The 2017 season at Westcoast Resorts has come and gone. This marked the 5th year of operations under ownership by the Haida Enterprise Corporation (HaiCo). By many metrics, this was the most successful season under HaiCo’s ownership. With continued investments under HaiCo, the facilities underwent the usual repair and maintenance regime with the addition of some capital projects and renovations. The most notable project was the updating of the Englefield Bay Lodge dining room and lounge. Based on the feedback from our valued guests, these renovations were well received and enjoyed by all.
Looking back on the 2017 season, I can reflect on some of the reasons that bring me back to this amazing location year after year. I will never forget the memories made and the fish stories that will be repeated for a lifetime. From greeting every guest upon arrival to our very last guest departing, not a minute goes by without nature demonstrating its incredible force.
The tyee’s have continued to roll into the dock both morning and afternoon all week long. We have been experiencing consistent bites producing larger fish over the last 3 trips.
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.
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.
