As predicted by the Biologists in the Kitimat region, large Chinooks are lurking in the local waters. Many fish in the mid to upper 40 pound range are being hooked some not as fortunate as the pics below. When this monster hit, it took all of the anglers in the boat and 1KM of river to bring this bad boy into the net. 47 inch length and 27 inch girth.
Not to mention a 49lber taken on an 8wt fly rod, this fish took the angler 3KM down river to finally bring the fish to shore.
With peak season a few weeks away the early run is starting to flood the river as well the saltwater fishing has picked up. Killer Whales are migrating in the Douglas Channel to feed on the schools of Salmon as they start their journey to the spawning grounds.
Guests arriving this week are from England, Calgary, Saskatoon and Italy, tight lines.
