Fly Fishing 03/13/2015

FLY-FISHING: The sea-run cutthroat trout action has been fair to good. Some fly-anglers are casting a Miyawaki popper on the surface or a Clouser minnow below the surface. Chum fry continue to show up in small schools.

Fly Fishing 03/10/2015

FLY FISHING: The action for searun cutthroat trout has picked up some. Anglers are reporting seeing some small schools of chum fry entering the saltwater, so the action should increase in the coming weeks as more fry begin their outmigration. Remember, searun cutthroat must be released.

Fly Fishing 03/06/2015

FLY FISHING: The action for sea-run cutthroat trout has been slow. Patterns that mimic a sand lance have produced some hook-ups for fly anglers.

Fly Fishing 02/27/2015

Fly Fishing 01/13/2015

FLY FISHING: The searun cutthroat trout are there, getting them to bite has been a bit of an issue in recent days. Look for water moving at a slow walking speed along rocky beaches on the outgoing tide. Try amphipod and euphausiid patterns.

Fly Fishing 01/06/2015

FLY-FISHING: The action for sea-run cutthroat trout remains very good. The best action has been off rocky beaches in the Olympia and Tacoma areas. People also are hooking some resident coho, but those fish seem scattered rather than in schools.

Fly Fishing 12/23/2014

FLY-FISHING: The South Sound is the place to look for sea-run cutthroat trout. Try a popper pattern on a floating line on the surface, or a conehead squid pattern fished under the surface. The key is to keep moving along the beach, and from beach to beach, until you find fish.

Fly Fishing 12/19/2014

FLY FISHING: The beach action for searun cutthroat trout has been fair. Try shrimp patterns, or poppers on the surface.

Fly Fishing 12/16/2014

Central Puget Sound 01/05/2013

Central Sound: Salmon fishing has been fair to good in Marine Area 10. There has been good action on the west side, from Skiff Point down to Blakely Rock. Anglers are having to contend with some hungry sea lions when they hook a fish.

-------------------------------------------------------

Coastwide 09/19/2014

OCEAN AREAS: The state shut down the season off Westport on Friday, as the total salmon catch neared the quota. Fishing there was some of the best in the last 15 years or so. Salmon fishing in Marine Area 1 (Ilwaco) will close Sunday, as will areas 3 (La Push) and 4 (Neah Bay).

Coastwide 09/02/2014

COAST: Anglers can now keep both wild and coho salmon in the Westport, La Push and Neah Bay areas. However, anglers in the Ilwaco area must continue to release wild coho.

Coastwide 08/19/2014

Washington coast: John Keizer of saltpatrol.com said he had a good weekend fishing in about 40 feet of water near Ocean Shores. “We had all but one salmon in the box by 8 a.m. and ran out and did some bottom fishing,” he said via email. His recommendation: “Most of our action was on a whole herring behind a fish flash. The herring were brined in Pro-Cure Brine N Bite Complete in green. The other setup was a green Silver Horde Gold Star squid behind a flasher. The squid was scented with Pro-Cure Bloody Tuna Jell scent.”

As of Monday, anglers can now keep two chinook as part of their daily limit off the coast of Westport.

North Sound 03/17/2015

NORTH SOUND: The salmon fishing has been slow from Sekiu through the San Juans Islands and down to Whidbey Island. At the Everett ramp on Saturday, for example, 106 anglers were checked and they had only nine blackmouth among them.

North Sound 03/06/2015

NORTH SOUND: The action has been spotty, but people are catching some blackmouth off the south end of Hat Island. Look for fish holding near the bottom in water 105-115 feet deep. A Kingfisher Lite spoon in Irish cream pulled behind a flasher has been effective. Point No Point, Double Bluff and Possession Bar also have produced salmon.

North Sound 02/27/2015

NORTH SOUND: The blackmouth action seems to be improving, and the fish are getting bigger. Coho Killers trolled closed to the bottom do a good job mimicking the candlefish that anglers are finding in the bellies of their catch. Point No Point, Lip Lip Point and Skunk Bay have been holding bait.

North Sound 02/24/2015

NORTH SOUND: Jerry Thomas of Mount Vernon caught an 18.95-pound salmon to win the $10,000 first prize in the Olympic Peninsula Derby last weekend. Anglers brought in 292 blackmouth to be weighed. Michael McLean of Tacoma finished in ninth place with a 14.05-pound salmon.

North Sound 02/17/2015

NORTH SOUND: The most consistent action has been in the Port Angeles to Sequim area along the Olympic Peninsula. On Saturday, anglers averaged about 0.5 blackmouth per person. A reminder to anglers that Marine Area 7 closed to salmon fishing Sunday.

North Sound 02/13/2015

NORTH SOUND: Salmon fishing in Marine Area 7 (San Juan Islands) will close at the end of the day Sunday. The closure is being done to protect wild-chinook stocks. In January, the state Department of Fish and Wildlife reduced the catch limit in the San Juan Islands to one salmon per day, down from two, and later limited fishing to Fridays through Sundays. Marine areas 6 (eastern Strait of Juan de Fuca), 8-1 (Deception Pass), 8-2 (Port Susan) and 9 (Admiralty Inlet) are scheduled to remain open into April. There have been positive reports from Elger Bay, Cama Beach and East Point.

North Sound 02/10/2015

North Sound: Results for the 12th Roche Harbor Salmon Classic are in with 338 anglers in 99 boats weighing in with 84 fish on Feb. 6 and 63 on Feb. 7.
David Reep of Mount Vernon won the $10,000 first prize with a 22.3-pound fish. Michael Surdyk of Bellingham was third with a 19.6-pound fish ($3,000) and was on the top boat. The boat, based in Snohomish, also included Larry Surdyk and Jason Henning caught five fish weighing a combined 64.3 pounds. The top boat price was $2,000.

North Sound 02/03/2015

NORTH SOUND: The best salmon fishing has been from the San Juan Islands south toward Port Townsend.

North Sound 01/30/2015

NORTH SOUND: Anglers should note that salmon fishing in Marine Area 7 is now open Fridays-Sundays only. The reduction, and an earlier cut in the daily limit, are efforts by the state to keep the fishery open while reducing impacts on wild-chinook populations. The change means the Roche Harbor Salmon Derby will go ahead as planned beginning Thursday.

North Sound 01/27/2015

NORTH SOUND: The most salmon are being caught in the Port Angeles-Port Townsend area, and by anglers in the Bellingham-Anacortes area. Based on state creel samples, the fishing improved through the weekend. There have been concerns salmon fishing in Marine Area 7 would close, but organizers of the Roche Harbor Salmon Derby said the state they will not have to cancel the Feb. 5-7 event.

North Sound 01/23/2015

NORTH SOUND: The salmon fishing has been consistent in the San Juan Islands. Look for the fish to be suspended in the water column, rather than hugging the bottom. Hoochies seem to be most effective right now. Just a few fish are being caught at Mid-Channel Bank and Point No Point.

North Sound 01/20/2015

NORTH SOUND: The blackmouth fishing at Mid-Channel Bank is off to a fair start, if the weather allows folks to stay on the water. Blackmouth topping 10 pounds are being caught by people trolling anchovies or Silver Horde Coho Killers behind a glow flasher.

North Sound 01/16/2015

NORTH SOUND: Marine Area 9 reopened to salmon fishing Friday. Typical hot spots are Double Bluff, Mid-Channel Bank, Possession Bar and Skunk Bay.

North Sound 01/13/2015

NORTH SOUND: The best action is in the San Juan Islands based on creel reports from boat ramps in Bellingham and Anacortes. A reminder that the daily limit in Marine Area 7 is now one salmon.

North Sound 01/09/2015

NORTH SOUND: Effective Monday, anglers in Marine Area 7 (San Juan Islands) will be allowed to keep just one salmon. The current limit is two. The state is reducing the daily limit to control the impact on depleted salmon stocks. The fishery might close before the scheduled end date of April 30 if the area’s catch guideline is met. Fishing has been fair to good in waters off Jefferson Head and Kingston.

North Sound 01/06/2015

NORTH SOUND: Anglers fishing out of Anacortes and Bellingham continue to have the best luck for salmon.

North Sound 01/02/2015

NORTH SOUND: According to multiple reports, anglers have had some luck landing fish in the Seattle and Bellingham areas.

South Sound 03/17/2015

SOUTH SOUND: The few people catching salmon are having to put in a lot of time and effort. Most people are trolling with a flasher and spoon or hoochie near the bottom in water 120-160 feet deep. The fish being caught are weighing 5-15 pounds.

South Sound 03/13/2015

SOUTH SOUND: Salmon fishing in the Tacoma area remains slow but has gotten a little better this week. One fish brought in weighed close to 13 pounds. Trolling in order to cover lots of water has been the preferred method. Hit the slag pile and Quartermaster Harbor area. In Marine Area 13, people are hooking salmon off Point Gibson and Green Point.

South Sound 03/10/2015

SOUTH SOUND: A handful of blackmouth were caught during the weekend. A few fish are being caught in Quartermaster Harbor area and Point Dalco, and off Point Gibson on Fox Island.

South Sound 03/06/2015

SOUTH SOUND: People have been fishing off Point Dalco to get out of the north winds and have been picking up a few blackmouth. Some salmon up to 13 pounds have been caught off Point Gibson and off Anderson Island in Marine Area 13. People trolling a spoon or artificial squid have been hooking fish, although some fish are being hooked mooching with a herring or salmon jig.

South Sound 03/03/2015

SOUTH SOUND: More than 891,000 coho (approximately 20,000 more than last year) are expected to return to Puget Sound rivers with the central and south Sound anticipated as the “bright spots,” the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife announced recently. The forecast also calls for 6.5 million pink salmon to return, on par with 2013. However, the number of returning chinook is expected to lag a bit.
Until then, Point Defiance Boathouse Marina reports salmon fishing in the South Sound is promising with anglers landing fish as large as 12½ pounds despite light pressure. Fox Island and Point Gibson are good places to test your luck.

South Sound 02/27/2015

SOUTH SOUND: Reports indictate a slight improvement in the salmon fishing off Tacoma. While the pressure is still light, a few blackmouth are being caught. Try the Quartermaster Harbor area, as well as the flats between Point Dalco and Point Defiance. Most people are trolling a spoon or artificial squid behind a flasher.

South Sound 02/24/2015

SOUTH SOUND: More of the same, poor catching when it comes to salmon.

South Sound 02/20/2015

SOUTH SOUND: The staff at Point Defiance Boathouse Marina reports fishing in the area is very slow but some anglers are catching flounder and sole. An epic squid fishing season has finally wound down.

South Sound 02/17/2015

SOUTH SOUND: Salmon fishing remains very slow overall, with anglers kept ashore by strong winds. Some squid are still being caught off area docks.

South Sound 02/13/2015

SOUTH SOUND: Salmon fishing remains slow. A few blackmouth are being caught off the clay banks in Tacoma, with anglers trolling flashers and spoons about 10 feet off the bottom in water 120-150 feet deep. Some folks are still catching squid by jigging off local docks.

South Sound 02/10/2015

South Sound: The staff at the Point Defiance Boathouse Marina reports salmon fishing in the area has slowed “to almost nothing” since the Feb. 1 opening. Poor weather has kept people away.
For the best chance try using flasher and spoon or hoochie at a depth of 120-140 feet between Owen Beach and the clay banks.
Anglers are still catching squid.

South Sound 02/03/2015

SOUTH SOUND: The salmon fishing in Tacoma waters has been slow since fishing opened Sunday. A few blackmouth were caught opening day and the action has been hit and miss since then. A few squid are still being caught off local docks. An angler reported online have success catching some large flounder by jigging on the Nisqually flats.

South Sound 01/30/2015

SOUTH SOUND: Salmon fishing in Marine Area 13 is producing some fish, but the vast majority are too small to be kept. Fox Island and Point Gibson are yielding some keeper fish. Fishing in Marine Area 11 (Tacoma) reopens Sunday.

South Sound 01/27/2015

SOUTH SOUND: It has been a very slow month for salmon anglers in Marine Area 12 (Olympia). The weather and poor fishing has kept most people home. In fact, through Sunday, just 48 anglers have been checked by the state. That would be a low number on a good summer day. Marine Area 11 (Tacoma) will reopen Sunday.

South Sound 01/23/2015

SOUH SOUND: The Fox Island area, especially Point Gibson, has been fair for blackmouth. Troll with a spoon or hoochie about 10 feet off the bottom in water 120-150 feet deep.

South Sound 01/20/2015

SOUTH SOUND: Salmon fishing remains very slow in Marine Area 13. A few fish are being caught off Point Gibson and other spots around Fox Island by trolling flashers with a hoochie in water 120-150 feet deep.

South Sound 01/16/2015

SOUTH SOUND: The salmon action in Marine Area 13 remains slow overall. Popular locations this time of year are the mouth of Wollochet Bay, Point Gibson and Green Point. Jigging for squid remains good from local docks.

South Sound 01/13/2015

SOUTH SOUND: It seems to be a broken record for salmon anglers from Olympia to Tacoma, but the action remains very slow. Creel checks from Friday-Sunday showed no salmon caught buy the handful of anglers who did go out.

South Sound 01/09/2015

SOUTH SOUND: Anglers in Marine Area 13 (Olympia) are catching a few blackmouth off Point Gibson, Green Point and the mouth of Wollochet Bay. Watch for fish feeding on midges at the surface. Trolling has been the most effective method.

South Sound 01/06/2015

SOUTH SOUND: Salmon fishing is slow in the Olympia area. Point Gibson, Green Point and the mouth of Wollochet Bay are producing a few hatchery blackmouth. Try trolling in water 120-150 feet deep. Salmon fishing in Tacoma waters is closed. The squid action remains good for people jigging from local docks.

South Sound 01/02/2015

SOUTH SOUND: The Point Defiance Boathouse Marina reports anglers are catching salmon in Marine Area 13 (south of the Tacoma Narrows Bridges). Mooching and jigging are working in the Point Gibson area, but trolling with flasher and spoon or artificial squid might be the best bet. Squid are still being caught off the docks in the Tacoma area, but the season is winding down. Marine Area 11 (Tacoma and Vashon Island) is closed for salmon fishing.

In terms of sheer numbers, the action around Tacoma has been pretty good since the opener. On Sunday, there were 62 chinook checked at Point Defiance ramps. But considering there were 287 anglers checked, the average catch is less than one-quarter fish per person. The biggest fish caught weighed a little more 20 pounds.

Point Defiance Park Boathouse and ramp 04/23/2014

Westport 11/11/2014

WESTPORT: Anglers have been catching coho at the marina.

Westport 11/07/2014

WESTPORT: The coho in the marina action remains fair to good. A 14.3-pound fish caught by Rick Ruggles of Grayland won the season derby.

Westport 10/31/2014

WESTPORT: If you want a saltwater fix, head to the boat basin, where people are still catching coho. Some of the fish are topping 10 pounds.

Westport 10/24/2014

WESTPORT: If you want to include some salmon fishing with a clam dig, cast some bright-colored lures among the rocks in the marina to hook a coho. The fishing in the basin is still fair to good.

Westport 10/10/2014

WESTPORT: The coho salmon fishing in the marina remains steady. People are using yellow Mepps Flying C spoons or a No. 4 Vibrax spoon in pink or orange. Cast among the rocks and use a slow, steady retrieve.

Westport 09/26/2014

WESTPORT: The coho fishing in the marina is improving, with 25 fish caught one day earlier this week. Cast spinners along the rock edges. Also, this weekend is the third annual Salmon Tales festival. Get details at facebook.com/SalmonTales.

Westport 09/16/2014

WESTPORT: Anglers fishing in the marina are starting to catch coho salmon. If lures aren’t working, try eggs under a bobber or cut-plug anchovy fished slow and deep. In the ocean, coho continue to dominate the catch. They also are getting bigger, with most fish weighing 10-15 pounds.

Westport 09/12/2014

WESTPORT: The fishing was excellent last week, with anglers averaging 1.82 salmon per trip, one of the best averages of the season. Of the salmon caught, 91 percent were coho. The best action remains to the north of the harbor, and in water about 150 feet deep.

Westport 09/09/2014

WESTPORT: The action since the weekend has been mostly for coho. Charter boats are running north about 15 miles from the harbor mouth, then heading west about 8 miles in water about 150 feet deep. The tuna action has slowed as the fish have moved south and far offshore for now.

Westport 09/02/2014

WESTPORT: John Keizer of saltpatrol.com says he had a good weekend fishing in the Westport area. While filming an episode of “Angler West TV” his group caught six king salmons heavier than 20 pounds. They also caught 30 albacore tuna — almost all using live bait — about 40 miles southwest of the harbor. “Fishing was off the charts,” Keizer said via email.

Westport 08/29/2014

WESTPORT: Most charter boats have been heading straight out 15 miles from the harbor mouth. Most boats are coming back with limits, although coho have been dominating the catch the last few days. Last week’s average catch was 1.70 salmon per person, one of the best of the season.

Westport 08/26/2014

WESTPORT: The best action again seems to be in shallow water just north of the jetty. Look for fish holding about 15-25 feet down in water 40 feet deep. Trolling a herring or a Silver Horde Kingfisher lite spoon behind a flasher.

Westport 08/22/2014

WESTPORT: Salmon fishing remains very good, with most anglers heading home with a limit. Most boats are running about 17 miles south-southwest of the harbor mouth. Fishing down about 100 feet in water up to 300 feet deep. A chinook caught Monday now tops the derby leaderboard at 34 pounds, 5 ounces. Last week’s average catch was 1.47 fish per person.

Westport 08/15/2014

Westport: Starting Monday, Aug. 18, anglers in the Westport area can keep up to two chinook as part of their two-salmon daily limit, the WDFW announced earlier this week. Anglers are allowed to keep two chinook per day in the ocean waters of Marine areas 2 (Westport), 3 (La Push and 4 (Neah Bay). Marina Area 1 (Ilwaco) fisherman are still limited to one chinook as part of their two-salmon limit. Wild coho must be released in all four areas.

Westport 08/12/2014

Westport: The Westport Charterboat Association’s most recent report indicated anglers are catching kings about 20 miles south of town.

Westport 08/08/2014

WESTPORT: The best action seems to be in close to shore, a few miles north of the North Jetty. Most charter boats are fishing in water 30-90 feet deep. Some of the chinook are weighing 20 pounds after being cleaned. Last week’s average catch was 1.31 salmon per person. Matthew Carr won the youth division, landing a 20.5-pound salmon.

Westport 08/05/2014

WESTPORT: The salmon fishing remains the same, very good. Some boats are running out about 17 miles, while others are staying close to shore off Ocean Shores. During Saturday’s Washington Tuna Classic, the tuna were about 45 miles southwest of the harbor. Team All Rivers & Saltwater Charters topped the 60-team field with a total catch of 130.04 pounds. The largest tuna landed was a 33-pounder caught by Team One Time.

Westport 08/01/2014

WESTPORT: The average catch last week rose a bit, from 1.31 salmon per anglers to 1.40, with anglers catching three coho for each chinook caught. The best action continues to be about 23 miles straight west from the harbor mouth. A 35-pound chinook was brought in earlier this week, and the coho are getting larger.

Westport 07/22/2014

Westport: The Westport Charterboat Association’s most recent report indicated charters landed five or six chinook per boat while fishing near the casino at a depth of about 100 feet.

Westport 07/18/2014

Westport: The action has slowed this week. Not everyone is catching limits, but the average catch is still more than one salmon per person. The majority of the catch right now is coho. The fish seem more scattered right now than they have been in the last week or so.

Westport 07/15/2014

Westport: Salmon fishing remains excellent, with charter and private boats catching their limits of chinook and coho by mid to late morning. Fishing close to the beach 5-6 miles north of the harbor mouth — near the Quinault Casino, in water 60-100 feet deep — has produced the best results. The chinook bite has been best early in the day.

Westport 07/13/2014

Westport – 780 anglers checked from May 31-June 1 caught 427 hatchery-marked chinook for 0.55 chinook per angler catch average; 1,142 anglers from June 2-8 caught 288 hatchery-marked chinook for 0.25 per angler catch average; 582 anglers from June 14-15 caught 274 chinook and 554 hatchery coho for 0.47 per angler catch average for chinook, 0.95 for coho and 1.42 overall; 2,715 anglers from June 16-22 caught 1,503 chinook and 2,838 hatchery coho for 0.55 per angler catch average for chinook, 1.05 for coho and 1.60 overall.

2,472 anglers from June 23-29 caught 1,435 chinook and 2,543 hatchery coho for 0.58 for chinook and and 1.03 for hatchery coho and 1.61 overall; 3,941 anglers from June 30-July 6 caught 2,124 chinook and 3,328 hatchery coho for 0.54 for chinook and 0.84 for hatchery coho and 1.38 overall.

WESTPORT

A total of 3,941 anglers participated in the all-species salmon fishery during the week of June 30, landing 2,124 Chinook and 3,328 coho. Through Sunday, July 6, a cumulative total of 5,336 Chinook (19% of the area guideline) and 9,263 coho (14% of the area sub-quota) have been landed.

Westport 07/11/2014

Westport: Last week’s average catch fell to 1.38 salmon per person, but reports from this week indicate the fishing remains very good. Some charter boats are returning to port by 10 a.m. Most boats have been heading out about nine miles and north of the jetty. The catch has been mostly coho as of late.

Westport 07/04/2014

Westport: The action remains excellent, with the average catch at 1.61 salmon per person. While the majority of fish being caught are coho, some large chinook are being caught. Some fish are pushing the 35-pound mark.

Westport 07/01/2014

Westport: The salmon fishing has slowed down some, in part because of the weather and in part because bar conditions kept smaller boats in port Sunday. People are catching some fish to the north and straight out from the harbor mouth. Look for fish from 160-200 feet deep in water about 300 feet deep.

Westport 06/27/2014

Westport: The best action on the coast was off of Westport last week, where the average catch was 1.60 fish per person, according to state creel samples. The catch was about 2 to 1 coho versus chinook. The very good action continued this week, with limits being caught when weather conditions allow. Some of the chinook are topping 30 pounds.

Westport 06/25/2014

Westport: The fishing was good to very good for chinook and coho. Anglers were fishing in 280-300 feet of water west to southwest of Grays Harbor. Coho could be hooked at just about every depth, while the chinook were running deep at 200 feet. The best action came on a Fish Flash with a white lighting Kingfisher spoon.

Westport 06/18/2014

Westport: The fishing was very good over the weekend, with many charter boats coming back early with their limits of chinook and coho. Many boats were headed north of the Quinault Casino, finding fish in water about 200 feet deep.

Westport 06/14/2014

Westport: Since the May 31 opener for the area between Leadbetter Point and the Queets River (Ocean Area 2), 1,142 anglers have caught 288 marked chinook.

Westport 06/11/2014

Westport: Westport Charters says the fishing is pretty slow but could pick up a bit this weekend, when fishing restrictions switch from two hatchery kings to either one king and one silver, or two silvers. But the staff at Westport Charters says the action should really pick up by the end of June.

Westport 06/07/2014

Westport: Salmon fishing has been good. Last weekend, the first of the season for Ocean Area 2 (Leadbetter Point to the Queets River), 780 anglers caught 427 fish.

Westport 06/04/2014

Westport: Salmon fishing since the opener has been good, but not red-hot. Many of the chinook were weighing 15-20 pounds. Look for them in the north beach area off Ocean Shores in 30-60 feet of water. Many people were pulling a herring or Silver Horde spoon behind a flasher.

Westport 05/28/2014

Westport: The ling cod and rockfish action has been slowed by ocean conditions.

Westport 05/24/2014

Westport: Action for ling cod and rockfish has been good. One angler landed a 39- pounder. People were having success with pipe jigs. Salmon fishing opens in Marine Area 2 on May 31.

Westport 05/17/2014

Washington coast: The Westport Charterboat Association reports anglers are taking advantage of good weather to land halibut and lingcod. Halibut fishing closes in most of Marine Area 2 (Westport-Ocean Shores) starting Monday.

Westport 05/14/2014

Washington coast: The Westport Charterboat Association reports anglers did well over the weekend catching halibut and lingcod.

Westport 05/10/2014

Westport: The halibut season is off to a good start after bad ocean conditions halted fishing the first few days, with most anglers bringing home a fish. The ling cod action has been fair to good.

Westport 05/03/2014

Westport: Unfavorable ocean conditions have made fishing more difficult. People are catching some ling cod and rockfish, but not too many limits.

Westport 04/26/2014

Westport: Poor weather and difficult ocean conditions have made for few charter boat trips heading out for ling cod and rockfish.

Westport 04/23/2014

Washington Coast: Westport Charterboat Association reported Saturday: “There was one charter boat out today, and the skipper said he wishes he hadn’t gone.” Weather hasn’t been cooperative. However, when the weather is nice, so is fishing for rockfish and ling cod.

Westport 04/09/2014

Westport: Improved ocean conditions meant better results Sunday. People were catching more ling cod, including one that weighed 37 pounds, 13 ounces.

Westport 04/05/2014

Westport: The fishing has been slow because the weather has kept many charter boats in port the past two weekends. When they can get out, anglers are coming home with black rockfish and ling cod.

Westport 03/29/2014

Westport: Charter boats have been coming back with good catches of ling cod and rockfish, including some limits.
