Jorgensen to teach local fishing secrets

By Soren Velice

Jim Jorgensen has a fish story or two he’d like to share with local sport fishers.

Jorgensen, who has operated a charter service for 34 years, is conducting his “salmonar” for the 26th year. “I not only enjoy fishing,,but sharing things with people”, he said. “It’s fun sharing ideas with people and it’s fun listening to their ideas.”

The six-session class meets on Mondays 7 to 9 p.m. at the high school starting March 26 to learn how to read charts, tie knots, outfit a boat and use different methods such as mooching, jigging and downrigger trolling. “People have felt it was beneficial in catching fish, rigging up a boat, learning places to go and what tackle to buy,” Jorgensen said. “I can’t say I’ve had anyone say they wish they hadn’t taken the class.”

The class will also discuss different species, salmon habitat and political facets of salmon preservation. One session, led by local fisherman Steve Jones, will also focus on bottom fishing.

To reserve a spot, call Jorgensen at 332-6724. Cost is $70.
