Good weather is forecast for the next few days, so if you haven't got your fill of salmon yet, here's your opportunity. They're still biting from buoy "2" down to the Trees in 50 to 70 feet of water, mostly on the bottom but some are coming up high now. It's typical late season action with nothing going on for an hour or two, then you get a little flurry of action, then nothing again. Keeping the hooks in their mouths is also challenging. Getting a halibut to put the hooks in its mouth is even more challenging this year. It should be prime time for halibut now but nobody told the flatfish. Lots of sand sole are on the beach, so maybe they could be tiny replacements. There's a few boats running for albacore tomorrow. Report to follow.
