Is duck season still open? Unfortunately no... I saw the same thing recently. Last year I found the remains of what would have been a solid 10. Its truly unfortunate how the D is taking such a decline between the spraying/pellets & sea lions. It's still an amazing fishery but a shell of itself.

If the temps rise it'll improve the reaction bite. The fish are around, just tight lipped. The bite window is small and presentation is everything. If it's not really close you aren't getting bit. The spawn will proceed regardless. Clarity doesn't effect the fish, just the fisherman. That said I boa...
