Recreational fishermen, guides and a handful of weekend warriors all began gathering at the Hammond Marina beginning last week for the start of the Buoy 10 salmon season. The boats typically take to the water before the sun comes up. After a few skillful cuts with a sharp knife at a cleaning station, a long line of happy clients hauled the bright red salmon fillets back to their vehicles, destined for the freezer back home.
