Fishing the Skagit

Beautiful weather and the lure of salmon drew hundreds of fishermen to the Skagit River in recent days. This photograph was taken from Riverside Park in Mount Vernon. The pink salmon run is bringing an estimated six million salmon into the Puget Sound rivers, with about 1.2 million of those headed up the Skagit. Beaches […]

Relaxed Monday

The often bustling Heart Lake shoreline was quiet Monday, affording this fisherman the opportunity to spend a relaxing afternoon with few “neighbors” to distract him.

It’s Saturday, it’s sunny and school’s out. A great time to grab a fishing pole and head for the beach. In this case, the rocks off Fidalgo Bay at the base of Cap Sante.

Fishing the pass

This fisherman appears to know his way around. He made a bee-line for the south end of Pass Island at Deception Pass Wednesday evening, tossing a line in at a time when tides were kind to his small boat. Wasn’t able to stay long enough to see whether the fish were striking … but this […]

New season

Sunday, Day II of the new freshwater fishing season, was a busy one, as evidenced by this scene at Heart Lake in Anacortes. Lake Erie was busy, too, as was Pass Lake. Pass is a fly-fishing lake, no boat motors.
