“Happy 1st Week of Summer 2019”


Yes, small amount of rain have kept our local forrest moist and temperatures reasonable 

Yes, the Salmon have arrived in a serious way. Both Chinook/Kings/Springs & Coho/Silvers

Yes, the bait balls of herring & candle fish are huge and that is what is drawing the fish inshore

Yes, to add to ALL that GOOD stuff, the significant spawn of squid is occurring from Beano Creek in Nootka all the way up to Grassy Is. In upper Esperanza.
