These four names all belong to the one species of Pacific Salmon

The Chinook Salmon name i believe came from a Salish village on the Columbia River. Spring Salmon is because some runs of Chinook arrive in the Spring. Blackmouth is the term used because of the Chinooks Black gums and tongue and finally the name King Salmon,i just found out is when the Explorer William Dall Wrote in 1865 that ” Chowichee of the Yukon are the King of Salmon. We probably could add ” Stinky” as well LOL…. and yes we got Stinky ( lucky) yesterday after a quick shakedown trip .Here are the hot-spots…

  • Coho Pt to Marshall Rock (humps just North of Marshall Rock)
  • Grants Northwest Corner not Bad
  • The Spit of Harwood (North -East side)

I have not had any recent reports of other areas but my guess is that the usual places will hold fish, if not keep moving till you find them .After dropping our Crab traps at Harwood we decided to take a rip out to Grant Reefs. We started at the can with no luck then moved to the North West Corner (Tyee Pt) and hooked 3 Chinook and Kept 1 Beauty .The weather was unbelievable so if you get a chance get out there. If you like Crabs, decent numbers at Harwood yuuuuuum.
