Although there is now (0) retention on Chinook Salmon until July 14th you may still catch and release. Reports have obviously been slim but from what we have heard its been pretty good fishing out there. The hump has been the hot area and We should expect the Southern areas of Bowen and the hump to pick up in the next few weeks.  There is a good assortment of bait in our local waters such as 3 to 5" herring and Anchovies so small spoons have been working exceptionaly well. 5 1/4" Anchovies will also be a good bet! Make sure to keep your bait close to the bottom in the 100 to 200 foot range as this will be key to your success.
