Good silver fishing can usually be had by the end of July throughout the Arm and Narrows area and exceptional fishing in the Port by the 1st or 2nd week of August. The fishing can then be great through Labor Day with many fish in the 10 to 15 pound range and some at 20! Early in the run a boat is required to catch silvers and downriggers are by far the best way to troll. As the run comes in closer, silvers can be caught from shore at Allison Point and on the city side around the mouth of the small boat harbor.
Silvers can be caught from shore in town along Kelsey Dock or at Allison Point on Dayville Road.
