Chromers on the Home pool! These Pink Salmon have been late this season & are just now arriving in numbers. We hooked a number of fish in our back yard today, the bite was on & off but for the most part the fishing was great! Here is just a few of the great photos we took while having a nice BBQ & enjoying good company... many of the fish had fresh sea-lice on them so we know where they just came from! A floating line, 7wt rod & some small weighted flies is all one needs to have some great success. these little fish battle excellent fresh from the ocean:)
The Island has some incredible scenery & places that most people never get to see! This particular river is a high gradient one mostly set in canyon walls inaccessible to the everyday angler.. The ones who venture into it's tough access pools can have some incredible experiences. We fished this pool a good part of the day due to the number of large Dolly Varden schooled up in the tail out of the pool. While fishing these selective fish, we had other fish move into the pool on occasion to add to the challenge. Some wild Summer Coho came through & at one point we had a pair of Summer Steelhead move into the tail out in perfect position to swing a fly to! A couple of times we had these fish take the fly & spit it out before we could hook up! This was also a great situation to experiment with different flies & angles of approach while observing the fish. Frusterating at times like most fishing can be but a learning curve and the odd reward to top off being in an incredible peace of gods country:)
