The Outpost Fishing Reports

The Outpost Report: April 5, 2010

April 5, 2010 | 1352 Views

OUTPOST UPDATE: I’ll start this week with a little good news on the plight of Pacific North West Chinook Salmon. Abby Haight of The Oregonian writes:

Spring chinook salmon forecast for the Columbia River is strongest in 70 years

Columbia River fisheries managers are predicting the largest return of spring chinook salmon since 1938, even after adjusting the model they had used for predictions in past years. The projected run of 470,000 spring chinook is a big leap from last spring’s final count of 169,300 adult fish.”

WOW, that would be great! The Columbia is one of the largest salmon producing rivers on the coast and according to Todd McIntyre those fish should be passing  Langara & Haida Gwai in April, May & June. Let’s hope they’re right!

Outpost team updates continue. I’m looking forward to JP Biron’s humor, antics, great photos and million dollar smile as he’s back guiding for his second season at the Outpost this summer.

JP has been in school most of the year in Vancouver finishing up his marine mechanics course. He saved a few of our engines last summer and I’m comforted to know he’ll be there to “look under the hood” should anything go wrong. Welcome back JP!

I’m happy to announce that Norm Hann will be back part time for his third year at the Outpost.

Norm is annually involved in a variety of outdoor activities and adventures on the BC coast. This year beginning on May 3rd, 2010 and corresponding with the annual Pacific Salmon migration, Norm will be paddling the proposed oil tanker route through the Great Bear Rainforest and the traditional harvesting lands of the coastal First Nation’s on his Surftech standup paddleboard. The paddle and support team will begin in Kitimat, B.C and will travel south to Bella Bella, over 300kms, paddling and documenting the people and places that are at risk.

The goal of this expedition is to bring awareness to the proposed Enbridge oil pipeline tanker traffic and it’s potentially devastating effects to the traditional food harvesting areas of First Nation’s and wildlife of the Great Bear Rainforest.  

You can read more about Norm’s quest on his website:

Best of luck Norm, we offer our support and look forward to having you back at the OP after you’re done.

I’ll end this week with some items that you’ll see in the stores (OP, NIL & CH) this summer. Arcteyrx is a local Vancouver company and makes very “sexy” hi tech clothing. Jen Mclean from the office has chosen these items to name a few:

Beta Jackets:

Covert Fleece

Delta Zips
