Mid-August Recap: Another Great Fishing Trip!

“Wow! Another great trip!”

That’s a common phrase we are hearing from returning King Pacific Lodge guests. We’re so pleased to see so many guests fishing with us year after year. Milbanke Sound continues to produce excellent fish and lasting memories. 

During the last week we have entertained a number of family trips including youngsters out for their first fishing experience. On top of the great fishing the wildlife has been amazing. Whales, Sea Otter, Bears – all seem to be enjoying the summer as much as we do.

Fishing continues to be great along the west side of Athlone Island. Cheney, Cape Swain, Cape Mark have all been producing. Fantastic schools of baitfish and squid continue to be abundant and surely holding the fish close by. Popular baits and lures include any variety of Anchovy, Herring, Flasher and spoons either with or without a flasher. The surface temperatures are warmer than usual (Bringing with it some very odd fish such as Sunfish and Blue Shark) and we are fishing deeper than normal at 80 – 100ft. 

Winds and weather have been very tolerable. A little wind and rain have been fairly normal for this time of year and all guests have been comfortable on the water.

We’re expecting the great fishing to continue well into September. It’s interesting to note several of our very best trips over the past few years have been the last few of the season. Chinook, Coho all seem to love this area as much as we do.

Should you be booked in already, we’re looking forward to seeing you soon. And, for all of those who have fished with us so far this season Thank You! We appreciate your decision to stay with us. 

The 2020 season is already shaping up and if you have a specific date in mind for next season be sure to contact us soon.
