Wonderful July fishing




As we enter the fourth week of the 2016 season, King Pacific Lodge anglers continue to enjoy excellent catches.

The past week has gifted us with excellent weather and calm winds.  Soft south and  west are sharing both sunny skies and clouds with the odd downpour of rain.

Most salmon, both Chinook and Coho, have been caught using either spoons or anchovies – mostly run behind a rotating flasher. The “Skinny G” by Gibbs/Delta tackle has been the hot lure and producing.

Hot spots have been focused on the southern range of Milbanke Sound – along the shoreline of Cape Mark.  This mornings tide created awesome opportunity with one boat reporting over 12 salmon by 8am.

Bottom fish have been in good numbers. Ling cod, Halibut and  Rockfish have been showing in good numbers.


Aside from the great fishing, the local wildlife population has been active and creating quite a stir. A pod of over 20 Orca (Killer Whales) has been back and forth every few days.  Today there were multiple breaches and sightings within five minutes of the lodge. Porpoise and Sea Otters were also common this week.

We’re appreciative of the guests who visit the lodge. Of note several international and domestic family groups from as far away as Brazil, Ecuador and all over the US and Canada.

Should you be thinking of a trip for 2017 or even towards the early September period of this year we’d welcome the opportunity to discuss options. Should you be booked in now for this year, and require additional information please contact us anytime.
