saltwater salmon fishing
In the past several years the Bellingham Chapter of Puget Sound Anglers has donated a portion of its summer derby proceeds to Long Live the Kings, a non-profit organization founded more than 20 years ago, which continues to operate a private salmon production facility at East Sound on Orcas Island.
LLTK’s Glenwood Springs Hatchery produces mainly juvenile fall chinook salmon for release into the waters of the San Juan Islands, which find their way as they mature into both personal use (recreational) as well as commercial fisheries during the year.
Manager Mike O’Connell will talk about his facility’s operation and the contribution the organization’s salmon production makes to local fisheries at the Wednesday, March 21 Bellingham PSA meeting at Nikki’s Bella Marina Restaurant at Squalicum Harbor. The program portion of the PSA gathering begins at 7 p.m., attendees can gather beforehand between 6-7 to dine and chat. Everyone is welcome at PSA meetings.
Long Live the Kings accepts donation for its programs and can be found online at www.lltk.org.
