Salmon fishing off the Pender Bluffs

The pink salmon have been running off the Pender Bluffs and most boats are apparently getting limits there. We passed the bluffs yesterday while returning from the San Juan Islands in Washington State and it was certainly a busy place. Calm conditions and fishing in the sun, doesn’t get much better than that.

The air at this time is incredibly hazy with smoke over the San Juans as the photo below with Orcas Island in the background shows. A few large wildfires in Washington are to blame.
