Careful out there with this extended weekend of fishing! Wow, that's a lot of sea lions that far up the river!

Iím sure we will hear about this at commission meetings.
So far the biggest hurdle in sea lion removal has been federal bureaucracy.
No need to get wildlife activists involved.  :bash:

Went the last 3 days nadda. Water temp 44.5- 45 definitely warmer. Thinking about going Friday. With this rain could be fishing in a mud puddle
Hey! I'm not a complete idiot I have parts missing. Though sometimes I wonder.

My brother called yesterday, he's been seeing fish caught the last couple days. He hangs off the pilings over by the island where the Westport ferry comes out. Guide boat was there day before yesterday with 5 guys and got 3 fish, nothing big. My brother released a wild one yesterday. May be a good sign.

Weather has been very nice. Picking through the small ones to keep full limits every trip. Not a sea lion in sight😁

Back on! I have other responsibilities for this weekend so I won't be crowding any boat ramps. Good luck out there!
