Humboldt’s Friday Fishing Report 4/29/2016


Reports

Oceans:

Salmon – The best bet for an ocean Salmon in Humboldt County remains at Shelter Cove. The fishing has been slow and the conditions unfavorable but certain windows have provided anglers with success. Winds from the North are lowering the water temperatures and should potentially entice some Salmon into feeding mode.

Pacific Halibut – Pacific Halibut fishing opens on May 1st with no minimum size and one daily bag limit. The ocean conditions are not expected to be ideal but most anglers will be diligently waiting for the first window.

Rockfish – The North and South Jetties remain the best shot for anglers interested in catching Rockfish. Fishing has slowed down as the seas have become murky and turbulent. There are still fish to be caught but it is not as hot as a week ago.

Surf Perch – 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.
