Its that time of year again. The Squaxin Island Fishing Season is underway. In the past week we have had four to five fishermen out fishing Budd Inlet, Case Inlet,Dana, Pickering, and Peale Passages. Carr Inlet opened on August 1st.
Reports are that fishermen have been doing well in Carr Inlet. Budd Inlet is starting to pick up. Buyer prices started at $4 per lbs. Prices are expected to drop this week to $3.50 with Inner Budd Inlet fishery opening with the buyers expecting the fishery to produce darker Chinook.
