This week on the water


How about fresh salmon and crab for dinner? We have had some good trips lately fishing the calm waters of the sound for salmon. These fish are smaller than our summer salmon but are a treat this time of year. The crabbing has picked back up in the harbour after a rather slow summer and has been producing consistent success. looking for a great way to spend the day? How about doing some fishing and then relaxing in the hotsprings? Give us a call for more details and winter rates.

The trick in the fall is to hit the calm between the storms, and if you can, there are some good fishing options available. Ling cod, Rockfish and the odd Halibut have been hooked on recent trips to the reefs west of town, a good way to get some fish for the winter. Feeding Chinook Salmon have been in good numbers off Long Beach, smaller fish (6-15lb) but great eating. We have some good freshwater options including fly in and drive/ walk & wade, flyfish for Steelhead and trout. Give us a call for a weather report and we will see what we can put together for you.

A strong high pressure system has set in bringing us some terrific September weather. The river drift is at its prime this time of year, Coho salmon and trout are abundant and water levels are good after the recent rain. If you were ever considering taking a trip down the river in our raft or kayaks now is the time. On the saltwater we are experiencing top notch Coho fishing with most fish exceeding 10 pounds and some pushing 15. Bottom fishing remains solid into October.
