A Wave of Fish!
Its incredible how in a couple of days everything changes on our waters! For three weeks I have been anticipating the return of Pink Salmon to the Campbell River. With a few fish trickling in over the last three weeks trying to put clients on fish has been a challenge and then in one night, everything changes! It's very typical for these fish to return between the first & second week of July and of course until they truly arrive the word on the river is mixed with ideas, concerns and rumors... One angler has one theory, the other is skeptical and others have in their minds a more scientific idea as to why the fish aren't coming. Some anglers figure their not going to return at all, and then up to the day before the big arrival when you hear of the monster floods two year ago which the hatchery feels has blown out all the eggs and everything's a disaster for this return of fish, the chrome bright Salmon start to flood our waters! We may not get a million fish back to this 3km stretch of river but certainly plenty enough to please beyond expectations most anglers fishing dreams... This video was taken randomly last night after hooking approximately 10 fresh sea bright salmon while enjoying dinner, beverages on the home pool; don't try this at home:)
