Chuck , Mike , Eric, and I fished out of La push Saturday and Sunday JUNE 18TH and 19TH the weather and water conditions were very good.
Although salmon fishing was opened we chose to fish for bottom fish instead and it appears we made the right call. The fishing was very good! We caught our limits of big lings and limits of huge black cod on Saturday . On Sunday we caught our limits of lings and another huge pile of of black cod and a few rock fish to top off our over flowing fish boxes!
The black cod fishing was smoking hot and we could not have hoped for a better average size. These things were huge. Our biggest ones were over 20 pounds.
The lingcod fishing was a little slower but still very good with our biggest being 32 pounds.
The talk on the docks was that the salmon fishing was very tuff with only a few fish being brought back to the docks each day, but it should be geting better very soon!
