JUNE 25, 2016, BROOKINGS FISHING REPORT
Salmon fishing is slowly improving out of the Port of Brookings Harbor, with a lot of coho, or silver salmon, showing up in the catch. Before the coho season opened on June 25, we were releasing coho, including fin-clipped hatchery fish that we can now keep. While overall kings fishing remains slow, it has been decent when the weather cooperates. We got a nice king on Thursday trolling a plug-cut herring with a Fish Flash flasher. Lingcod fishing continues to get better after a slow start to June, while fishing for rockfish has been very good with a really nice grade of fish. Salmon season remains open through Aug. 7, and July is typically the best time out of Brookings.
