Early August Recap: Birthdays, Whale Sightings, and the Neighborhood Bear

King Pacific Lodge guests have been having an excellent time on the water! Flat calm seas, great fishing, fun and camaraderie all make for an exciting vacation.

The past few days have produced some incredible action on the water. Cheney Point, Cape Swain, McGinnes Island and Louisa Cove have all been producing. Depths have ranged a little more. Fish have been found as shallow as 25ft early morning to sometimes over 150ft. Baitfish have been very abundant along the west side of Athlone Island recently (Cheney) and this has really held fish. Anchovy and flasher, Spoons and whole Herring have all been productive lures.

Coho, Chinook, Halibut and Ling Cod have all been regular and abundant catches.

We’ve had some exciting times at the lodge recently. Our good friend Jack Richardson celebrated his 70th birthday and much fun was had. And, he caught a Tyee (Chinook over 30lbs) to make it even better. Happy Birthday Jack! We all enjoyed the fireworks show.

Wildlife sightings continue with Killer Whales, Humpback, Sea otter and many more. Our local resident Bear “Miso” was spotted this morning behind the lodge and decided to go for a swim across the bay in search of treats along the far shoreline.

With all the action around the lodge I wanted to take the time to say Thank-You to our fantastic crew. We have enjoyed a safe, productive summer and their efforts have been noticed by all guests. On the maintenance side of things, we’ve been

working hard to ensure all boats are functioning properly and to date we have had no breakdowns on the water or downtime related to engine and boat issues.

Its been fantastic to see so many familiar faces at the lodge this summer. We’re so pleased to have so many guests joining us year after year. Thank you for the support!

Dates for 2020 are already filling in quickly. Should you have a specific time period in mind for next year please contact us anytime. And, the last remaining spots in 2019 are running September 01-05. This is a great time slip away for a trip before the kids are back in school!

The weather forecast for the next few days features calm seas, light southerly winds shifting to moderate westerlies. We expect perfect conditions for fishing!
