Guiding Update Aug 25 / 09
Well we've had some incredible fishing for Pink Salmon on our home waters in the last few weeks. These little fish averaging 3 - 5 lbs 1km from tidal water are allot to handle at times with the average single handed rod. We've had 30 fish days in the home pool alone & some of our guests feel it's some of the best fishing they've ever had. Even after fishing Steelhead on some of the worlds renown rivers there's something to be said when hitting the pink fishery just right! They're much like fishing small Atlantic Salmon Grilse one guest mentioned but having them by the thousands. I understand that we've had close to half a million in the Campbell river alone this season so rumor has it! It wouldn't surprise me with what I've witnessed first hand many days this month:) This is a Great fishery that has made many an angler very happy after a day's fishing here. I just finished guiding to anglers from England who never fly fished in their lives. They landed 10 fish between the two of them for a half days fishing, not bad for being brand new at the sport. they say there's many more fish heading down the straight here and if they're heading our way it will easily surpass and pink salmon return on record to date! There's something to be said for bright waters, bright fish!
