A few weeks ago the salmon fishing was fantastic. Big salmon are still being caught but the pace has slowed down. Carolyn André was at the Point Arena Pier during the fishing bonanza. There are a lot of boats - big and small - fishing off Arena Cove.
You can see people fishing right off the pier. No license is required to fish here but people do have to abide by Fish and Wildlife rules. Boats have to be hoisted down from the pier and that created quite a wait during the salmon run.
Below is a view of the cove to the south.
Today there is a big Seafood Festival at the pier. It's quite a fun event and, yes, there is fresh seafood cooked while you wait. I'll stand in line for their fish tacos!
Thanks to Carolyn for allowing me to share her photos with you here.
