King salmon fishing was once again tough this past week. A few were caught, but it was a struggle to find willing biters. The positive takeaway from the week is that the red salmon run is smoking hot. The run is coming in so strong that the limit has been doubled from three to six fish per day. Better get 'em why they're here!
On to the weekly report. That's Harold in the photo above. He's a high school classmate of mine so I think the ol' BHS magic is what got this king salmon to bite. At least that's the story I'm sticking with.
For the week ahead I anticipate the king fishing to be the same: tough. I think we'll find some fish, but there will be no easy ones. Oh well, if that's the case, I'll be packing the waders and the red gear...
That's the report. Come back next week to see how the final days of the king season pans out.
