This past week at Hippa the weather has given us almost every condition it can muster up. Winds have varied from difficult south west to almost perfect summer conditions with light north west winds calming the seas.
With the Salmon masters Tournament complete we are well into the 2017 season here at Hippa.
This years tournament was a complete sucess and what a great competition it was! Englefield took the grand prize this year, but look out we are set to take it back in 2018!
An amazing show of nature was seen by most of our Hippa Island guests on the last trip. A large pod of orca was hanging around Calm Rock. They were following our boats and keying in on the salmon being played. So not only was there great fishing on the Inside, but our guests had the opportunity for some incredible whale watching!
Our first trip at Hippa this season was a complete success, the water was flat and fish were biting! Having flat water most of the boats ventured outside. Freeman Rock was the place of choice for most guests.
Our dynamic Hippa Island crew has been on site for almost a week preparing for the 2017 season! The lodge is very close to being ready for the arrival of this year’s guests. We are very proud of the effort put forth by all our staff. The fishing for the most part is yet to be discovered but we have been able to test a few spots and the results have been impressive.
