On the water report. 4 in the box, released 6-8.
140-150 ft. Just north of jetty
Thanks for your report yesterday MJB, went out of Florence today with my son and Landed 5/13
coho. No Chinook. Mostly clipped for us. We were also N of the Jetty in 150-160'. Saw a few others out there braving the wind waves.
Also got 13 crabs in 3 traps at 70'. Surprisingly full. Great day, despite the wind.

Ran over last night after work and fished until dusk. Marked bait and fish but the fish really didn't want to play. Only one native catch and release. 120-150 ft off Nye Beach. Gorgeous night out on the water.

Out early this morning, finally got a hookup around 10ish. in 140fow. Circled around again and had a double hookup. Unfortunately lost all 3 at the boat. Nothing more for after 2 another hours.

Fished today till noon---no coho, no nooks. Talked to a few other boats having the same results as us. Covered north of the jetties to the lighthouse from 90-160 fow. Didnt seem to be many fish there yet.

Went one for three this morning. Started at the whistler off Newport, trolled west northwest to 160' and then north to the lighthouse. Got bit twice in that area, both to the boat. First one a keeper and then a nice native, good release. Stuck with that area until 11 AM. Big chop and wind from the NW. Decided to call it and trolled my way back to the jetties. Hooked another native off Nye beach in 90 FOW. Good release at the boat. All on diver, dodger, pink hoochie, chovy chunk, 10 pulls, 4.1 kts...

Fished almost the identical same line as KingSlew just described. One to the boat but was a native and released. Two more drive-by bites tripped the downriggers but didn't hook up. Also like KingSlew trolled back to the jetty and pulled the boat out around noonish.

Wife and I are heading out of Newport and hoping for coho tomorrow. Will make a report . . .

Would be nice to hear of any caught today . . .
Talked to a fish checker this afternoon at the SB Marina. Hadn't seen a salmon all day. Parking lot was pretty much empty. Port was socked in. Be prepared for fog, hot in the valley... Good luck...

I’m going to try for salmon Thursday out of Newport. Anyone else going to be out there that day? I’ll post results on Friday.

There was a charter that ran a trip yesterday without a single takedown so we had no real hope of a fishy day. We left the dock at 6:30 , out to the whistler and trolled southwest. Moderate heavy fog that broke up pretty quickly and was completely gone by 8:00. No wind and a gentle 5’ swell. Into fish pretty quickly and stayed interested all day. Buddy had an afternoon date so we were off the water by 11:30. 9 solid hookups and half as many “swing and a miss”. Three to the boat for one keeper.
After action analyses shows most fish lost due to their smaller size not tripping the divers. We didn’t try too many colors as we were getting bit.
One other boat dropped in near us and they kept south. Their numbers pretty much matched ours, three rods , twenty fish lost , four to the boat and two kept. We got out to 170’ , they stayed under 160.
They’re out front right now boys.
Heading back out in the morning with a full crew.

Wife and I started fishing about 9:45. Just like Heavyduty stated we hade a lot of hits and misses. Only got one native to the boat to be released. The wind started picking up so we left about 2:30. Diver, Pink hoochie with a hunk of herring. Frustrating day.
