Salmon season is currently closed above Pigeon Point until June 13th. When it opens up again we'll be allowed to fish north of Point Arena and we are very excited to make some trips to Shelter Cove.
May turned out to be very poor fishing for salmon in California and we're all hoping the conditions will improve by the June 13th opener!
