Next Saturday, December 1st will be the opening of Marine Areas 8-1 & 8-2 for Winter blackmouth fishing. Both areas will be open for hatchery Chinook with a 22 inch minimum size and a two fish limit. Wild Chinook and Coho must be returned. If you do luck into a late returning Chum you may also retain it under your two fish limit. 

On the first weekend we will be fishing an incoming tide both days with the high on Saturday at 12.09 pm (Edmonds) and Sunday at 12.54 pm (Edmonds). During the Winter I find being out there at the crack of dawn less important than the tides. There are a number of reasons for this: 1st: The depth that we are fishing is generally somewhere in the 90 - 200 foot depths, which have little light penatration to those depths. 2nd: Light in general is less intense in the Winter months. 3rd: We are dealing with blackmouth, which are the teenagers of Chinook, and they are generally always hungry.

These areas wil be open until the end of April 2019, unless we exceed our guidelines for Chinook incounters.

OLYMPIC PENINSULA SALMON DERBY - FEBRUARY 16th, 17th & 18th February 2017

posted by Mike on 12/19/2016

This is one of the most popular winter salmon derbies held in the state. The derby being a three day event will see at least one day of decent water. This has been called the "Iron Man" of salmon derbies due to the inclement conditions under which we fish. However, it does have quite a following of hard core blackmouth anglers.


Tickets once again will be $40.00 for all three days of the event. Everyone in the boat must have a derby ticket.


First prize is $10,000.00, second is $2,000.00, third is $1,000.00 and there are four $500.00 "Mystery Fish" prizes. There are also a multitude of merchandise prizes.


Ted's has tickets on hand at present. I will post more information as the derby approaches. You can also get more informaion on their website at www.GardinerSalmonDerby.org.
