The Department of Fish and Wildlife begin delivering Chinook salmon smolt on Wednesday mornings, May 2  and again on May 9 and May 16.  The salmon are  kept in the pen 5 days and released into the ocean on the 6th day; smots are fed by an automated machine.

The net pen assembly is scheduled for April 28th at Pillar point Harbor Launch Ramp Half Moon Bay CA and will be disasembled and stored about a week after the last smolt delivery.   Volunteers are welcome to assist with this project, sign up with the Team on the Coastside Fishing Club web site.

The delivery of the smolt is accomplished at the end of Johnson Pier, Pillar Point Harbor usually after 10:30 am and the public is invited to watch.  Be sure to bookmark this page for next year's Salmon smolt project.  Please consider donating to help with this important Coastside Fishing Foundation effort.
