Salmon Bite off Ft Bragg
Eureka Breaks Open

Fort Bragg:
This port continues to see wide open action on Friday 7-11 for salmon with private boaters finding limits in 100 feet of water north of town off of Pudding Creek. The fish are large, and they have been biting straight bait, FBR’s, or watermelon Apex lures at depths to 60 feet. There have been a number of boats working the area, but there are salmon from Shelter Cove to Albion along the 100 foot line. Launching in the Noyo River on low tide has been dicey with the number of logs floating in the river.

Salmon fishing is on at Fort Bragg with the Ambush captained by Rick Thornton scoring limits for customers and crew on Sunday 7-6 morning north of the harbor with only three fish under 20-pounds to go with salmon at 31, 33, and 35-pounds. The fog has been thick, and private boaters are working the area south of the harbor and seeing limits as far south as Mendocino. Son Richard Thornton on the Trek II reported a slowdown in rockfish action with the school fish loading up on baby rockfish. The salmon are also stuffed with short-bellied rockfish.
