Humboldt’s Friday Fishing Report 6/17/2016
Rockfish – The Rockfish bite has been stellar with easy limits from Shelter Cove to the Cape. Trinidad has been slow for the past few days with a few fish being caught here and there, but not a wide open bite.
Shelter Cove – The best bet for landing a Salmon in Humboldt County is at Shelter Cove. The bite has been hot all week at Shelter Cove with nice sized fish.
Eureka – There have been reports of phenomenal conditions with lots of bait, bird and whales out of the Humboldt Bay, but the bite has not matched the signs. A few anglers limited in 50ft of water directly outside the mouth of the bay but most struggled to locate and land fish.
Trinidad – There are definitely Salmon around Trinidad, but they are tight lipped and most anglers are struggling to get the fish into the net. Most Salmon being caught are either Silvers or are on the smaller side.
Dungeness Crab – Dungeness crab fishing has been good but not as hot as the opening weeks. Most anglers are still able to acquire their limits and there is plenty of crab around.
