Fishing Report

  • Whoa! August just shot by like a peregrine falcon in a free fall attack. Suddenly we’ve tumbled into September where the cranes amp up pounding carbs and protein for their sojourn south and anglers switch gear as the fish runs slide into their fall mode. Last Saturday, the Anchor River was down an...

  • A few days ago, a buddy, JT, gave me a call from his boat while being pounded by so much rain he claimed he’d probably feel drier if he fell overboard. He was fishing in about 90 feet of water trying to get four of his seasoned citizen in-laws into some flats when he spotted jumpers headed his wa...

  • Last week the Olympics offered a diversion when the fishing in some areas started gearing down to a semi-conscious crawl.

  • Things have been a bit gloomy and wet as of late but that’s just fine because no one wants some brain stem mishandling a slash burn or campfire that would give a new meaning to a front yard barbecue. There have been a few uneasy weeks where temps were set on roast while the flora was dry enough to...

  • Once the dipnetting for reds took off this summer, I starting receiving requests for some tips on how to fillet a fish without turning it into something more suitable for stew or soup. It is astounding how many processing challenged individuals you’ll find chopping away at carcasses splayed out on...

  • I was scouting for jumpers along the east and west side beaches of the Spit when I overheard two men squabbling about a fish one of them had just landed outside the entrance to The Fishing Hole. One squawking rooster was adamant it was a silver while the other had steam rolling out of his cranial or...

  • I did a bit of scouting over the holiday weekend in hopes of spotting a silver or two hurtling out of the sea around the Spit. Nada. Why? Because I have received numerous inquiries as to when I think the first coho will make their summer debut at The Fishing Hole. So, at the moment, how can I put th...
