I fished 3 days this last weekend saw two fish being fought nothing landed, I never had a bite in three days. Fishing was really slow and the grass in the river was horrible bad. With that said I will try again this weekend hopefully they have to be coming soon.

I hope it gets better or the ocean lays down. We fished 4 rods per day I would have been so excited just to get a take down.

Thanks for the information, just one more question if you don't mind. Are you above or below or in the middle of big bend?

I fished all the water from 17 to the 101 bridge. I spent a lot of time right at the top of the big bend that's where the 200+ boats were.

Go To half moon Bay in Winchester Bay and throw large spinners there will be others there. There is some local bait shops that sale spinners to use there is a local version that is very popular. Every year there is several salmon caught from the beach from half moon bay to the entrance of the southern basin.

Better to fish with incoming tide (high) or does it really matter

Thanks for the info. I never fish the crowds. I don't do real well but I have less problems and have actually caught more fish that way. I have to wait until I clear with the doc on the 15th then I can go.

How About fishing low tide. Was thinking any water movement would be better then none
Usually the incoming tide is the best as it moves fish in with the tide as they move up river.

Hello all. Am hoping to take a couple of coworkers to Winchester Bay this coming Friday (the 16th), for their first attempts at crabbing. Anyone have any reports for how folks are doing off the docks? Also, I told coworkers that while pots are soaking I like to jig for herring if they are in. I'm even thinking about tossing curly tail jigs in the hopes of catching a flounder. Never caught one before, but a last year my youngest child caught a baby flounder while jigging for herring, so Im guessing that their might be some bigger ones around. And finally, a friend of mine said some coho were being caught from the bank now on spinners and such. Any current info (crabbing, herring, coho, and flounder) would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance :)

our neighbors did OK crabbing OFF the Whinchester crabbing dock during September, one day they got 18 keepers, they averaged probably 6 per trip for 2 people.
