Fishing Report: August 8, 2016

The NW wind machine that had been running all week finally slowed down a bit this past trip.

It has allowed us to move away from our sheltered shores — east of Langara and along Graham Island east of Chanal Reef — to focus on some Coho, which have been mostly hanging offshore, and chicken-size Halibut.

One of Langara’s greatest attributes is the fact we can fish and fish effectively with strong NW winds, unlike most other locations in Haida Gwaii.

Reasons to get up at 5:30 here: sunrise and salmon. That's about all the motivation we need.

The Chinook have really stuck to the Graham Island shoreline from Seath Point to Chanal Reef this trip — waters that are very comfortable in these conditions. All has been normal here: normal depths in the normal spots near the shore.

The bite at first light has provided the most intense fishing. Focusing on Graham after the first two hours of the ebb, and then the Langara shore for the flood seems to be effective.

Average size for the Chinook continues to impress, with solid 20-pounders being the norm. Several Tyee-size springs are on the board again this trip, with the largest being a 41-pounder taken from Bruin Bay this morning.

We should see a lot more Coho hit the docks today, as anglers have been finding them more offshore and near Langara Rocks. The numbers of Pink salmon have really dropped this week and are being found mostly in the slower water near Cohoe Point and Andrews Point now.
