Sausalito Herring Run

Today herring began to move into the Sausalito Waterfront area with spawn starting along along the rock wall.  Fish have been detected in the North Bay since last week, so this was not unexpected.

Commercial Herring Fleet, Sausalito

There were reports of spawning in Keil Cove and Belvedere Cove. Richardson Bay will also likely see spawn activity as this spawn continues.  The commercial fleet was visible from the roadway along the Sausalito waterfront.  As of late afternoon there were reports of mixed success, with hope for better catch on the late evening/early morning flood tide.
