Kingfisher Report | July 7, 2024

July 7, 2024 by Tayler Fuerst0

A Northwest wind, over several days, always inspires excitement amongst the guide team as it usually indicates good things to come. Although fishing has, at times, been challenging this year, there is always something to look forward to when fishing in Area One. Wildlife spectacles have been fantastic – With numerous humpback and orca whale sightings occurring daily.

On the fishing side, Chinook feeding off shore has been relatively abundant and Coho have shown up in healthy numbers, ranging in size from 3 to 6lbs on average. Most Chinook retained by guests last week were 10-16lbs but there have definitely been some larger fish around – Especially for those willing to spend the time and patience in shore at one of our many legendary points. Encounters with large fish have been reported more frequently within recent days. Bird Rock 2 and the top side have been most notable, producing a few quality fish. When you’re trolling close to the rocks along the shoreline of Graham Island you never know what could happen. You’re one bite away from being famous amongst salmon anglers!

We look forward to seeing you soon, tightlines and let the Tyees go!

QCL Guide, Tristan O’Brian
