Re: Makes me wonder if WDFW is getting worried about license sales?

Although there a few exceptions I try to avoid the combat fisheries also. Maybe because I'm old and just don't need a fish that bad or blessed over the years, where we kind of been there done that or who knows... An exception may be the Baker Lake sockeye fishery but that is a unique beast all of it...

Re: Makes me wonder if WDFW is getting worried about license sales?

Going against the current a bit I have a different view on this. With an all inclusive fishing license you're spending about 50 cents a day for the right to fish, not a bad deal in my book. If you compare your license fees to the cost of your boat, tow vehicle, insurance, gear, fuel, clothing, bait,...

Re: propane heater

A Hunter/Buddy on the step of our TJ keeps the enclosure toasty warm. Typically we get 4-5 hours on the low setting.

Columbia River North Jetty Closure

It looks like the North Jetty fishery will be closed through 2019. Parking and access will be restricted in support of critically needed jetty repairs.

The CCA derby on Baker Lake. It runs Friday-Sunday this weekend. Enjoy the format, the big money goes to the Mystery Weight. You just have to catch a fish not necessarily the big one.

Re: Where are the Baker Lake Sockeye?

Possibly but the fish that I've seen jumping at Ala Spit and off the beach at Snee-oosh are sockeye.

I/we'll be up at Baker for 4 or 5 days this week so I'll try to get a comprehenive report out Monday or Tuesday next week.

Re: Where are the Baker Lake Sockeye?

Another thing to consider; we are on something like 40 days with no measurable percipitation. Through June and July we usually have brief but intense periods of rain. There are a ton of fish in the salt off Ala Spit and Snee-oosh Beach. Also the 8-1 crabbers I know are seeing huge schools of salmon ...

Re: Where are the Baker Lake Sockeye?

So..., I'm wondering. Forecast is for 47,000 fish. Less 50% for the various tribes = 23,500 available for escapement and the sports fishery. With 3 or 4 weeks to go the count is at 12,434 sockeye. If they were able to trap an average of 395 fish a day through the end of the run they would still hit ...

Re: Lost and Found, Lost, Help!

Good news! Even though we had already done a "follow the dots" drive looking for the box when we discovered it missing and found nothing; yesterday I walked the first part of the drive (I have a well beaten path to the non-ethanol station...). About 100 feet from the driveway I noticed the box sitti...
