Action Alert! Ask San Francisco to do its part to protect salmon and the environment.
If you live in San Francisco, or have family or friends that do, please help us urge San Francisco Mayor London Breed to hire a new general manager to run the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission who reflects San Francisco’s values and leadership in protecting the environment and the City’s salmon fishing industry.
Dave Hurley’s Salmon Tip of the Week
Lake Berryessa– King salmon are also found under the Putah Bridge with Gitzits tipped with an anchovy fillet. The lake held at 72 percent.
Folsom Lake– Jerry Lampkin of TNG Motorsports and Guide Service said, “The king salmon bite remains the same as we are finding kings in the 20-inch/3-pound range with pearl hoochies behind a Crush Dodger.
Lake Oroville– The numbers of king salmon have been down, but the quality remains excellent as fish to over 6 pounds have been landed this week with Brad’s Cut Plugs tipped with anchovies or pearl hoochies with a dodger at depths from 40 to 60 feet.
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.
