As noted here last week, the every-other-year run of pink salmon is under way. The classic photo of pink-salmon fishing seems to involve people in waders on the beach at Lincoln Park – but an upcoming fishing tournament just will bring an entirely different view: Fishing from kayaks. Greg Whittaker at Alki Kayak Tours says the Northwest Kayak Anglers are presenting the “Humpy Kayak Classic” on August 17th, with its check-in station at Jack Block Park. It’s a benefit for Heroes On The Water Northwest; “Humpy” is a nickname for pink salmon, but if no one catches any that day, organizers will allow “a legally caught coho.” More details about, and rules for, the tournament can be found here – including how to register and how to pay. They’re asking for sign-ups by August 12th.
