Humboldt Fishing Report 9/10/2015
The Salmon and Steelhead are finally making an appearance on the Klamath river. Last week anglers struggled to bring home the fish but this week they are staying on the hook. Bank fishermen at the mouth are finally getting results and boats are finding easy limits. The fishing is only predicted to improve throughout the month of September as water continues to be released into the Klamath.
Rockfish/ Ling Cod
The Rockfish bite has stayed fairly consistent but the Lingcod have become elusive. Finding schools of Rockfish has not been an issue but the Lingcod are staying hidden. As the mixed SW/NW swells die off this weekend hopefully the Lingcod come out to play.
The jetties have been decent, lots of Rockfish and a few Lings have been reported. Jigs and plastics have been taking lots of fish but soaking bait has been just as effective. Halibut have been spotted in the bay but no reports of any caught.
Tuna conditions continue to look great but no reports of any success yet.
