Fishing Report: August 5, 2016

Posted on: Aug 5th, 2016
Bill Gibson, Langara Fishing Lodge Manager

The salmon at Langara this week? Large and lots of them.

The Chinook are a real solid 20-pound average right now, and numerous Tyees have been added to the board or been released by both guests and staff. A 49-pound Chinook is the largest of this trip so far, the best of several in the 40s.

We’ve also seeing some large to brute-size Coho hitting the docks this trip, led by a pair of 17-pounders.

The Graham Island shoreline has been excellent on the morning ebb tides from Boulder Point to Chanal Reef. Some serious numbers of springs are being found creeping down the shoreline, right where they are supposed to be and at the normal depths, too.

Gunia Point, Friendly Cove and Bruin Bay have been outstanding this last week around first light, and keep producing throughout the ebb and the beginning of the flood tide.

Up around Langara, Egeria Bay and Cohoe Point, near-shore and offshore, have been good; Andrews Point has been producing for the few anglers fishing there; and McPherson Point has been a good bet on the first push of the flood tide for the last few days.

Most of the Chinook and Coho here are being found at normal depths of 10-30 pulls — a change from the past couple of weeks when they were all down around 40-80 pulls. The fish can still be caught deep if you like but most guests prefer the shallow fishing.

The west side has been open for only a half-day this trip due to the prevailing NW winds of late, so bottom fishing has been a bit limited. But these winds have given us some breezy, sunny and fishy days to bask in this week.

The whole Island seems to be surrounded by Humpback whales. Guests are seeing them everywhere, including right in front of the lodge — several whales have been spotted from the docks this week, passing by Henslung Cove, and a couple curious ones even ventured in close to our docks to check things out. It’s been this way for much of the season, but we never get tired seeing them.
