water can or would be dirty which makes bad conditions. If, however, it doesn't rain, alot of steelheads and brown trouts are staging to run up the rivers before the winter, which you'll find on the piers atm. You can find browns and steelies in the rivers because of the cold front, but they will be hard to find. Depending on which fish you want to go for, I personally would go towards the rivers if it doesn't rain to target easier fish that haven't seen alot of lures unlike the pier where there are people morning to night.
My son and I will be coming up Thursday night to try our luck on Friday. We don't get to do this much so we are by no means pros at it. Just looking for a report on weather or not they are biting and maybe what they are biting on. It has been at least 2 or 3 years since we have been up there so I am sure things have changed around there. Any other tips would be very helpful as well. We only have one day to do this so we want to make the best of it and try to take some home this time.
Thank you in advance for any help.
justinm- so happy you and the boys had success! I hope the spawn I gave you lasted most of the day. I'm glad you posted because I was wondering how you did. Maybe see you again this winter for the winter brown fishing, and bring the boys!
Best King salmon video i have seen this year....Very good editing, makes me want to go out there and try to catch one!
Bravo to the fisherman on there fine netting skills, many a landings are lost at the net, good job netting those Kings!
Keep teaching those boys good fishing etiquette...NOT SNAGGING!

I made this post yesterday but posted the wrong vid here is the right one...
Fishing Port this weekend will go down as one of my most memorable fishing days. I took my 13 year old son and one of our friends. We set out to catch a salmon and I honestly did not really know what I was doing. A really nice person gave me advice and skein and that really helped out. If you happen to see this thank you so much if it wasn't for you we would have been skunked! It took 10 hours to figure out how to catch these fish and I am so proud of the young buys that came out with me and had a never give up attitude. We ended up with 3 and missed many others. Please check out the vid we edited 10-11 hours of fishing into 11 minutes.
