Golden gate Salmon 6/9
« on: June 09, 2019, 06:12:56 PM »
Went out with some buddies on the Montauk, fished near Rocky Point for nothing for an hour and a half. Took off to the Middle Grounds and caught 4 from 12-16 lbs by 12:30. Headed home due to my friend having lunch plans or think we would’ve had limits.

Plenty of salmon you have there - good work!

The Gate has been a treat for salmon fishing the last few years - I hope it keeps the bite going.

Thanks guys, pretty stoked on the good start to the year. Been out three times, 4 fish two times skunked once. Have definitely had worse starts for salmon.

That is great that you guys are off to such a hot start.

i have to say this though...  How in the heck does California with its gigantic population have a healthier fishery for kings then Washington?  Very frustrating...

Simple answer. Better ocean conditions.  The vast majority of OR and WA Chinook are northern migrating to AK where the warm water anomaly called the “blob” created an inhospitable environment 2015-2017. CA Chinook, specifically the Sacramento stocks are also northern migrating but not as far where the “blob” wasn’t as bad or prolonged.

Yes agree, a lot of it is ocean conditions - water, temp, feed and so on.  Wasn't too long ago that the top of CA (Eureka area) was off the hook for salmon a few years back. They were limiting out before breakfast (everyday) and I knew people that would go out and hook into dozens of fish a day as we were scratching for salmon all year....now the Golden Gate has been on fire and the Bodega area has also done real well the last few years. Also Cali is a LONG state with many different areas that the fish run thru, I'm not sure but maybe our salmon population is more abundant?

This Saturday there will be a lot of peeps on the water - Bodega Bouy less than 2 ft wind chop with 2 ft swells at 14 seconds ( I believe the bouy is 8 miles out), you would be able to set your wine glass on your gunnel while pulling in fish tomorrow :wink:

I would also like to add that in CA we have quite a few successful net pen projects as well.  Not sure about WA and OR.  The club I am in (Coastside Fishing Club) has had vey good success with their net pen project in Half Moon Bay.  Tight lines.

My understanding is that the California runs don't get hammered by the AK and BC commercial fishermen like the WA and OR runs. Don't really know if that's true.

Well whatever the answer is (I think the responses on CA fish not going up to AK are spot on) I am glad you guys get to have that King fishery.

Also the "Golden Gate Salmon Association" have trucked fish from the hatcheries during the drought years to cooler safer waters down stream ensuring a higher survival rate. 

Support these groups as they do a lot for salmon fisheries.

Last week it was reported there were salmon being caught from Pt Reyes to the Bodega Head anywhere from 90 feet to the 300 foot line - that is miles and miles of area.

Hope to get out soon!

There is another “middle grounds” in Suisun Bay, before the Sac River. You may have been confusing the two.
