Fall Fishing

Painter's Lodge and April Point Resort & Spa - September 29, 2006

October is nearly here and the famous fall Chum run is in full swing. The weather has been nothing short of fantastic this month and it’s supposed to continue well into next week. Chum salmon are notorious for putting up great battles on the water and many of our guests could attest to that recently.

Plumper Bay and Green Sea Bay have been the hot spots lately, with our guides doing well using blue and green hoochies. The purple haze flashers continue to be a staple in most of our guides’ tackle boxes, too.

Our Wildlife Tours have been incredible lately, especially with the warm sunny weather. Black bears and even the odd Grizzly have been spotted roaming remote beaches, and Dahls porpoiseshave been around a lot in recent weeks.

It’s a great time to steal another vacation before the rain comes so come on up and get out on the water!
