John "Johnny Sandbar" Bartholomew caught this 27 pound salmon while trolling on the 19th. In the picture, the thing under the salmon is a pelican trying to figure out if he could fit the fish in his beak. He couldn't.

Even on the Wye there is a need to target the river early morning or late evening to get the best out of it. As a result to getting to the river at these times I have fortunately had some reasonable catches although the target fish has predominately been the Grayling with the Trout waiting 'til the onset of darkness before feeling safe to feed.
I have also been trying out a new 9' #3 rod which was built by a friend of mine who has built many rods over the last few years and has amassed a great deal of knowledge on the optimum process involved (more on this in a future post).

|A little worst for wear but a very successful Olive Dun pattern for the Wye|

Tom Cook of Dillon Beach ca,ught this 24# salmon in the outer bay near the esteros. Tom now holds the last three spots on the big fish board, all to fish caught by the esteros. Aside from some good looking water at McClure's and the outer bay, everything else looks pretty bad with cold, clear water. The rockfish are biting well and there's halibut back by Hog, but for salmon it seems like either the outer bay or Jenner. The bite in front of the river is real good if you don't mind company.

Mike Nursement of Colfax mooched up this 20# salmon in the Elephant Rock area, as well as a second salmon, a halibut, a lingcod and a couple of rockfish. He went back out for a limit of abalone. That is a full day's work and a lot of cleaning.

Nice fish, Tracy.
AJ Masters posed with Gerard Fitzgerald's 34.5 pound salmon. Gerard limited on salmon and halibut on Ten Mile. That's why he's a legend.
This is a picture of a legendary day on Ten Mile, submitted by Jerry DaCruz. The day was Friday the 29th, the particular place on Ten Mile was not given.
Judy Perrigo shows off one of a pair of 22 pound halibut she caught on the bar yesterday. Her captain, Carl, lost a jig to a fish that broke his 50# PowerPro.
Randy Cannedy of Folsom landed Lawson's Landing's first white sea bass of the season. It weighed 25 pounds and was caught on Ten Mile Beach while trolling for salmon.
