King Pacific Lodge guests have been enjoying some excellent fishing!

This past week has produced an abundance of beautiful Chinook in the 15-20 pound range. Several Tyee over 30 pounds have been weighed in  with the largest 43 pounds. Coho are showing in good numbers and we anticipate this to be an excellent year for these salmon. While most are in the 5-8 pound range we have had several over 10 pounds.

Two guests have already weighed in Tyee this morning and the word is Cape Mark was “on fire’ from first light.

Cape Mark, Cheney Point and Cheney II have all been producing. Our guides and guests have been reporting massive schools of needlefish bait which seem to be holding the interest of the migrating salmon. The weather and sea conditions have been very favourable with the odd breezy afternoon or short term SW Winds.

Halibut, Ling Cod and other bottom fish have been plentiful. We have been travelling a little ways for the best action on these and it has certainly been worth the trip.

The forecast for the coming week is very favourable with light to moderate winds and calm seas. For future information this link will provide our local area forecast:




Its been a pleasure to see so many returning guests to the lodge this year. We are looking forward to visiting with all booked guests in the near future.

Should you still be considering a fishing trip for 2019 please contact us anytime. Several prime dates are available during what is turning out to be a fantastic season!

Kindest Regards
