Salmon Fishing Great When Calm Seas Prevail

Salmon fishing remains very good on the days the boats are able to get out of Noyo Harbor, according to Randy Marino of Captain Tuna Sportfishing.

"We caught limits of kings five trips in a row," said Marino. "We had to cancel trips on the Fourth of July weekend, due to heavy winds."

Trollers have been mooching anchovies and hoochies at 60 to 85 feet deep in 300 feet of water along the Mendocino County coast. Rockfish and lingcod fishing has also been superb in the reefs of the Fort Bragg area.

Salmon fishing has also been excellent when the boats are able to get out of Eureka.

"The salmon fishing was really good on Monday, July 8," said Mitch Differding of Englund Marine in Eureka. "The charter boats reported limits of kings averaging around 20 pounds. They trolled straight out of the jaws of the harbor at 30 feet deep in 180 feet of water."
