Plenty of fish and wildlife in the Discovery Passa

Painter's Lodge and April Point Resort & Spa - August 19, 2002

April Point Resort and Painter's Lodge had a great weekend with beautiful weather and even better action on the water. Chinook are averaging 15-20 lbs. with Pinks and hatchery Coho also available. Some guests have even limited out and returned early from their trips. Hot spots include Brown's Bay and Deepwater anywhere from 40-275 feet, depending on the species targeted.

The Wildlife Adventure Tours are also witnessing the results of plenty of salmon in the water. A trip on Friday saw a pod of up to 20 Killer Whales in the narrows between two high cliffs. The pod was putting on quite a show beaching, playing around the boat and using the natural acoustics of the cliffs to practice their echoing techniques. It was a spectacular show
