Kind salmon catch rates fall as run winds down
The Golden North Salmon Derby last weekend had a variety of boating weather and a large winning king (36.9 pounds). But the number of fish entered (approximately 200 king and 1,000 coho salmon) was one-half the usual number of the respective species entered in recent years. The coho and halibut fishing in the Juneau area remained fair at 15 and 12 rod hours per fish, respectively, although both catch rates are roughly twice their five-year averages. Catch rates for king salmon decreased last week to above 100 rod hours.
