So far thru July 11th (Sunday) we have caught 14,103 Coho salmon out of our 120,000 fish quota.  That puts the percentage at 11.8% of the available quota caught.  Most of the fish caught are from Winchester Bay north which is helping us to keep the season open.  The south coast is hardly seeing any Coho salmon caught which is historically about right where they have more of a Chinook salmon catch.  Newport has the greatest number of fish caught as it has many more angler trips going out then any of the other ports..

Lets hope that things keep going for us here in Depoe Bay as a few of the skippers I have talked to who have chartered out of Depoe Bay for many-many years all say that this is the best salmon fishing we have seen in 30+ years.
