We are Very Excited about the upcoming Salmon Season!
For the 2014 season WDFW has changed the regulations for Marine Area 5, allowing us to retain True Cod while targeting Halibut. This is a Great Bonus to an already Great Fishing Trip.
With only four days of Washington State Ocean Halibut trips to offer, we will be offering Sekiu Halibut Charters in Marine Area 5 again this year. Everyone that has called about Sekiu has asked what other fish are we able to keep.
NEW THIS YEAR! we will be able to retain True Cod/ Pacific Cod on these trips. This is Great News as we frequently catch these Great Eating fish while targeting Halibut. We are taking reservations for these trips on May 29, 30, 31st and June 7th
We have been awaiting the news and the early forecast for this years Salmon Season have been Great. The Seasons are now set.
Here is an article from the Seattle Times.
The ocean salmon fishing seasons could very well go down as some of the best seen in more than three decades.
“It will absolutely be a good summer for salmon off the coast, and one of the most significant seen in years,” Doug Milward, the state Fish and Wildlife coastal salmon resource manager said of returns that resemble those seen dating back to the all-time peak in 1977.
State fishery managers unveiled a surprisingly large Columbia River forecast that could be a landmark return of nearly 3 million Chinook and Coho.
The Columbia River fall Chinook forecast of more than 1.6 million is the largest fall return since at least 1938. The Columbia Coho forecast is 1.2 million Coho, and could rival the 2009 Coho season when about 1.05 million returned.
The coastwide sport catch quota for hatchery coho will be 184,800 (75,600 last year), and 59,100 Chinook (51,500 last year).
The selective fishery for hatchery Chinook will be open daily off Ilwaco and Westport from May 31-June 13. La Push and Neah Bay will be open May 16-17 and May 23-24, and May 31-June 17. The fisheries could close sooner if a coastwide quota of 9,000 hatchery Chinook is achieved.
The traditional ocean salmon fishery for Chinook and hatchery coho would open daily at Ilwaco and Westport from June 14-Sept. 30. La Push would be open daily from June 14-Sept. 21 and Sept. 27-Oct. 12. Neah Bay would be open daily from June 14-Sept. 21
We can retain Two Chinook
in our daily limit in Neah Bay

We start our Season with our “Deep Water Ling Cod/Rockfish Combos”.
These Trips were created to offer a Great Deep Water Experience for our guests that were not able to get in on one of the days of our ridiculously short Four Day Halibut Season. The Ling Cod population Offshore is very Healthy. We have no problem finding a couple of dandy Ling Cod for everyone. We then target the offshore Rock fish (ten each) on this Trip; you will come home with a lot of delicious White Meat and sore arms. The state has extended this season to include the first 8 days of May this year. The 20fatham depth restriction goes into effect on May 9th. Regular near shore Bottomfish Trips are always available after the Deep Water depth restriction. We are full for our Offshore Halibut trips. We are Now Full on our Inside Halibut Trips. We will offer these calmer water trips in Sekiu (Marine Area 5) we are able to keep One Halibut and Two True-Cod.
We are expecting to see another Great Salmon Season with large numbers of Chinook available. Last Season in our Port (Neah Bay) we were able to retain 2 Chinook in our daily Salmon Limit. We had Huge Success for our guests, and we are excited to see another Big Salmon year. This is a Pink Salmon year, and we will be able to keep one Pink (Humpie) as a bonus to our two Fish limit. The Regular Ocean Salmon will run through August and into September.
Here are a few pictures from our 2014 Salmon Season.
In September we will move our boat back into Puget Sound to Fish the returning Coho (Silver Salmon) and Humpies ( Pink Salmon).
