HIPPA ISLAND | WEEKLY FISHING REPORT

Aug
25
2017

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.

Several chinook in the low to mid thirties have come in. Rob Ward landed a 35lb followed by Allan Bowman’s impressive 34lber to top the list for trip 25. Calm Rock is a great choice at any tide change and when weather allows Lighthouse has been the place to be.

Coho are more readily available now with some larger fish being found to the south of Hippa around Red Rock lately.
This morning some anglers ventured north again to Selvesen bay and first reports are good for numbers of both coho and chinook. This northern fishery can really turn on for large coho this time of year and with the arrival of some bigger schools we are expecting to see some great results in the next few days.

Bottom fish as usual come in as by-catch while fishing for salmon, some very nice halibut are being trolled up as well as ling and snapper.
When targeting bottom our anglers look for pinnacles or rock piles for rockfish and lingcod. Flat shale or sandy flats near the structure are where halibut seem to hold.
Multi targeting species makes for a great day of fun filled with variety and excitement!

Looking back on our season in 2017, I will never forget the memories forged throughout the year and fish stories that will be repeated for a lifetime.
Our crew here at the lodge are still looking forward to every minute here in Nesto inlet and are already asking about possibilities of joining the team again in 2018.

For all of you that came up to join us here over the season we would like to thank you for the great times and memories. We are looking forward to seeing you back on the water next season!

Our trips for 2018 are filling up as we speak, so please get in touch with us and book the times that suit you best before they are spoken for! Our last trip of the year is fast approaching and with that we strive to make it as new and fresh as the first.

Looking forward to welcoming our last group and sharing this pristine wilderness with a lucky l last few in 2017!

Until then,
Take care and Tight Lines,
Paul “Scale” Kendrick
