OP Report: Let’s Talk Tyees (A 66lb One!)- July 28, 2022

July 28, 2022 | 2173 Views

In the last few weeks, we’ve seen some prolific action rolling through the waters here at the OP. Our guests and our guides are putting in the work, and it’s paying off.

Now what you all came for, let’s talk tyees. We’ve certainly seen some here in the last few trips at the OP, including a record setting catch – 66lbs!

Here’s a list of our most recent released tyees:

Erin S. – 36lbs
JP W. – 32lbs
Gary G. – 30, 35lbs
Linda G. – 30, 32, 39lbs
David E. – 41lbs
Eric J. – 46lbs
Scott J. – 32, 66llbs

Congratulations to all of our guests that have broken the elusive 30+ mark. We want to specially acknowledge Linda G. (Guide Butcher) who caught and released 3 tyees in her time with us, and of course, a HUGE congratulations to Scott J. (Guide Scott Beckett) for a great catch and release of a 66lb Chinook – a season record, and an Outpost lodge record I believe.
Not the best photo, but the crew was too excited to get this 66lb specimen back in the water where it belongs. Angler Scott J (guide Scott Beckett). Congrats to all involved for the catch and release of a lifetime!
Big Smiles for Linda G. (Guide Butcher) with one of her many released tyees. Another one for Linda G. (Guide Butcher).In the same boat, Linda’s fishing partner Gary G. (Guide Butcher) also put in the work, here is him with one of his two tyees. David E. (Guide Butcher) with a great 41lb catch and release tyee.

The last two weeks we have seen some more challenging conditions, your typical Haida Gwaii weather. But with that we have seen a run of some nice fish. Those guests that have braved the west side waters and put the time in are being rewarded with great fish, big smiles, and lasting memories.

Halibut fishing has stayed fairly steady when the guides can get out into open water. Keith Y. and his 75lb halibut is the largest to hit the dock to date and going to be tough to beat.

Although fishing has slowed up a little with the bigger fishes arrival, the Coho are starting to show themselves and rewarding those that put the time in on the water.

Anglers took full advantage of the good weather when available, and scored some nice fish along the way!TJ A.(Guide Karly) enjoying the weather and the fishing.
Sunny days like this one are always enjoyed here in Haida Gwaii
Rain or shine, fishing is a great way to pass the time – TJ. A and Kyle G. seem to agree, look at the happy faces.

Hats off to our guiding staff, who are hitting it big at the moment. Whether you’re a seasoned angler, or this is your first time hitting the water – they’ve got you covered from cast to catch. The fantastic Outpost guides and dock staff!

On another note, guests have been treated to numerous wildlife encounters – as someone lucky enough to call this place home for a few months of the year, I can honestly say it never gets old.

Across the board, a big congratulations to our lucky anglers, the sore arms are a sign of a job well done!

That’s all for now, check back soon.

    I certainly remember several trips to the Outpost and enjoying watching a fish in the swell above my head level, as the boat slipped into the trough.

    Best of the season to the team at WCFC Outpost.
