Top Chinook 2021:

- 40 lbs – Gary S.
- 39 lbs – M. Z.

- And a handful of tyees in the 30-35lb range
Mark’s legendary catch this week reminds us that there are very few spots along the coast that provide the opportunity to catch a chinook of this impressive size. This, combined with the short five-minute run to the fishing grounds marks WCFC one of the most unique spots to fish for salmon and halibut in Canada.
