The Outpost Report: June 11, 2009

Words can’t describe the peacefulness and solitude you experience when in the Queen Charlottes. This is nature in all it’s glory. The "Outpost Lodge", with all of the comforts you would expect, is literally dwarfed by it’s magnificent surroundings. From the day you arrive to the day you just don’t want to leave, you will experience probably the best fishing in all of British Columbia.
This is my second season at the Outpost Lodge. It ceases to amaze me how lucky I am to be here. It is impossible to take anything for granted. You never get tired of the scenery, the ocean and all that it offers. Today on a morning "warm-up" trip our boat caught and released six salmon, saw numerous whales and sea lions. The other day before breakfast I took my boat out not five minutes from the lodge and successfully released a 40 lb. Tyee. It’s exciting to catch such a fish but more satisfying to release it. I’m not getting "soft" after 30 years of guiding, just more environmentally conscious.
I wish all of our guests a great and personally satisfying trip to the Outpost this summer. I hope that when you leave you will bring home with you great memories, stories and photos to share and a greater appreciation of how delicate yet unique our world is becoming.

Bob kept a smaller fish that wouldn’t have survived release, absolutely perfect meat.
