Salmon Hot and Warm
Invest In YOUR Salmon Future


Salmon fishing was decent for some boats on Sunday 9-17 with the New Salmon Queen trolling up 14 salmon to 17 pounds for 12 anglers while the New Huck Finn, also out of Emeryville Sport Fishing, going out on a salmon trolling trip for 7 salmon to 11 pounds for 14 anglers. Three boats out of Sausalito fishing south of the Golden Gate near Pedro Point for 29 salmon to 20 pounds for a combined 47 anglers.  The Salty Lady was chasing whales but has been seeing simalir scores of under a fish per rod to just over of mostly big spawners averaging 12 to 17 pounds.

Rockfishing was a better option with Captain James Smith of the California Dawn opting for the Marin coast on Sunday due to the rough weather conditions, and they returned with 20 limits of ling cod along with 3/4th limits of rockfish.



“Millions of Californians on hook for water plan”
Read at our website.

Today, The Associated Press published a story confirming rumors of “expanded funding demands” for the Delta Tunnels proposal. New documents obtained by the Associated Press reveal that dozens of local agencies representing millions of Californians may be required to pay for the tunnels, even though they have not been asked to participate in the project, nor would they receive the “supply reliability” benefits promised to CA WaterFix participants. This follows years of assurances from the Brown Administration that only local water agencies actively participating in the tunnels would be the paying for them.
A telling quote from Santa Clara Valley Water District board director Richard Santos reveals that State Water Project contractors have been pressured into participating in the tunnels project.

Ellen Knickmeyer and Scott Smith write, 
“Asked if California intended to cut off state water deliveries to those districts that refuse to help pay for the tunnels, Lien-Mager said only ‘opting out would not affect their existing contracts, but their actual water supplies from the SWP could become less reliable in the future.’
That message has begun trickling out as water agencies around the state decide whether to raise rates to pay for the tunnels.
‘That’s what we’re being informed — our contract ends if we don’t participate,’ said Richard Santos, a board member of the Santa Clara Valley water district, which supplies water to Silicon Valley.
If it plays out that way, Santos said, he will fight. ‘If they say they’ll cut off our allocations if we don’t participate, then let the courts take it on,’ he said.”
