Guide’s Report – July 5th

July 6, 2015 by Duane Foerter2

As the days pass and the fishing stories are starting to grow, the talk around the guide’s dinner table is getting pretty interesting! The fishing has continued to be steady, and all of the guides are working hard running their baits and gear searching for some big Chinook salmon.  Our Tyee count is a little low for this stage of the season.  But we sure are catching a lot of nice fish!

The thing I love most about heading out in the morning is the unknown, for you simply don’t know what the day will hold. Whether it will be a huge Chinook biting your line at any second, a sudden whale show, or even the pesky sea lion stealing your fish. Speaking of sea lions, Blondie showed up 3 days ago and has paid a few of our boats a visit, giving some guests an opportunity to witness their fish being ripped apart by the 1200 lb. sea lion. The tide swings have been massive lately, and the slack tides have been producing good action. The Northwest winds have also started to increase, and will continue to blow baitfish and salmon towards shore.

I am looking forward to starting the new day of fishing tomorrow and the mysteries that it will hold.  Since we are almost limited out, we’ll be “hog hunting” for the day!  I look forward to seeing everyone up here for another fishing adventure.
