I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: This place rocks! It’s a diverse saltwater fishery that’s still untapped. Why? I don’t know. Perhaps because it’s so far north nobody makes the effort to explore it. But I do know that it produces some great action for rockfish, flatfish, smelt, and much more. Let me push a button for you—fish it or miss the fun! See you on the water. Types of Fish: King salmon (chinook), silver salmon (off-limits for now), bottomfish (including rockfish, cabezon, lingcod, greenling, and starry flounder), leopard shark, jack smelt, surfperch. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping.
