The fishing season begins May 1
and ends October 20 and charters are available anytime in between. May signals
the start of some excellent spring King salmon action. These early season
Chinooks are lean and mean, after the long winter, and provide the ultimate
in tackle-busting action and fine eating. In addition to the shallow-water
Kings, Brown Trout and silvery Steelhead are bonus catches. Lake Trout become
legal targets after May 1st and help make May one of the best months for
smorgasbord catches. May fishing is sometimes really cold but the resulting
catch will be well worth it. June is the month the lake starts to warm and
thermoclines form. Lake Trout, Chinook, and some Steelhead make up the catch
for June. July is when the BIG King Salmon start to show up along with all
the other species. In July you will have a smorgasbord catch of all different
species and sizes. August is prime time for BIG Kings, after a long summer
of constant gorging on bait fish these husky brawlers are at their peak in
terms of weight and fighting ability. This is the best time to catch a trophy
for the wall. September is the time for the BIG Kings in the harbor. You will
fish in the river, or just outside the piers and catch mature Kings that are
ready to run the river and spawn. This also is the best time for a trophy.
October fishing is an offshore fishery for younger immature Salmon and Steelhead.
You may fish 5-15 miles out trying to find concentrated schools of fish.
