Robin and Danny Clyde of Brookings were trolling anchovies out of the Port of Brookings Harbor on Wednesday when they caught a pair of Chinook salmon.

I keep telling my non-fishing friends that the salmon fishing in the ocean in this neck of the woods has never been better. They tell me that I have been saying the same thing every year. In actuality, I’ve only been making this statement with zeal for the last three years.

So when I say the salmon fishing is good, I have over three decades of experience to draw from. I truthfully do not know if we will ever experience another season as good as the one that is taking place at this very moment. I mean, it could happen next year, or it could happen 10 years from now — or it just could be never.
