August 2015 Fishing Report
Fishing Report- over the top GOOD in BOTH Esperanza & Nootka. Fish have moved well into the inlets. Good numbers of Chinook are in as far Saltery Bay in Esperanza & well past Hisnit in Nootka. There are so many fish that nearly every bait is working BUT anchovies are still winning the day. A lot of fish in the 20-25lb few Tyees. Catching is best if lines are fished deeper on these many sunny days.
Why are there so many Chinook? One thought is because the Northern Troll fleet did not see the high number of WCVI Springs which they usually catch - "that the WCVI Chinook were hugging the coast in the colder waters not further out where the Troll Fleet normally intercepts them."
This may be the season when everybody limits out.
Tahsis Road Report- Had a Commercial Boat Mover bring in a 24ft. boat to the Marina. He commented on how GOOD the road is. Recently graded, Sprayed for dust, 45% paved/seal coated. There have been similar comments by several guests who also brought their boats in.
