It’s About ‘BUT Time!

Halibut opens up tomorrow, but unfortunately mother nature decided to rain on the opening day parade! We’ve cancelled our opening trip due to a very poor forecast – but this is fairly typical of the May fishing season with the weather being tempermental.

Next week we have a couples spots left on Thursday the 17th and 1 spot left on Saturday the 19th. Give us a call at the office if you’re wife (or husband) would love some fresh Halibut steaks for dinner! 541-265-6800 … Read entire article »

2012 Sport Salmon Seasons Finalized!

Coho selective season opens on July 1 this year and runs through July 31 or 8,000 fish. That’s kind of a small quota – but in September we get some bonus time to make up for it. Limit is 2 fin-clipped coho per person per day. Coho non-selective season opens September 1-3 and will behave a little … Read entire article »
