Humboldt’s Friday Fishing Report 4/22/2016
Shelter Cove – Salmon Fishing remains tough at Shelter Cove. There was one report from a kayak angler with a limit but that has not been the general trend. Most anglers are struggling to catch fish and a limit is not easy to come by. The current water temperature is warmer than Salmon prefer which seems to have diminished the Salmon bite but could potentially entice some Thresher sharks into feeding.
North/South Jetties – Fishing from the Jetties has slowed down slightly. The rain mixed with the stormy seas should cloud up the water visibility for the next few days.
Beaches – Surf Perch fishing along the Humboldt coast is a good option for anglers who are landlocked by the stormy weather. The beach across from Stone Lagoon has provided the best action but King Salmon and Samoa Beach have also been producing.
