Our anglers have tenaciously hitting the inside waters and have been finding a ton of bait stacked up inside resulting in great success on the salmon front.
Tyee salmon have been rolling into the dock all week and Calm Rock has been the place to be! Most anglers are finding chinook salmon in the low to mid-twenties to the north at Calm Rock on the flood.
Despite some nasty North West winds as of late, our anglers continue to persevere and hit the fishing grounds hard. A typical day with the weather we have been dealt starts out on the Denham Shoals hunting for Halibut, Ling Cod and of course some big Chinook that are usually found hanging out off the west side of both the south and west pinnacles. It’s usually around 11:00 when the wind really starts to pick up and creates uncomfortable fishing conditions at the Shoals, at which point most anglers start to retreat to our inside waters like Denham Bay, and the “green mile” stretch from No Name to Herbert Head.
Calm Rock has been a steady producer of larger fish over the last few days. A pair of Tyees came in last night along with a 28lb and several in the mid-twenties.
This past week in Englefield Bay has been one for the books. Although the weather has been up and down, we still managed to have a banner week. August, or up here more commonly known as “Hogust”, is here and is the most sought after time to be in the bay for one reason, BIG fish.
