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.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
