Coho showing up in good numbers off the northern coast

Many along the coast especially at ports like Westport are wondering where the hatchery coho are?

Here is some good news from Sean Phelps who had just returned on a sailing trip from Hawaii last Thursday, and said as they cruised through Swiftsure Bank and by Neah Bay it was coho city.

Phelps caught so many coho that they got tired of taking them off the hook, and quit fishing.

“They were all hatchery fish,’ he said. “We were traveling at between 6-7 knots, and the large squid was bouncing off of the surface. We also caught two large tuna about 50 miles out.”
