CH Report: Summer Has Arrived! ~ June 23, 2016

June 23, 2016 | 988 Views

A very nice day here at Langara, flat seas and yes, its warm out there!

Fishing has been decent, with five Tyees on the current trip,top fish weighed in at 35 lbs. This fish was angled out west on Tuesday. Two Tyees came in from Poppoff point, Ivor Jones strikes again, well done. Bruce Keltie snuck a 32 in from the West Bank, fishing with Larry, and guided by Rodney. Bruce has supported us here at Langara since 1990!

Fishing over the last week has been good, but we are working hard to find the size when it comes to the Chinooks. The size has increased since the end of May, when we opened. That said, 17 to 20 lbs is a nice fish, with the mid twenties being on the larger side. My top guided fish this trip came in at 26, and I am including a pic of the slightly torn head. We were lucky with this one, literally pulling it out of a sea lions mouth. The lion ran off with it, but I managed to rev my engines up , do some donuts, and tight line the fish into the net. The lion literally spy hopped the boat in disappointment at the outcome. That lion was one foot off the gunnel three feet out the water scratching its head wondering whats up and how he blew it.

So we do win some off these battles, one reason we are fishing out west a lot this season.

The previous trip I fished the gang from Kansas City, the Wentling group. We had some good days and grabbed a number of mid twenties out west, below is a few pics of some happy customers. We were grabbing the fish on the shallower side, as deep as 60 feet. Some of the guides are running around the corner into Lepas Bay, and finding more action, but smaller Chinook in and around the beaches. Owen lost what the guides call a seat puncher, a fish lost at the side of the boat. Figured high 30’s, he will tell you the story if you see him on the dock.

Below is a pic of our supply boat doing its thing bringing special treats out to our guests on the final afternoon. Greg is the captain, Rebecca the host, and Chelsea the worlds best yellow lab bringing cheer to all of us. What a nice service, we never go hungry out there.

So to sum up, no huge run of big fish yet, but steady fishing and with the huge amount of bait around, things will be improving daily. The weather has turned over to a summer pattern, afternoons the last two days saw tee shirts and no long underwear . The water has calmed and yes it is fantastic out there on the chuck and back in the lodge in the evenings, it does not get dark this time of year!
