Dock Talk

First Salmon of the Year!

Painter's Lodge and April Point Resort & Spa - April 14, 2006

After a blustery night the winds calmed down and the sun peaked out for our first fishing trips of the season this morning. Our expert guides could barely wait to get out on the water and start the 2006 fishing season.

Cape Mudge produced 2 Chinook salmon, weighing in at 9 and 12 lbs! Congratulations are in order to Jim Anderson and Jaime Stasiuk from Calgary for catching the first salmon of the season. Well done guys!

Off the lighthouse an 11 lb Chinook was brought in, and 2 more were lost! An excellent first day on the water.

This morning’s wildlife zodiac tour was a little late getting back to the dock as porpoises were spotted near the end and guests were busy taking photos. We’re off to a great start up here, we hope to see you soon!
