Fishing Seasons


Guided sport fishing in the San Juan Islands for salmon, halibut, lingcod, and crab.

The sport fishing seasons in the San Juan Islands vary from year to year, so it’s best to talk to Jim personally to see what is available. Every season provides different opportunities for sport fishing in the San Juan Islands. Normally Blackmouth (juvenile king salmon) are the target in the winter months. Spring Chinook or King salmon are fished from July through November. Silvers (Coho salmon) arrive late July providing good sport fishing through October. Halibut season varies but it normally opens in May. Lingcod are fished May and June, and bottomfishing is open year-round. This is a great hands-on fishery with lots of action!


Two yellow eye Rock Fish, just ounces from a state record, were caught while filming an infomercial for Flying Lures.
