Elger Bay Grocery & Gifts

THE place for everything Fishing & Crabbing around Camano Island

Fishing Report 10/31/2012

First of all: I apologize for the lack of reports lately, we’ve had a series of family emergencies the past month and a new baby that have kept me from my usual routine. Thank you for your patience and I hope you’ve had at least some time to do some fishing and/or crabbing.
Aside from the unpredictable weather, this Fall and Winter should prove fruitful for Puget Sound Anglers and Shellfishers. Crabbing is open now through December 31st in most areas of Puget Sound(and yes, the areas around Camano are included in that). Also, Winter Blackmouth opens on November 1st and is open through April 30th. Daily limit is 2 combined Chinook/Coho, must release wild Chinook. Coho fishing in the Puget Sound and rivers is pretty much died down but look for some stragglers and Steelhead in those rivers.
 
Join our 4th Annual Running Winter Blackmouth Derby:
 
Cost: Just $10 per person!
Who: All anglers, regardless of age. In fact, everyone in your boat must be entered for your fish to count, even kids, to prevent cheating.
When: November 1st – April 30th (Winter Blackmouth Season). Sign up RIGHT NOW at Elger Bay Grocery. You can join the derby at any point in the season, just as long as you sign up before you go fishing; catching a fish then signing up is cheating!
Where: Hatchery Chinook(Blackmouth) from Marine Areas 8-1, 8-2 and 9 are allowed to be weighed. Bring fish to Elger Bay Grocery for weigh-in 6am-9pm, 7 days per week. Limit 1 fish per person per day but you can weigh a fish everyday that you catch one. 
Prizes: Cash for 1st place and a mystery weight, special prize for the most fish weighed in throughout derby duration so weigh every Blackmouth you catch!
Rules: All WDFW rules and regulations must be followed. Elger Bay Grocery is not responsible for injuries or accidents. A chart will be up inside store with current standings so come by often to check it out.
