This trip saw the return of the Manville, and Crown and Cork groups. The lodge was delighted to welcome back our friends, and we all had a great time. Weather continued to be challenging for first several days. High winds and rain create expected challenges. Everyone “duked” it out, and were rewarded with Chinook and Coho. Due to winds, the Halibut were tough to fish. Yet, Halibut were caught on Salmon gear at Gelina River.
I have been commenting in last few reports about lack of larger fish…it all changed yesterday when Brian Gregg caught a 40lber, and Jarrod Doherty caught a 63lb Chinook! Both were caught at Boulder Bay. The 63lber was caught on shallow rod, in twenty feet, with a chrome spoon. It goes without saying, the lodge is still buzzing! Great to see, and what a bright, beautiful fish it is.
Hope it continues this week…I’ll keep you posted
