North Island Lodge Fishing Reports

NIL Report: First Trips in the Books! – June 17, 2019

June 17, 2019 | 626 Views

Opening week has been an exciting and fishy one at North Island Lodge. With very notable fish retained and released, there was a good run of early season chinook that came through; a fantastic way to kick off the season.

Fishing has been hot on the east side of Langara which made up for the spotty bites that hit the Graham Island shoreline. While the quantity of fish have been caught at Coho and Andrews, the quality fish have showed up in Bruin Bay. Our two biggest fish to be caught by Jon Low and Kerry Hawley were recorded at 38 lbs each but our most exciting of tyees was caught by 11-year-old angler Ben Barstad weighing 32 lbs! Congrats to Ben!

A 38 lb tyee caught and released by guest Jon Low and Macgregor Johnston.

An impressive 32 lb tyee for 11-year-old Ben Barstad and guide Bryce Belyea.

Along with the notable tyees there were a handful of mid to high 20 lb Chinook caught as well as a “just by chance” 80 + pound halibut caught by Isser and Ben Rogowski on their salmon rod!

Ron Henze with a 33 lb tyee caught at Gunia Point.

Grandfather Bob and grandson Ben having the family trip of a lifetime!

In between bites, wildlife has been taking center stage with many humpback and orca sightings and of course bald eagles soaring overhead. So far it’s been a great start to the season and all of us at NIL are looking forward to the trips ahead. Keep checking back for regular reports on fishing, weather conditions and other exciting stories from around the lodge.

Tight Lines,
Macgregor Johnston, North Island Lodge guide
