After a two-week pause, Monterey Bay salmon season started up again on June 16 and continues till June 30, and is joined by the opening of the season northward up to Point Arena. https://wildlife.ca.gov/Fishing/Ocean...
Prices were very high in May when fish were scarcer than predicted. The exciting news now are reports of schools of King salmon off the coast for easy and abundant harvest. Prices in Monterey Bay and the San Francisco Bay Area have dropped dramatically to $10 to $12 per pound for whole fish purchased directly off the boats in Monterey, Moss Landing, Santa Cruz, Pillar Point and Berkeley harbors with sizes in the 10 to 20-pound range. After payment, the fishers can fillet them for you, usually at no extra charge, so go in with a friend on a purchase or stock your freezer. Some accept Venmo and others only cash. Bring a cooler and ice.
