Season outlook

Painter's Lodge and April Point Resort & Spa - March 12, 2006

2006 is shaping up to be a stellar year, and we here Painter’s Lodge and April Point Resort & Spa can hardly wait to open our doors and drop our lines.

Last season we had some great salmon fishing in across many areas and Chinook salmon were plentiful throughout most of the year. A huge return of Pinks kept angler’s busy and excellent Chum and Coho fishing made for an exciting fall.

This year is looking to be an exciting fishing season as DFO is predicting strong returns of Chinook and Coho salmon. Our expert guides will share their valuable local knowledge and help make the upcoming 2006 season unforgettable for our guests.

Also this season we are looking to continue the popularity of fishing the Tyee Pool.  2005 saw 46 new members of the esteemed and elusive Tyee Club, landing Chinook over 30 lbs. using traditional fishing gear.

New this year we are excited to offer a Discovery Tour throughout perhaps the most beautiful and awe-inspiring chain of islands on the west coast. Available 4 days a week from April 12 to May 31, our 22-passenger Delta cruiser will showcase the region’s rich natural and cultural history.

If you haven’t yet booked your trip to Painter’s Lodge or April Point Resort and Spa, then it’s time to get on it. Call 1-800-663-7090 or book online and get ready to catch some fish and some fun at our oceanfront playground.
