Kingfisher Report for June 14th

June 14, 2019 by Duane Foerter2

An escape to this remote corner of the world is on the wish list for a lot of people, and for good reason!  It’s definitely an angler’s paradise; those gorgeous chrome-bright salmon sure make an impression on you!  The wilderness seascapes of the fishing grounds are literally overflowing with an abundance of life –both above and below the surface.  Sharing a breath of salt sea air with a feeding humpback whale just a rod’s length off your boat is a sure testament to that – especially while you’re reeling in a nice lingcod off the other side!

Guests staying with us this week got to experience all that and more. Among our guests we were thrilled to host Kevin Costner and his family who were able to enjoy the QCL Experience with us.  We’re so pleased that we were able to show them some beautiful BC wilderness along with some warm QCL hospitality. While they’re returning home with a nice box of fish we hope that their whole family takes along many fond memories of their visit here.

June fishing continues to be very productive with good numbers of Chinook salmon in all weight classes.  Sixteen lucky anglers got to ring the Tyee bell over the past 4 days, celebrating what most would consider the fish of a lifetime. But like we always say, there so much more to it than just fishing!

    Dear QCL:

    I am regretfully not with you this weekend – the first time in a dozen years, but am with you in spirit. I hear the fish are biting, with Louis, Mathieu, Lili, Alex and Eli landing some big ones. Good luck to all the OSK team and friends, I have a feeling that one of them has the derby prize fish this year. I’m waiting to bring a prize of my own in for a landing any day now, will let you know when we have him on board. Tight lines.

      Thanks for the note John! It was a sad surprise to discover you couldn’t join your crew this weekend! They’re doing well and I’m sure they’ve got what it takes to bring home the goods for you this year! Best fishes from all your QCL friends and we’ll keep you posted!
