The Clubhouse Report: June 16, 2011
June 16, 2011 | 1530 Views
Hello again from Langara, where the June fishery continues to be productive. Fishing has slowed off for Chinook, although the coho have began to trickle in, 4 to 7 lbs already. Halibut remains strong, weather permitting, so things are good here at the Clubhouse.
Size is increasing as well, with 14 tyees on the last trip. Largest for the trip was a 40 release for Ivan Curic, with 33 lbs being the average sized tyee. The fish are again spread out, and all guides are working all the tacks looking. The Andrews area seemed to be a popular one, as out west has dried up. The east side of Langara continues to have our sea lion friends wolf down the occasional fish, always a bit of frustration when it happens to be on your line, always fun to watch on a fellow anglers boat.
We are finding most of the fish in the top 60 feet of water, and shallow seems better. Our stern positioned mooching rods are producing well, and with the coho moving in things can be busy. We are also being fooled by foul hooked chum, pinks and the midwater Halibut out at Lacy.
The Lodge was plugged with Boston fans last night, funny how that works. I was fortunate my allegiance is to the Flyers, the pain was a bit easier to take. Several guides were seen mouth breathing with blank stares, others proclaiming they are now Leaf fans, things were ugly for a bit around here I tell ya. Tomas Kaberle has a cup, looks good on our Leafers!
We are just heading out here on a Thursday morning, with our new guests, so anything notable and I will post later, thanks for checking in.
