Dog On The Blog

We've been fishing a lot this past week and have experienced some interesting fishing along the way searching out fish on the North Island. We've been to 6 different rivers targeting 5 different species of fish. The Chum (Dog Salmon) are arriving in the rivers now & by the sounds of the numbers of Chum in the ocean, we're to expect many more in the rivers soon... This year it's safe to say that all our Salmon have returned in great numbers on the Island. Out of all these species of fish there are no fish that seem to pull more relentlessly than these big Chum! Our water levels are now flowing more consistently & with this we can fish larger flies swinging them with 2 handed rods... Even with the 15ft 11wt rod we used to land this fish in heavy water in the upper Campbell, there was no shortage of fight from this Jurasic looking Beast! We lost 2 others and hooked some Coho too in the upper islands. Soon it will be Winter Steelhead time & for myself there's no better fishing time of year:)
