This week Hippa has given us some of the most beautiful days of the year so far! Calm seas and light northwest winds have prevailed over the last few days. We are looking at a rising northwest system coming soon but blue skies and warm sunshine are still in the forecast.
It’s been another incredibly productive week out here on the west side of Haida Gwaii. The weather has continued to cooperate with us allowing anglers to hit the fishing grounds hard, day in and day out. We have noticed very large amounts of bait hanging out on the Denham Shoals that is attracting great numbers of salmon as well as all kinds of other wildlife. I had the chance to get out one morning last week and saw the largest group of humpback whales I have ever seen out there, I lost count after 15!
The last few trips at Hippa Island lodge have proven to be varied in weather and activity. We did encounter our 2 largest fish of the season both weighing in at 47 lbs. Great to see and hopefully a sign of things to come!
We have officially reached the halfway point of the season out here in Englefield Bay. It has been one for the books thus far and we can only expect that the second half will stay consistent and if even possible, get better.

Salmon Fishing Action Remains Fast & Furious
The fishing at the lodges this year has been nothing short of epic, and there’s no sign that things are slowing down as we approach “Hogust”. And if you’ve had enough chinook action, we are now moving into prime coho fishing season!If the 19lb coho caught at Englefield last week is any indication, our anglers will have a lot to look forward to in the coming months!
