Humboldt’s Friday Fishing Report 10/2/2015


Reports

Salmon/Steelhead

Fishing on the Klamath has slowed down. When the mouth opens up people have done well but when the mouth closes the fishing has been much more difficult. Although the fishing has been tough the quality of fish has improved.

Rockfish/ Ling Cod

The Rockfish bite has picked up again after a short lull. The Cape remains the best bet when the weather allows but limits are possible from most locations. A large variety of Rockfish have been caught recently but the Lingcod have not been as voracious as normal.

California Halibut

There is still bait in the Humboldt Bay. Smaller Halibut have been caught by seals near the oyster farms with the potential for larger ones next to the Coast Guard Station. Woodley Island Marina has live bait which is the best bet for catching an elusive California Halibut.
