Salmon season is in full effect in southeast this year. With the lack of a serious pink run, chum salmon are the hot species this year. The southern chum run has been strong at Kendrick, while the northern chum scene has been invigorated by Amalga Harbor. It’s the first chance seiners have ever had to fish this area. Typically, it’s a DIPAC hatchery program operated by a bidding process for only a few boats. Seiners will have one last chance to battle for Chum this Thursday. It should be quite a show. Good Luck, guys!
