A non eventful opener especially on the news of the Puget Sound salmon closure due to the poor ocean conditions. This year wdfw and the tribes couldnt reach an agreement for the north of Falcon line which establishes fishing for both natives and for sport fishermen.
With a dwindling resource and loss of habitat, fish are affected and everyone loses except for the tribes.
My third attempt for halibut came today as I was invited to join Chris M. to try for the large flat fish of the sea. While we didn’t get into any fish we did enjoy being on the water and experiencing some fine weather.
