The Clubhouse Fishing Reports

CH Report: The Fish Have Arrived On Schedule – June 15, 2021

June 15, 2021 | 1577 Views

We are all excited with the coming season opening date, July 1. Preparations continue up at Langara and the staff are busy with the usual preseason set up duties. Boats are arriving to the dock daily under Paul and Tucker’s guidance and things are very much looking like a lodge again. Although May was a bit of a damp one up on the island June is proving to be very nice so far, light winds and calm seas, just about perfect.

June has been a fantastic month so far. We can’t wait to begin welcoming guests.

Guides are arriving weekly and these guides are out daily now testing the waters, so through them I scratched a quick report here on the chinook fishery, and I have a couple pictures forwarded today from Tucker and Paul who have reported to me fishing appears very good.

Guide Paul enjoying the great fishery June has provided.

First up is guide Paul, who spent a short evening fish out at Coho Point with Kim, who works in The Clubhouse. Kim angled the fish which appeared to be in the mid twenties, caught on the usual cut plug herring. This was the last week of May and the early gang in camp were excited with the first chinook of the season. Paul and Kim reported  a decent evening chinook bite and that proved to be motivation for others to get out.

Clubhouse team members, Kim and Paul had a great evening on the water, landing a chinook in the mid-twenties. 

Tucker Marshall was out next and grabbed the first tyee of the season he released at the boat side, a 31 lber. This fish was taken right off the pin at Coho Point. Tucker was out solo, rainy evening, could not pull anyone off the couch. Of course he had no camera on him, so we take his word on it lol. Nothing more fun than a solo tyee!

So the gang checked out the area and had great results, mostly up the east side of Langara. Lots of smaller low teens Tucker reports, busy rods.

DJ arrived last Monday, June 7, and of course the first thing he did was rig a boat and head out with Paul. Beautiful weather, flat calm, and in short order DJ cranked in a high twenties chinook out off Coho point, again on the cut plug herring. Nice start to the year for DJ, and Paul seems to be putting the set up crew some quality fishing.

Guide D.J. and Paul doing what they love most!

Guide D.J. and Paul getting warmed up for our guests.

The guides are reporting to me daily on what is happening, and things sound exciting up there. Jordan and the crew now have the docks in order, the boats in place, and The Clubhouse just about ready for 2021.

The only thing we are now awaiting is guests, and obviously that will be exciting for guests and staff alike. The fish have arrived on Schedule, all things point towards an exciting July 1 opening.

On behalf of the guides and all the hard working set up crew, we look so forward to opening day.

    Looks good, excited about arriving July 25th. Do you folks mainly cut plug? I see a down rigger in one of the photos, do you do much down rigging?

      Hi Mike,

      We are looking forward to welcoming you soon! All of our boats are equipped with dual electric downriggers, which gives all boats the flexibility to use the riggers and mooch. Most of our guests will run two rods on the down riggers and a mooching rod or two off the back. Cut plugging is certainly the most popular amongst our guide crew, but some also run gear.

      If you have any other questions, please feel free to give us a call at 1-888-432-6666.

      Tight Lines!

    Thanks Screamer! Beautiful pictures. Can’t believe the water is so flat at times. Please test the waters for halibut and provide an update in the next report! Maybe I’ll help you with the picture on July 1-4.
