July 6th-9th

Rain, rain, go away..come again another day! This seems to be the theme song of the summer so far, along with Celebrate by Kool and the Gang, of course! The weather here just cannot seem to decide whether its January or July. Thats okay though, it doesn’t stop the fish from biting! This weekend we had the Russell brothers reunite here at Sund’s, along with Craig’s sons Nolan and Taylor. Boris Mamchur brought his sons Mitchell and Steven from Saskatchewan. Kristin Ross brought her father Paul for one last fishing trip before heading back to Tokyo for a few years, and Eric & Cole Johannsen joined us from Washington State. We also had Jill and Ron Pair come to the lodge to celebrate their 40th anniversary! Thank you all for coming, we had a blast fishing with all of you! While we were waiting for Kenmore to fly in with this group of guests, our guide Keith said “it feels like a tyee kinda day,” and he was right! These guys went fishing for the afternoon on flat calm waters with sunny skies, and Randy Russell landed a 31 pound chinook within hours of arriving at the lodge! However, the nice weather soon turned to overcast skies and wet stuff started falling from the sky. The rain didn’t stop these guys (or the burger boat) on the second day of the trip though. There was a good halibut bite, and quite a few nice sized ‘nookies were brought back to the dock. Mitchell landed a huge 50 pound halibut on captain Ben’s boat and team Russell kept the crown with a nice 24lber caught by Kevin! Eric and Craig also got into some big hali’s during this trip, weighing in the low 30’s. The coho, pink and even chum are starting to show up too! Kristin finished up the trip with a bang when she caught a 25lber with Keith on the very last morning. We had an amazing trip with all of you, and we hope your trip was as memorable for you as it was for us! We hope to see you next summer 🙂
