Group 15 – Mixed Friends – August 1 to 4

Steve Miller, a long time friend and customer put together this group of family and friends who traveled to the lodge all the way from Oklahoma, Texas and Louisiana. All of the couples this weekend were full of fun and it was easy for everyone to get along and have a very exciting time.

Although the fishing remained a little slow for the majority of this trip the happy attitudes were infectious and along with the beautiful weather everyone kept in high spirits during the long days on the water. Our host, Steve Miller was able to snag and reel in a beautiful 32lb Tyee on the second day on the water while fishing with Captain Jim. This was the largest fish for this group even though everyone tried to top this catch for the rest of their time at the lodge.

Out on the water we are still waiting on another run of Southbound Tackle Busters to hit, and based on the number predicted earlier this year, many more Sockeye are still expected which is sure to bring much more action to the boats.

As the weather continues to be warm and sunny during the days, the water is calm and in perfect condition for fishing. However, we are beginning to wonder if some rain might bring a nice change to shake things up?
