Another week, I mean two, goes by and Coho and Steelhead runs are good, waves of fish in smaller groups are entering the Skeena and Douglas Channel areas. I have posted only a few great shots of the many clients from all corners of the planet, and all walks of life.
Not to mention a class act film crew from Toronto and Vancouver, shooting video in paradise, visiting small remote inlets along the Douglas as well the Hartley Bay Village. That starts pic 1 in this report. As you can see a majestic place to shoot. As well Horse flies the size of ping pong balls!
Pic2 is a sweet Steelhead of Katia from Duseldorf Germany, fishing the epicenter of Steelhead on the Skeena River.
Pic 3 is another fresh Steelhead landed by Mr. Yamada on the Skeena.
Pic 4 is the lodge record Halibut of the year pushing the 80lb mark caught by Ken with help from his wife Vivian visiting from Barhead Alberta. Ken fought this beast to the surface as well two other tangled lines before being netted along side the boat. We landed 3 for 4 halibut that day. Halibut will close September 9th at midnight.
Pic 5 is a group of adventurers that hired us to take them 1 hour down the channel where they will begin a 10 day sea Kayak tour of the Gardner Canal which includes hot springs and many sights the ocean has to offer.
With summer steelhead runs very good and northern Coho arriving in the rivers the next few weeks should prove to be a sweet one.
I would also like to thank the large group of Bass Pro Shop team members as well owner Johnny Mo for coordinating 24 anglers with us and he could not say more about our team of pro guides!
Arriving groups from Switzerland, Poland, Vancouver and Germany.
