CH Report: Highly Successful June, Looking Good For July! - July 8, 2023

July 10, 2023

Hello again from the Clubhouse here on Langara Island. We are in a high pressure situation with some strong northwesterlies, otherwise dry and sunny.Fishing has slowed slightly on the chinook front, due to weather and the fact heaps of coho have poured into the area. Oodles of hungry coho 6 to 8 lbs with the larger coho at 10lbs. The east side of Langara is busy.June came and went and proved to be highly successful on the chinook fishing front. Probably the best in a half dozen years. We found fish up to 50 lbs, several mid 40s, and l almost every trip had three to six 30 lbers. We found them out west, at Lacy, we angled them in Bruin, and all along our spots at the top of Graham Island.Last week of JUNE was very good, with a fair number of tyees in the mid thirties being released. Below is a pic of a nice 36 lber we caught and released out in the pleasure dome, always a good bet this time of year.

Several good fish were taken out there, but things dried up here on day two of the trip.We looked around down at Boulder and caught a late morning bite as some nice tyees rolled into the bay. Paul was first up grabbing a 37 lber near the head of the bay. After watching him release the fish and yahoo, pumping his fist, it was our time to redeem ourselves. The sounder showed a bunch of fish tight to the kelp and shortly after, we had a nice tyee on the line. Carefully played and successfully landed by Bret, a fish measuring out at 34 lbs, pictured below.

Look at these conditions!

Lucy carefully coaching Bret, we wanted this one bad!Halibut fishing is good when you can get out west, weather the issue presently. That said, drop you rigger down to the bottom, often you can grab a nice halibut just off the bottom.

Gary grabbed this nice hali dragging off Mac, that the beauty of having downriggers on your boat! So nice to have the opportunity to fish shallow and deep, we fish where the fish are! No weight on the line, you and the fish. A great way to enjoy the experience.Meanwhile, Paul, who's missing his many cats at home, decided to spend an evening pampering Lucy on the clubhouse deck, always a great place to socialize and enjoy the evenings.

Find the bait and the fish will be there. Look at this sounder shot up the east side of Langara!

Below is what is found in the bait, many chinook feeding, 18 to 21lbs. Good one Gary and Kristen.

Whales, bait, eagles, fish, all happening now here at Langara. All the guides are in mid-season form producing fish and making your trip the best it can be.Looking forward to seeing all of you. Looking ahead, July looks like a fantastic month to fish here on the north coast at Langara! There is no better place to eat, sleep, and fish in British Columbia.For now, goodnight from the CLUBHOUSE!Mike TonnesenHead Guide
