Fish on – Salmon sport-fishermen posed with their prized catch aboard the Salty Lady charter boat out of Sausalito last year. The 2021 recreational salmon season along our coast runs from June 26 through October 31.  Photo provided

After much debate and deliberation, the California Department of Fish and Game have announced the 2021 start and end dates for recreational ocean salmon fishing season.  

Chinook salmon sport fishing in our coastal areas (from Point Arena to Pigeon Point) will be allowed from June 26 through October 31, seven days a week. The limit remains at two salmon per person per day with a minimum size of 20 inches. 

Coho (Silver) salmon remain illegal to catch and take locally.
