The Clubhouse Fishing Reports

CH Report: Tyees Lurking & Lunker Northerns Biting! ~ August 20, 2016

August 22, 2016 | 870 Views

Hello again, on a darker fogged in very limited vis night here at The Clubhouse. Yes, August fog has rolled in again, plenty of visibility challenges out on the water the last couple days here at Langara.

A few nice fish rolled in during the last trip in here. I found a couple nice Tyee out on the Westbank with my group, below is a few pictures of some sunny days, with calm waters and two very nice Tyees. We grabbed these fish fishing tight to the kelp, fishing shallow, in amongst oodles of bait fish.

We of course released these Tyee sized fish, but chose to retain some mid twenties, for eating purposes. Below is a pic of my guest with one such fish, these are in prime shape, very tasty spring Salmon, nothing better.

The Coho the last couple days has been fantastic. There is a school on the east side that contains lots of 11 to 16 lbers, with 12 and 13 lb fish common. Korey is the Coho champion this trip with a nice pair of 16 lbers. We are still registering Tyees, with three in the low thirties today from a variety of places. Offshore Andrews is busy with Coho action, and mid high teens Chinook. Plenty bites all up and down the east side. We do tend to fish off the beach here to avoid lions and it works somewhat.

I have no idea how long the Coho will stick around in this size range, but it is a nice thing to see healthy stocks traveling by. The Chinooks should continue on being abundant and yesterday was a very good day out on the chuck. Our fish cleaners have been very busy this trip, it has been great fishing this week.

So until next week, that is the report here at Langara. Time for bed and tomorrow the search continues for the monsters here in Chinook ground zero, goodnight from the bunkhouse.
