We have had some real highlights over the past week here at The Lodge at Hippa Island! Most notably, we smashed our season’s top coho [silver] salmon weigh-in thanks to an enormous 23lber landed by Scott Elo. This surpassed the previous top weight by a whopping 4lbs… great fish Scott!
Chinook salmon fishing has picked up at Next Rock again! Several tyee have come in over the last two trips from the Next Rock area, and Lighthouse has been fishing very well for spring salmon in the low to mid twenties.
I just heard the tyee gong ring for the first time for today, but it’s probably not going to be the last! Fishing for chinook has required a bit of extra time out on the water, but it has been resulting in larger sized fish compared to what we have been seeing over the past few weeks.
