Noyo Fishing Historical Photographs

These historical photographs appear here with the gracious permission of David Figueiredo and his family. The snapshots reflect the bounty of the Northern California Pacific Ocean and the men, women, and boats who worked these waters during the hayday of fishing out of Noyo, California, in the 20th Century. Featured in these photographs is the fishing vessel Debbie Marie. She was the last boat to be built by the Makela brothers, Fred and Nick, at their Makela Brothers Boat Works at Noyo River basin. The Debbie Marie was owned and fished by highliners Art and Ernest Figueiredo. Between 1941 and 1976, the Makela brothers hand built 14 classic wooden fishing boats, such as the Sea Wolf (1949), that is still being fished today. For more information on this era and these master boatbuilders, see an article in WoodenBoat by Michael and Debbie McMenemy, "Fishermen and fish-boat builders," Number 171, April 2003.
