Humboldt’s Friday Fishing Report 9/16/2016
Shelter Cove – The Salmon bite out by Bread and Butter has been red hot this past week with easy limits. Anglers have been making runs to tuna grounds with mixed success over the last couple of weeks. The Rockfish and Lingcod bite remains strong with some nice sized Lingcod being caught.
Eureka – Halibut has been the main target for most anglers out of Eureka. The Pacific Halibut quota has almost been met for this season so get on it while you still can! There are still California Halibut lingering in the Humboldt Bay, but a majority of the bait has disappeared from the bay.
Trinidad – The Rockfish and Lingcod bite has been very slow out of Trinidad. The Pacific Halibut bite has been mediocre with a few fish being caught, but no monsters being reported.
Klamath – The mouth of the Klamath has been opening and closing over the past week and preventing a steady influx of fresh fish into the river system. There are definitely fish around, but the bite is far from hot. Hopefully the bite will turn on in the next few days with a sustained opening of the river mouth.
Trinity – Salmon are just starting to show on the Trinity river with a mix of nice Steelhead too. The high flows have hindered most bank fishermen but have provided a great opportunity for boat Anglers.
