It was a gorgeous morning on the first day of the Roche Harbor Salmon Classic Invitational on San Juan Island, as 85 boats with 293 anglers raced out after the cannon gun shot into the island chain in search of the winning hatchery chinook.

So far, Brian Dennis of Lake Tapps in Boat 34 weighed in the first hatchery chinook at 2 p.m.

Reports are in range of 35-plus fish being ‘tagged’ out on the water. Still a few hours left to fish today.

Stay tuned!
