Hey got a couple questions for all you Salmon buffs. I don’t fish for them much, is the King run over? How long does it usually last? I thought I remember last year seeing them in the river this time last year but haven’t seeing anything but dead ones. Any info on them would be much appreciated.

Not 100% true. The regulations states " to fish with more than three hooks, baits, or lures." Stating that one bait with 3 trebles is one unite can be misleading. The DNR follows this simple rule, if it is a rig/lure that can catch multiple fish then it is multiples into that 3 rule. So that's why an umbrella rig is illegal if it has more than 3 hooks on it, but a quick set rig would be considered 1. A crappie rig would be considered as many as it has hooks. A crankbait is considered 1 no matter the number of hooks technically.

So what Jericho stated is true, just not the most complete.

You may use up to 3 treble hooks...one bait w three trebles is considered as one unit...1 treble alone is 1 unit...crappie rig with 2 hooks ( or treble hooks ) is one unit.


Therefor:  You can fish w 2 lines ( one with one hook and the 2nd w 2 hooks...crappie rigs is legal).  3 lines w single or single treble is limit. 


When in doubt ask an oldtimer or consult the rule book / regulations!!


Tight lines....

Fished the harbor all weekend.  Caught quite a few kings.  All fish where caught at dark.  Shallower water.  From 10ft-15ft casting #11 flicker minnows.  Reeling very slow and fish would hit on the pause.  Fish seemed to be tight to bottom reason we fished shallower water.   Fished range from 6#- 19.4 #    great time.  Tried daytime eggs , cranks , jigging and not a fish.

Can someone tell me is there any regulations against anchoring while fishing in the harbor?  My buddy thought there was.  I see plenty of people anchored though.   I understand it would not be smart to anchor in any main boat traffic channels.  Any info appreciated

Fished the harbor from 4:45 to 8:30 am. Didn't get a single bite...only saw 4 fish caught.

Didn't have my trolling stuff with me and that's what people where getting fish on.

Better luck next time.
