Salmon Are Around


Despite grim news about ocean salmon fishing this summer, anglers can find good salmon fishing in freshwater or salt right now if they’re willing to look for it.

Possibilities include:

Chinook salmon - North Puget Sound, the San Juan Islands and the Strait of Juan de Fuca for blackmouth.

Steelhead - Skykomish River good for catch-and-release; Cowlitz River fair for small hatchery steelhead. Summer runs beginning to show in Kalama River.

Spring chinook - Lewis River reported good and getting better. xxxx Boat buyer’s guide Before you shop, get a free copy of “Guide to Buying and Selling a Boat,” from Boat/USA, Consumer Affairs, 880 S. Pickett, Alexandria, Va., telephone (703) 461-2864.
