Group 18 – Mixed Families and Friends – August 11 to 15

Today, marked the end of our final five-day trip of the Summer! This group of 18 – including kids, parents, new and old friends – had a time at the lodge that will be hard to forget. Along with the weather, the fishing was hot and everyone went home with full boxes of Salmon and Halibut!

Our King on the first night was Dave who got a spot in the chair with his 11lb Coho! However, his reign didn’t last long and the next night Erich was in the hot seat after bringing in a 23lb Chinook. On Thursday, the biggest fish of the trip, weighing in at 25lbs, was brought back to the dock by Bill, who even showed us a smile when he was crowned.

All of the kids this week at the lodge made it an exciting one for everyone! Fishing off the dock one afternoon, Avery Sund brought in a Pink Salmon and Porter Case reeled in his first ever Chinook which won him a trophy for the biggest ‘kid’ fish of the trip!

All in all, each of our guests had a great time fishing out on the water and no one went home empty handed. The Case family of four were our big winners going home with a total of 26 Salmon! We are very excited about all the fish that are arriving at the dock each day and know that there will be many more to come with the rest of our guests this Summer.
