Get Hooked on May & June FishingOctober 12, 2017 | 2162 Views
Year in and year out, May and June have proved to be one of the best times of the season to fish for salmon in the waters surrounding Langara Island and Port Louis. In fact, chinook salmon are abundant in these waters long before the first guests of the season arrive.
Early-season fishing gives anglers an opportunity to get in on some of the biggest runs of salmon that we see on the northern coast all season long and great numbers of tyees. For over a decade, catch data compiled as far back as 1997, has proven that salmon have been returning much earlier than they did a generation ago and in vast numbers during these early season runs.
May and June gives you an opportunity to experience the perfect fishing trip. Lots of volume in the 16 to 25 lb range, a very good chance at that trophy tyee we all dream of and of course exceptional bottom fishing. Many people also argue that the salmon fight harder and way out of their weight class at this time of year as they as they ferociously feed on their way home to their natal rivers.
This time of the season also features the longest days of the year, and there is no place better to experience the summer solstice than this northern archipelago. If that wasn’t enough, it tends to be a much easier time to coordinate everyone’s schedules before the July and August rush, which can be very busy times for everyone during the peak summer months.
