Humboldt’s Friday Fishing Report 4/15/2016
Smith – The Smith received some much needed rainfall yesterday which should bump the water levels up slightly and add some color to the water. Fishing has been OK with a few fish reported per trip.
Eel – The Eel river looks ideal for anglers pursuing end of the season downers. The water has turned a nice green and should have a good amount of spawned out fish heading back to the ocean.
Shelter Cove – The Salmon season remains difficult with limited success and poor ocean conditions.
North/South Jetties – Fishing has been hot off the North and South Jetties. Anglers fishing off the North dolos have reported large Lingcod and keeper Cabezone along with some nice sized Greenling this past week.
Beaches – Surf Perch fishing along the Humboldt coast has been hot for the past few weeks. The beach across from Stone Lagoon has provided the best action but King Salmon and Samoa Beach have also been producing.
