THE place for everything Fishing & Crabbing around Camano Island

Fishing Report 8/21/2010

Time is running out… Summer Dungeness Crabbing is almost over! It will be open Wednesday through Saturday next week, and then Wednesday through Monday on Labor Day weekend. Still 2 pots per person, 5 crab per person per day, 6 1/4″ min., hard-shell males only.

Coho are just starting to round the bend of Whidbey Island; anglers are reporting scattered sightings/landings of Silvers at Possession Bar. So it will be another couple of weeks before we start to see a good showing of them around Camano Island as they make their way to the Skagit & Stilly rivers. That being said, there is always a chance you can land the stray Silver Salmon at many of the popular Camano Spots(Elger Bay, Onamac Pt, Greenbank, Camano Head or Rocky Pt to name a few).

Anglers are still having success catching Kings at both the Tulalip Bubble and Possession Bar. Several 8lb – 15lb keepers have been brought in these past 2 weeks from both of these spots. Most success seems to come from White Lightning or Cookies & Cream spoons and green or purple spatter-back squids & flys. Whatever you use, make sure it is UV/Glow and put lots of Herring scent on it to maximize your chances! Troll at 65-80 ft deep behind a Purple Haze, UV Green, Green Glow or Army Truck 11″ flasher.
