Star Fishing Report:

The bay was poor to fair through the week. With cooler temperatures and falling river levels most fish moved right through the bay and up river. Saturday there was a good bite for awhile to make it the best of the week. Some Indian Creek fish are starting to show up so that should help as they typically hold in the bay waiting for rain. Up river there was fish to be caught but low water conditions make for few spots and tough boating to catch them. Jeff's up river through the week and I'll try to get in some ocean trips with luck.

Monday was just doable on the ocean and thank goodness the fish and crab were biting. So both boats were done with rock fish limits and half limits of Ling Cod and lots of crab. The bay was slow so we dashed up river with the fly rods and had a very nice afternoon catching smokin hot half pounders. They were so fresh their scales were flying off when you got them in the boat. Tuesday the ocean went flat and we could go outside for a real good Ling Cod bits and finished on rock fish with the spin gear. Always fun. The river was still good to excellant for salmon and steelhead. Wednesday through Saturday the river slowed way up and the ocean was a bust due to wind. We're booked through September with ocean and river. Hope we get a calm ocean and fish come in for the bay and river.

The fish left the bay as we expected and blasted up river. The people that did go up river to fish also got in some really killer action. Limits of adults with Jacks mixed in was the deal through Sunday. It slowed after that as the fish moved through and the pressure from the three day weekend put them down. The ocean backed off just enough through the week to get in trips with good fishing enough for limits. Bay fishing will probably be slow until a bunch of new fish show up whenever that is and the up river person will have to fish all the spots all day long to get fish. The ocean as always depends on how much wind and when the west swell shows up. We will be here through the week to do what and when we can. Crabbing continues to be very good.
