Drove down today to check things out. Harbor open. Few guys by McKinley and summer fest. Didn't see any fish caught. But I noticed something in the water. It was brown and about a foot long!

Hit the Hoan 3 times this week. All afternoon fishing 2-4 hours.

Last Tuesday the perch bite was decent near the lighthouse. I came home with four keeper perch with one of those a decent jumbo, but all eaters. They were swallowing large fatheads. Didn't catch any small ones.

Went out again Wednesday and Friday, and blanked on the perch, after giving at least two hours each day. Fished the river side by the lighthouse each time. Moved to the marina side where the brown bite has been good to great. Everyone down the line pretty much catching 1 or more 3-5 lb silver browns. mostly off of large shiners suspended from bobbers, but 1 or 2 on silver spoons/cranks. 

If you make it out I recommend picking up shiners. definitely the bait of choice for the fish right now. Any time of day seems to be OK.
