Salmon fishing has been good in the San Juan’s, depending on the day, time, and tide. Schools of Chinook are moving through, you just have to land on them to have a shot. These Kings can be anywhere from 60 ft of water, to 300 ft. And just about that same spread in the water column.
As far as gear, the Silver Horde Kingfisher Lite’s in 4” Irish Cream have been working for us.
