Seattle in September

5 posts in this topic

I plan to be in the Seattle area during the later part of September. I will basically be on my own for a few days as my wife will be attending a seminar.

Looks like you can jump on a charter boat for Salmon fairly easy there on the coast, but I was also thinking perhaps taking a side trip to the Columbia for Sturgeon and or Walleye.

I would appreciate info anyone might have about fishing in the area or perhaps suggestions or recommendations.

Please do not post any contact info for guides though. Thanks

it all depends on how far you want to go. you can drive out to westport and take a charter out in the ocean or theres the pugdet sound that has charters or find one that will go up the snoqualmie river. the salmon should be running in sept.

I will be on the Columbia this weekend going after the 400+ lb sturgeon. Been out there 3 times doing that. You will need a guide for the Columbia but I think the sturgeon season is about done by then. From what I recall, May thru July and sometimes into August are good. I don't know if they close it down but you could check the Oregon fish and game. I believe most guides change gears and target the salmon on the ocean come August and Sept. I will try to quiz my guide this weekend and let you know. He is top notch so when you get closer I would be happy to get you his info. if you are interested.

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
