September 2011 Wrap Up!
Sept gave us everything we asked for and lots more! Early Sept brought the summer we thought was not coming. Temperatures rose to 25 – 28 degrees Celsius / 82 – 88 degrees farenheight and stayed hot and dusty for most of two weeks. The first of many over 40 pound Chinook came to the cleaning tables. It was a 42.5 pound Tyee caught by local fisherman George White. 20 – 24 pound Coho became a daily event and lots of them! The closing of Halibut on Sept 5 moved the focus to large Ling Cod which are very plentiful and there were lots in the 25 – 35 pound range. Halibut will reopen in the early spring 2012.
Suddenly mid month the skies opened up and in the course of a week it rained 30 inches non stop. Thank goodness for the new tented areas and patio heaters! The last rock the dock on Friday Sept 23 went great with the live entertainment and steak night. 52 participants enjoyed the night despite the weather. Rock the Dock Friday nights will start every Friday night starting the May long weekend Friday May 18, 2012
The parking lot is now full of nearly 70 boats, all winterized, shrink wrapped and ready for the short days ahead.
2011 brought the wettest and most diverse weather ever, but it was also one of the best producing fishing season ever! Limits of salmon, ling, halibut and bottom fish were the norm
See you in 2012. Make your reservations for moorage, accommodations, fishing charters, and eco tours NOW so that we can insure you get what you need.
THANKS FOR A GREAT SEASON!
