Happy Spring! The sun is shining today after many, many days of rain.
Fishing over the last month has been been a mix of busy days and slow days with the primary location being Hole in the Wall for Chinook. They’re averaging from 9 – 15Lbs, but some close to 25 Lbs have been caught, and are being caught with either spoons or hoochies and anchovies. The optimal depth seems to be between 60 – 150 feet and keep a good eye out for anchovy bait balls. Look for eagles and seals to help you spot them!
