Fishing continues to be very good at King Pacific Lodge! The weather has been fantastic and we have enjoyed calm seas and excellent catches.
Cape Mark and Cheney point have been the hot spots in the recent week. Anglers have also been fishing Ivory Island to the north with great results. We’ve been experiencing some large tides recently and this usually results in a better bite on the high or low tide.
Our favourite spoon lure, the Gibbs/Delta “Irish Cream” has been working very well trolled behind a red or green flasher. Anchovy baits have been producing with or without a flasher. We’ve had several guests working the tides and first thing in the morning “mooching’ cut plug herring and it seems no matter what we’re offering – the fish are biting.
Since opening on the 18th of June the Chinook have been plentiful and while most are in the high teens and low 20’s, we’ve had over a dozen “Tyee” (Chinook over 30 pounds).
Many of our guests have inquired into our salmon limits for 2018 and area 7 (Milbanke Sound) remains unchanged. Anglers may retain 4 Chinook salmon and 4 other salmon during their trip. Our professional fish processing crew is pleased to process this into any desired vacuum packaged size.
King Pacific Guests have also been enjoying the overall Milbanke Sound area’s other attributes. Kayaking amongst the sea otters was a hit with a family recently visiting from Switzerland. Viewing Killer Whales, Humpback Whales, Porpoise, wolves and bear have all been reported by our guests.
Several great dates remain in 2018. Please contact us for additional information.
Our 2019 calendar will be out soon. King Pacific Lodge will be changing to a Thursday / Sunday changeover schedule next summer. While many our dates will be filled with repeat anglers from this summer, we welcome the opportunity to review our schedule with new guests.
