Fished Harbor most of the day Friday and fished harbor Saturday morning.  Many fish jumping with most of the kings quite bronze colored but surprisingly there were also some fresh/silver colored kings mixed in.  Since the west wind, the water temperature has stayed down in the 50's and a lot of bait fish were seen in the discharge, along the rocks, and moving around in the harbor.  I used crank baits 30 minutes before sunrise both days and around sunset Friday and had success.

Windy afternoon so fished around the boat slips and had lots of hookups but no success.  Elbow to elbow in there.


Chartruese / Bright Green Lures seem to work the best for me.  Many spawn bag pro's seemed to do great.

Catch em On the Drop!

Fished at Coal Park Friday afternoon, right next to Power Plant outflow, which was pumping pretty good ! Water clarity was good, and temp was 60 degrees in harbor. Plenty of 3-4 year old kings in harbor , concentrated by outflow & Creek mouth ! Only Problem they were more interested in spawning than Biting ! Saw about 20 kings caught between 2-630 PM. Friday . Of those 20 maybe 2-3 were caught in mouth , the other 17 were snagged and had to be returned ! Most everyone was fishing with Skein or Salmon eggs sacs, off bottom . One local youngster was fishing with Orange Powerbait and managed to take about 1-2 legally ! Local bait shop in town doesn't carry Powerbait   , nor do they have spawn sacks with floater beads inside , only  had regular spawn sacks. When i arrived at Coal Park at noon , it was arm to arm people, the whole length of pier ! Thinned out after many left at 130 pm. There you have it , i couldn't get even get a bite. FYI: Kings i saw had mostly turned dark brown , and probably by next week without a fresh run, they will be good for only eggs or fertilizer !

Jimoke,    Your deleted Quote " Wind from the West , fish bite the BEST. Wind from the East, Fish bite the LEAST !


You left out the rest of the poem ! "Wind from the South, Take'm by the mouth. Wind from the North , don't Go forth !  <((((<

4 Days of mostly West Winds in the Forecast ! Famous Quote from the Movie Gladiator "Those of You (FISH) who are about to die, we salute you " and from the start of the INDY 500 "

Past by the Port Washington harbor about 230 pm today, and wind was blowing hard out of S/SE . Inside harbor  water was chocolate milk, and mud line was a half mile or so out of harbor ! Saw nobody fishing, from shore, and cleaning stations were a ghost town ! winds are supposed to change tonite after 11 pm to the S/SW then light west for Tuesday all day with waves subsiding to 1 to 2 ft.! .Winds are forecasted to go south after 10am Wed and build waves 3 to 4 ft. Might be worth a try late Tuesday or early Wed. Am ! Let Us know if anyone is catching in harbor or out in front of harbor trolling?

you gotta wait until the wind is blowing to the west.  The cold water comes into the harbor along with the fish.  At least that is what I was told.  Kinda weird.

Just moved to Port Washington and looking for some advice on how to fish fall salmon in the harbor.  Wanting to try spawn sacks with my kids.  How  do you set them up and do you use a slip bobber or off the bottom.  Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

I was there yesterday and it was pretty slow only saw a couple fish caught  but did talk to one of the boats and he said there are a lot of fish just outside the gap waiting to come in that the water is to warm ?????

I lost an Okuma rod in the Harbor this week if anyone snags it I can describe it.  If not I guess I get to support Fat Boys by buying another rod anyways :)
