It’s been a busy week here at the lodge. We finished up our Spring Fling Derby on Saturday. A big congratulations goes out to Yvette Scott who caught a beautiful 29lb Chinook to win the derby this year! The main fishing hotspots are the lighthouse, the hump, the red and green can at the moment. Last night, the Drews’ family came in with 3 nice Chinooks in one four hour trip! The average size for these guys has been about 15-20lbs which is great for this time in the season - and it will only get better from here on out!
We look forward to this time next week when our ladies arrive for the 20th annual Women’s Derby, which I’m sure we will see guests catch their limits and big Chinook. As for our wildlife tours, the Transient Orca have been spotted on numerous occasions as well as bears, porpoises and large pods of Pacific Whitesided dolphins. Plus, the sun decided to come out again today which has made for another beautiful day here at Painter’s Lodge!
