Feb-March King Salmon Fishing

March 18, 2015

We have been out 4 times (half days) in the last few weeks and it is definitely not great fishing for Kings at this time of year. We had 2 trips with no Kings and 2 trips with 1 keeper each (we were super excited to see them both!).  We have found a few halibut and a bunch of different rock-fish and other bottom dwellers while trolling for Kings (one day we got completely inundated with Kelp Greenling everywhere we went). At this point in the year we are really looking forward to the summer Kings returning to spawn so we can start having some more consistent fishing trips. Here are a few picture highlights:
