Humboldt’s Friday Fishing Report 10/17/2015
The fishing remains steady on the lower part of the Klamath and Trinity river. As long as the mouth remains open there are steady streams of fishing making their way through. The recent rain will most likely not be enough to kick off the late fall Salmon run. Salmon and anglers diligently await the next large rain storm.
Shelter Cove provides the last chance for an ocean Salmon before the 2015 season closes. A handful of nice sized Silvers were caught and released yesterday out of Shelter Cove, hopefully there are Kings in the mix this weekend.
Rockfish/ Ling Cod
Rockfishing has remained excellent along the Humboldt coastline. Shelter Cove, Cape Mendocino and Trinidad have provided quick limits for most anglers this week. Kayak anglers fished the Cape yesterday and reported two 40 inch Lincod and non-stop action throughout the day. The weather will keep most anglers off the Ocean this weekend but the Jetties have provided a productive alternative this past week for bank fishermen.
