    I cant believe its taken that long for it to get out!
    I'm predicting that this season will be about on par as last, but we wont get that late season lull where the salmon out of bodega disappeared for a month cuz the water got ridiculously clear. And I'm predicting that the salmon are going to be bigger. There was an ungodly amount of feed in the water...there are going to be many more 30-40lb fish hitting the deck in bodega this year than last. I dont know if there even was a 40lb salmon reported out of bodega.

    Krill is already stacking up at the edge of the hole...whales are already there. All those jacks last year should be nice keeper size this year. Can't see it being a bad season.

    I'm moving from Ensenada Baja California, to Bakersfield then on to the Delta area. Where are some good places to fish for salmon, also are there party boats, or does one need to charter?
    Thanks

    Bill,
    Early in the season any of the 3 ports in Monterey Bay will offer excellent salmon fishing, then when June comes along HMB, GG, and Bodega will experience great fishing. Do you have your own boat? If you do I'd highly recommend fishing on a 6 pac boat. The 6 pacs will fish just like you will on your own boat so you'll be able to learn a lot more.

    I read on USAfishing.com that a party boat was fishing Sand Dabs out of Bodega and caught 2 Salmon weighing in the teens. This was about 3 weeks ago.

    I went online at the DFG(W) and found the link to the material presented at last nights meeting(thursday 3/1) on salmon. From what I could gather it looked like the run was predicted at 800 000+ for sac and 700 000+ for Klamath. Those look to be some big numbers. I hope I read through the material correctly.
