PACIFIC SALMON: BRITISH COLUMBIA: Chinooks due at Nimkish and OG next two weeks; FG at most other spots and OG through Labor Day, then starting to taper off gradually; last week's top fish 58 pounds (Comox), 56 (Campbell), 53 (Nahmint); fall run of cohoes starting to show, with FG off Cape Mudge, Pender Harbor, Qualicum Beach and parts of Texada Island; should improve steadily next two weeks as northern fish of 15 pounds and over show up in catches.
CALIFORNIA: OG off Klamath River as 1,500 fishermen checked in at landings last week and trollers did big business. Golden Gate waters produced average of two salmon (to 30 pounds) per angler and OG; FF off Eureka and Monterey, spotty in Sacramento River.
RHODE ISLAND: Blues showing offshore in good numbers but playing hard to get with surf casters; OG if/when bait moves in to beach.
STRIPED BASS: MASSACHUSETTS: Night tides producing at Cape spots as fishing has eased off; OG through September.
OREGON: FF in Coos Bay area with trolled yellow jigs killing many bass in 40-pound class; fly-fishing with streamers and poppers also producing, and OG as runs increase; weather squally and rain gear essential.
CALIFORNIA: Trollers doing best in Carquinez Straits but no bragging fish reported; OF.
NORTH CALIFORNIA: Schooling bass appearing in brackish northeast Carolina sounds near Wanchese, Manteo and Kitty Hawk and fish to eight pounds showing in tidal rivers along coast; OG.
