Humboldt’s Friday Fishing Report 9/23/2016
Shelter Cove – The Salmon bite has been slow over the past week with very few Kings reported. The Rockfishing has been decent with a few large Lingcod caught amongst the smaller lings.
Eureka – The main focus for the rest of the 2016 season will be Rockfishing out at the Cape. The Fishing around Cape Mendocino remains phenomenal when conditions allow.
Trinidad – The fishing has been slow out of Trinidad this year. With Pacific Halibut coming to a close, Rockfishing will be the new priority for most anglers. The Rockfishing out of Trinidad has been mediocre over the past week with less than ideal ocean conditions keeping many anglers off the water.
Klamath – The Klamath river is providing most Anglers with a great shot of hooking either a King Salmon or Steelhead. Most boats are averaging at least a few fish a boat with a nice combination of smaller Steelhead and fresh Kings.
Trinity – Fish are just beginning to show along the Trinity River as both Salmon and Steelhead make their way up the river system. With the sustained water releases, most anglers have had a difficult time locating and catching the fish, as their behavior is different than in years past.
