Dave Hurley’s Salmon Tip of the Week
The reports from the commercial boats have been phenomenal conditions above Pigeon Point. Normally in April and May, salmon fishing is best in our area before the fish migrate north towards the Gulf of the Farallons. We hope the salmon are still off of our coast when the season opens on June 26th…
All the major salmon rivers in California are now dammed, cutting off access to habitat and the natural flows salmon need to survive. River banks, side channels, and floodplains, all needed to rear salmon, have been badly altered.
Restoring some semblance of more natural river conditions, with adequate cold water flows, and bank, side channel and floodplain habitat is needed to restore salmon. Maximizing hatchery production is needed to keep the industry viable.
