Group 14 – Mixed Friends – July 28 to August 1

This past week was another 5 day trip at the lodge which ended way too fast. Such a fun group of a few families with some old and new friends that everyone was sad to say goodbye to.

Again, the fishing was steady although still slow for Chinooks. On the first afternoon Leslie brought in the only one weighing in at 15lbs. For the days that followed a few more were brought back to the dock although we are still searching for that Tyee! Luckily though, this was made up for with fast and furious fishing of Pinks and Cohos. Also, as of the first of August Sockeye is open which is sure to bring even more action to the days spent on the water – with a limit of four per day!

After another quick changeover we have now welcomed a group of couples to the lodge who have their eyes set on big fish. As the weather here contiues to be amazing with calm seas, blue skies and sunshine, we are looking forward to a weekend filled with friendly – but intense – competition.
