On the hunt year-round: A month-to-month guide to Washington salmon

Salmon live a nomadic life. Beginning their life in the gravel bed of some stream, they eventually migrate to the ocean where they cruise the blue depths of the vast Pacific Ocean in a hunt for food. Then, when the urge to spawn cannot be ignored, they return to their natal waters to complete the cycle. Salmon anglers are a nomadic bunch as well. This time of year, they can be seen hauling their boats to ports such as Westport and Ilwaco, in hopes of catching some early season chinook. As the season progresses, they’ll move to places such as the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the San Juan Islands.
