Marine Area 9 (seattle & Bremerton) Salmon Fishing
This seasons coho fishery in Marine Area 10 has been quite good. We have been seeing some very good fishing for the past week and a half. The area is open for retention on hatchery coho as well as pink salmon.
The fishing has been good on the Edmonds side with most anglers fishing just below the Area 9/10 line down to the oil docks and south toward Boeing Creek.
We have been seeing a mix of smaller delayed release resident coho in the 3 - 5 pound range as well as some ocean fish with most in the 7 - 9 pound range with an odd fish to 15 pounds. There are still a few pinks being caught in the 4 - 6 pound range with an odd fish to 10 pounds. There are still a few Chinook being caught upwards of the mid twenties. All Chinook must be released.
Coho have been in the 25 - 45 foot zones fist thing in the morning and dropping down into deeper waters later in the morning where the 70 - 90 foot zones have been holding the fish.
We should see good fishing through the end of the month.
