Humboldt’s Friday Fishing Report 9/18/2015


Reports

Salmon/Steelhead

The water releases have finally shown up along the Klamath. The bite has been good and should remain steady with the recent rain. The fish have not been the biggest but limits are common. The mouth of the Klamath is now closed.

Rockfish/ Ling Cod

Rockfishing was stellar last weekend with a nice grade of fish including a 28.5 inch Cabezone and a 39.5 inch Lingcod out of Trinidad. The weather has slowed the fishing down this week but anglers should do well in between the gaps in the weather. The Cape is a good bet if conditions allow.

California Halibut

California Halibut have been spotted in the Humboldt Bay. Smaller Halibut have been caught by seals near the oyster farms with the potential for larger ones next to the coast guard station. Woodley Island Marina has live bait which is the best bet for catching an elusive California Halibut.

Tuna

Conditions have prevented anglers from making the Tuna run but Tuna is being sold by the commercial fisherman from the docks on Woodley Island Marina.
