Resident Coho Open Marine Area 10 On June 1st
Resident Coho will open in Marine Area 10 (Seattle / Bremerton) on June 1st giving us at least a little salmon fishing. Though not the largest salmon at this time of year, averaging in the 16 - 20 inch range, they are at least feisty for their size. If you want to get the most out of them down size the gear you are fishing them on. If you do such you can catch them on your trout / kokanee gear, providing lots of sport. If you stick to your typical 11 inch Hot Spot and squid combination you will also catch them, but you won't get much fun out of them.
No matter how you catch them you will find that they are fine eating at this time of year. They are feeding on krill, crab & shrimp spawn.
