King Pacific Lodge anglers have been enjoying excellent catches of Chinook salmon within minutes of the lodge.
Our last trip produced five ‘Tyee Chinook” over 30 pounds with the largest being 36 pounds. Most other Chinook were in the 15-20 pound range. Coho are here and there with the largest around 9 pounds.
Anchovie and Flasher seem to be the popular bait. Purple hoochie and UV Glow flashers are also working well.
Cheney Point, Cheney 2 and Cape Swain have been the hot spots. The bite has mainly been very early in the morning with fewer fish in the afternoons. We often see this pattern swing around and at times the afternoon tide is better than the morning.
For those interested in bottom fish, we’ve had good success with all species such as Ling, Halibut and Rockfish.
We are enjoying the lighter winds and while drizzly and cloudy – the fishing conditions have been near perfect.
