Seattle in September

Recommended Posts

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.

    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
    • Very quiet so far.  Maybe one distant gobble on the roost but couldn't tell for sure. At least the mosquitos seem to have calmed down in the last 10 minutes some. 
    • Brotha’ you got that right.   Actually I’m cooking hobos over the campfire in Ely right now.  Not a bad second fiddle.   I won’t be a cooking hobo in a blind this weekend.
