Salmon fishing continues to be simply Awesome!
The past week has provided King Pacific Lodge Anglers with some exciting catches! Several big Tyee (Chinook over 30lbs) in the 40’s hit the dock with the largest a whopping 60 pounds! Congratulations Casey! Here, Jack with guide Tom show off a beautiful 56 pound Tyee taken at Cheney Point. (Jacks second fish was 41 pounds taken at McGuinness Island)
Aside from the extra large sized Chinook, Anglers have been catching a steady stream of 15 – 25lb Chinook. Coho have also been increasing in both abundance and average size. To date, the largest Coho is 18 pounds!
Our local hotspot of Cheney Point has been producing the best action. Fish are biting between 30 and 45ft. Spoons, hootchies, anchovy and large whole or cut plug herring have all been working well. Cape Mark, The Notch and Ivory Island lighthouse have all been producing as well. 5 inch herring, squid and needlefish are all local feed keeping the salmon focused o the Milbanke Sound fishing area.
We’re starting to see a little shorter days on the water now and guests can expect to be on the water just before 6am. This has usually provided the best bite in the day, often lasting several hours. Some Anglers have reported as many as 20 fish per morning. Excellent action!
Local wildlife abounds. Both Killer and Humpback whales, Seals, Sea Lions and several local Sea Otter have been entertaining guests on the water.
