August 23, 2019 | 1501 Views
Three words to describe this week’s report: keep them coming! With another hot weekend followed by some tough weather conditions we have lots of big fish to report from this week. Boulder Bay, Gunia Point, and Bruin Bay were the big producers this week before the wind took over and the fleet was strapped to just a few fishing spots to end the week.
Guest, Hayden Brodigan stole the weekend show with not just one – but two tyee released in a three day trip! The first, 33lbs, and the second taped out to 30lbs. While Hayden had the most, Jim Gallagher had the heaviest with his tyee weighing in at 34lbs on the scale. Following those two we had Brian Williams with a 33lb release, Finn Jensen with a 32lb retained, and Michael Sanfilippo with a 31lb retained. We also must tip our hats to Kevin Cmolik who angled two 29lb chinook’s in one day, and Bob Farmer who retained a 27lber.
The fishing took a turn as the weather showed up. Given the factors there were still some impressive fish caught the second trip of the week. Coming up big the first day Samantha Rogowski caught a 25lb chinook. Johnny Ciampi, Neil Golden, and Andrew Whitaker all tied the second biggest fish of the trip with each of their 23lb chinooks. Each day had a hot spot: first Boulder Bay, second the Fish Bowl, and third Coho Point.
The season is coming to a close but i’ll be back next week with the final report of the 2019 season! Tight Lines.
