Fraser River Chinook are here

Painter's Lodge and April Point Resort & Spa - June 16, 2007

Yesterday we saw some more great catches out there. Traditionally there is an early run of large Fraser River Chinook in June and we're starting to see them now.

Lots of excitment on the flood tide at both Chatham Point and Green Sea Bay. 20 to 30 pounders have been have been a real treat for our guests.

Anchovies have been hitting fish of all sizes. Congrats to Tom Donaldson who landed both 23½ and 10 pounders and Tom Ambrose with a couple of Spings in the teens.

Tight lines.
