Good deal. I will be out there again soon.

Very pleased that the MA-19 quota is below 10% still

I see that the weekend catch estimates for the weekend catch of Chinook in MA 9 & 10 are posted on WDFW's web site

http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/reports_plants.html

Through the weekend approximately 29.5% of the MA 9 quota and 7.6% of MA 19 quota were caught!

Dimebrite -
As you know the Chinook catch in MA 10 typically picks up sometime next week so I would expect that the fishery in MA 10 should be in good shape until MA 9 closes (later part of July?) then with the divert effort the MA 10 catches will soar. Finger crossed that you maybe able to fish through the first week of August.

I'll be low holing you guys while in area 11. plan to go Sunday evening. king fishery typically peaks by early/mid-August. sound like most fish being caught are on the smaller size.

Well, on our boat ride Thursday my buddy and I certainly didn't add to that 7.6% figure for MA10!

We left the fly gear at home and were mooching herring. Tried a number of areas with no luck outside a few little 8 to 12-inch followers as we got close to the surface.

Saw very little evidence of bait around.

OTOH, for those fans of the Squalus family of fishes (http://www.washingtonflyfishing.com/forum/threads/any-dogfish-caught-recently-in-puget-sound.119029/), we did find a few spots where they were plentiful! ;)

I was able to fish off Vashon for the evening. Started off strong with shakers taking the hoochie/squid combo. 3 small shakers right off the bat and then it just flat lined for the rest of the evening. Oh well, I did not have high expectations and all my gear worked - so that was a win.

The last couple days it looks like in MA 9 both catch rates and effort is down some. Would not be surprised to the fishery to last through the weekend.

On the down side while MA 10 has not been as good as MA 9 the fishing has improved in a couple area. In addition it is the norm to see an upswing in Chinook catch rates in the last week of July/early August so could burn through the 10 quota fairly quickly once 9 closes.
