Many of our recent guests have been pleasantly surprised by an un-precedented run of king salmon, so far this month. Guests including Steve & Denise Bubar, Dale Barnhart and Stewart & Susan Dalby choose to visit our lodge in August and September to take advantage of the silver salmon run. So far this summer the silvers have been slow to appear but the kings have adequately and surprising filled in for the late arriving silvers. While the kings we are catching are not the fully matured spawners they are running between 10 and 20 pounds on average with a few 30 – 40 pounders around to keep up the excitement.
The silver fishing has been steady but not spectacular so far. Halibut fishing has really been outstanding with catches of 40 -60 fish a day not uncommon. Most of the halibut are averaging around 30 pounds with an occasional 100 pounder mixed in.
Overall fishing could not get much better right now. many of our guests are complaining about sore arms yet they always manage to keep putting fish on the deck.
