Ocean salmon fishery action picks up in recent days

The ocean salmon fishery picked up dramatically this past week, and as of late it was even better at some ports.

“It looks like Nean Bay was pretty good with over a fish per person, and equal numbers of pinks, chinook and coho as of (Monday, July 18),” said Wendy Beeghly, a state Fish and Wildlife biologist. “In La Push it was over a fish per person as of Sunday.”

Beeghly says Westport had a great day on Monday with better than 1 1/2 fish per rod.

“It was really good at Westport, and they had a lot of coho show up there now so the catch was made up of more coho than chinook. Sunday was slower at Westport.”

At Ilwaco, Beeghly says it was a little bit slower although charter boats pretty much limited, and private boats averaged just under one fish per rod. The catch was mostly coho and a handful of kings.
