I am one of the luckiest people in the world. In the past week my job has taken me to Langara Island where I had the great privilege of fishing Cohoe Point during an intense first-light Chinook bite, then I was off to Kano Inlet and the Salmon Seeker where I landed a beautiful 32 pound “chicken” halibut and now this week I’m back home to Campbell River and Painter’s Lodge where the Chinook fishing has been nothing short of spectacular.
This morning’s highlight was Ryan Wilson’s 29.5 pound Chinook (oh so close to the fabled “Tyee” size of 30 pounds) but nearly every boat returning from the AM tide had caught its limit. Neither guides nor guests could wipe the childlike grins off their faces.
It has been a truly great start to the year, so no matter which Oak Bay Marine Group resort is your destination, you are sure to be in store for some wonderful fishing excitement.
