The salmon were biting on the bar, off Bird Rock and off McLure's beach on Tuesday. On Wednesday, aside from a salmon on the bar, the bite shut down north of Elephant. The fish moved down to the Towers yesterday with boats fishing there landing from 1 to 6 salmon, some of them in the 20's. Today the swell is up and no boats have launched from here, so no telling if the fish are still there. There were a few halibut landed at the Towers and a couple of fish jigged up in the bay but nothing on the bar. The water is 57 to 59 degrees and brown and the needlefish are there, so there should be halibut. If only the fish knew that.
