Washington's Hoodsport Hatchery has been one of the best known and most popular terminal chum fisheries since it began. In this video natetreat and I spent a day going from no fish at low tide to lights out fishing at high tide. Check out some great salmon action and see what this fishery is all about! Filmed Nov 7, 2011.

i bet you would have caught tons on a bobber and herring or anchovy also. Chums when stacked like that in the salt start to randomly crave baitfish. Oh and another question, are you able to hold out of the water and release because its a terminal fishery?
