North Island Lodge Report: August 28, 2006
August 28, 2006 | 2016 Views
Fishing conditions continued to be very favourable this week with mild temperatures and only a few periods of drizzle and light winds. The eastern shore of Langara Island produced the most consistent results for chinook in the 20 to 30 pound range while guests also recorded good catches at Gunia and Boulder Bay also. Towards the end of the week, Green Point and surrounding hot spots outproduced the more popular areas for both coho and chinook. Tyee class fish are still being recorded, led by Fraser Baikie’s released 40 pounder. Jim Lambright was most pleasantly surprised when he hooked and landed a 40 lb. halibut on salmon gear in Bruin Bay! Several coho in the high teens were caught including a 21 pounder for Russell Smith. All four of our teenage guests earned their pins on our special "Relative Tyee" awards night. Congratulations to Taylor & Fraser Baikie and Kaitlyn and Melissa Poggemoeller. Good fun with a great group!
