Newport Fishing Trip

I was fortunate enough that Greg invited myself and Howie to go Salmon fishing off the Newport Coast.  Greg & Howie are also Camp Hosts here at Seal Rocks RV Cove.  We left early in the morning and the weather was almost perfect, with calm waters.  I was the only one lucky enough to catch a fish that day, but it was still a lot of fun.

5 pound Silver Salmon (Coho)

We caught a pretty full cage of Dungeness Crabs (6 keepers)

Our dinner that night (Salmon, Au-gratin Potatoes & Salad).  The fresh salmon was delicious

This wasn't part of the fishing trip, but I wanted to include Linda
And this guy we saw while kayaking Beaver Creek.  He's actually not a beaver, but a Nutria (basically a River Rat)
