Humboldt’s Friday Fishing Report 5/6/2016
Salmon – Salmon fishing at Shelter Cove is improving with some anglers achieving limits and most still catching fish. One kayak angler reported a quick limit earlier this week. The ocean conditions are predicted to improve Monday and should provide a decent opportunity catch Salmon.
Pacific Halibut – Pacific Halibut fishing started off hot this week with easy limits for many. The best success was reported out of Eureka but a few were hooked at Shelter Cove as well.
Rockfish – The fishing on the North and South jetty has been slow. The water clarity is not ideal and most anglers are struggling to land fish. The best success has been reported farther out by the dolos.
Surf Perch – Surf Perch fishing along the Humboldt coast is a good option for anglers who are landlocked by stormy weather. The beach across from Stone Lagoon has provided the best action but King Salmon and Samoa Beach have also been producing.
