From the Triplicate newspaper in Crescent City, it’s been a banner year for Pacific Ocean king salmon fishing – at least in the southern range for California. Here’s more from reporter Jessica Goddard:
“It was a good one,” acknowledged fisherman Richard Hagel of Crescent City, “(although) I don’t know if I’d term it one of the best. We’ve had some big years in the past, you know.
“But I would say that in recent history, it was the best season.”
