The Clubhouse Fishing Reports

CH Report – More Fish Yet to Arrive! – September 5, 2021

September 7, 2021 | 213 Views

A wild windy day here at Langara, a decent south east blast is ripping on the East Side of Langara, along with some thundershowers! I am hiding in the lodge here knocking out a fishing report and forwarding a few pictures of some recent activity here at The Clubhouse.

Fishing slowed in here this trip, although a couple tyee have been caught. We are now moving predominantly up the EAST SIDE, fishing Coho Point as well as making the trek up to the Shawn Crawford memorial highway. Out at Coho point the guides are picking off a few high teen, low twenties chinook, some mid water ling, and the odd or I should say very odd coho. Overall conditions have been fine water wise, and some guides are fishing up on said Highway, dropping canon balls down into 125 to 160 feet of water, and coming back to the dock with some chinook, 15 to 22 lbs. Surprisingly very few coho in the mix.

Weather permitting the Halibut on the West side, has been consistent. Guides are hitting the Peanut and Thrumb and all coming back with BUTTS. Remember, one over 90 cm, or two under is the limit.

I scouted out the area along with Brent deep trolling with gear but we had no results on the salmon. Mid water ling no issue lol. A dozen trollers are working the area, and having some success. Remember on that front commercial fishing boats have the right away while fishing, so best to give them lots of room on the tack.

Last week we had some steadier fishing in here out on the West Side, finding chinook in the 21 to 30 lb range somewhat abundant. I fished a large superior spoon with great success with guest Nic Siegner and his dad Paul, landing some very nice chinook to 29 lbs. Below are a few pics of Nic and his first few chinook he has caught early on in his salmon fishing career. Hopefully he’s hooked and back again.

Nic with his first-ever chinook salmon. Congratulations Nic!

Nic awarded seasoned angler status after landing this nice chinook.

Jackson, was guiding veterans Rebecca and Roland Theil, they had some nice fish into the mid twenties, below is a nice pic of the group out in the Bowel.

Greg Garske and Steve Michels were at the top end catching a few chinook, below is a picture of the boys doing what they love to do.

Long-time guests, Greg Garske and Steve Michels doing what they love to do!

Below is guide. Paul with Lucy, posing with a nice fish brought back to the dock!

Here is Nic again with his first ever halibut , coming in at 31 lbs.

Nic, his first halibut and cheerleader, Lucy!

We still do see some sun up here in the fall, last week we had a good day out in the fish bowel, with a few chinook biting and a scorching hot day, reaching 16 degrees C lol. Below is a photo of the Chalk group on a fish.

The Chalk group on ’em!

Two days back the halibut grounds were flat calm and we had the weather to tackle plenty halibut, below is the photo taken 5 miles off Thrumb!

There were some beautiful flat, calm days on the halibut grounds.

Finally here is Shaun and Darren yesterday out in the rain catching a high teener and enjoying life out at  Coho Point. Shaun is from Stewart BC., no issue with this shower, hard core salt water angler right here.

Guests, Shaun & Darren enjoying every moment on the water!

So there you have it, we are into September now.  I am fully expecting more fish to arrive over the next couple weeks, as well as some storm watching lol. This is an amazing place to visit, lots to see, plenty whales around to entertain you while you search for the chinook and coho up here at Langara Island.

Shawn Crawford  just poked his head in the door, arriving from The Outpost today. I better go show him the galley and get some grub in him, catch you soon, and standby for another full report from Langara Island.
