Salmon fishing in the strait

The salmon fishing season opens on July 1 in fishing area 6, eastern Strait of Juan de Fuca. How to fish for king, coho and sockeye salmon in this area is the topic of discussion at the Thursday, May 15, meeting of the North Olympic Peninsula Chapter of the Puget Sound Anglers Club.

Millions of sockeye will be coming down the strait at the end of July, beginning of August for the best fishing in four years, meeting organizers say.

Fishermen will be allowed to retain two sockeye in addition to the daily quota of king and/or coho. Learn special techniques for catching sockeye in the strait.

The meeting is at 6:45 p.m. at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 Blake Ave., Sequim. See
