The Outpost Fishing Reports

Outpost Update ~ July 5-9 "jackpot"

July 6, 2012 | 1079 Views

I’ve told OP guests that when its good at the Outpost it’s the best fishing in the world…nobody believes me until it happens.

Our guests had amazing fishing this week, good weather and great conditions…in short they hit the Jackpot and experienced fishing like it must have been at the turn of the century.

Here’s a rundown of the trip (in photos of course)…most mornings started like this…

Alessandro, Mark and Tony ready to run to the fishing grounds…

followed by this…

Double headers…as many as you wanted…all day. Above, Robin and David into a set of Chinooks.

Ken, Dilip and guide Sam enjoy the sun and fantastic fishing…

Ken, Bruce and Dennis getting trained up on a double…

Don’t palm that reel too much Dennis!

Chef Hawksworth “can’t handle the truth”…

Tony, Alessandro and “Oscar Yankee” (Ol’Yeller aka Chris) stick and stay and make it pay…

The result…

Big Halis caught and released.

As well as big Chinook releases, Gordie waits to release this borderline Tyee…

There were whale shows…

lots of fish love…

Dilip expereinces his first salmon close encounter.

The biggest of the trip was Ken’s 38 pound Tyee with guide Chris…

Which earned him at Tyee pin and a busted knuckle…

Don’t worry ken it will heal.

Back at the dock everyone was ecstatic…

Bruce, Shwan and Gordie with big smiles.

Robin can’t believe it…

…and has trouble helping Sam get the “fish to market”…

Ken & Eileen still fishing together after 40+ years of marriage…

A tyee for Tony…

The cleaning bench was busy…

Kelp bongs anyone?…

Which contributed to post lunch naps…

…by the fireplace and on the boats…

One afternoon there was an excursion out to an ancient first nations site by Tien…

Evenings at the lodge…

The guys came up for meet and greet…

Dewy, Peter, Chris and Mark.

KRUD was played…

…and Jordan passes on the green jacket to the first guest winner of the season…

Congrats Shwan!

The “last family style supper” was served tonight…

…and there you have it.

Truly a jackpot week…its not like this all the time but when it is its HARD to beat.

    Yes indeed – great fishing, great friends and great memories all wrapped up in THE BEST luxury wilderness experience this camper has ever had…and yes the food was from the gods as well. What else can we say other than “thank you” many times over, and there is a special delivery on it’s way to you and your crew in apprecition of all your efforts during that jackpot week. Cheers

  2. Best place on earth if you love fishing… and beautiful nature… and god food…

    Kenny ‘B’ ; you said it Man, “When it happens it is HARD to Beat!”
    That was a week of Historical proportions and it did feel like we were back in time, especially on the afternoon walkabout through the old village grounds. A magical week; thank the Gods we made the virgin sacrifice; or was it just a sacrifice? Either way he had to be sacrificed! We shall return, if not only to retain possession of the Green Jacket.
    Sharp eyes, our Breathern of the Black Watch!
