Painter's Lodge - October 10, 2011

Another season comes to an end at Painter’s Lodge and a lot of fishing addicts are starting to go through withdrawal already…especially since this year’s Chum fishing is still going strong. Our season started off with a bang, there were plenty of Chinook waiting for us when we opened in April and continued with incredible Chinook fishing right until late September. There were many highlights but the most memorable fish has to be the 39.5 pound Tyee that Jan de Bruyn landed in the Tyee Pool, thereby enrolling him in one of the most exclusive fishing clubs in the world. This year also saw an incredible run of pink salmon with the months of August and September seeing day after day of anglers with their limits of fish. Add in the beautiful late season weather and we had a truly wonderful late summer and fall. But now all of the guides are breaking down their gear and packing it away for the winter…but I’ve already heard them whispering about the new tricks they want to try NEXT year, so until then, thanks from all of the crew at Painter’s Lodge and April Point Resort.

Cheers.

I had my 8th season at Painter’s Lodge and once again I had a great summer even though it rained through most of August it was a great year! Of course I’m going to share with you all my favorite pictures of the season...
