salmon last week, mostly in 90 to 180 feet of water.
Port Washington anglers caught a few perch at the pier, and a
few browns in the harbor. Trollers were catching trout and salmon
in 100 to 180 feet of water, with kings and rainbows down 30 to 40
feet, cohos in 40 to 100 feet, or on the bottom for lakers.

at “the boils” and at the Oak Creek power plant. A few chinooks
