Trip Dates: June 16th – June 19th, 2016
Opening week at Peregrine Lodge was one filled with diversity, excitement, experiences, and of course, fish! Right from the get go we had two people join the Tyee club on day one of the 2016 season with their matching 31lb Chinooks. Not to be outdone, Don managed to wrestle in a 48lb halibut, the heaviest fish of the group, although there were multiple others weighing in over 40lbs.
During day two guests enjoyed their fantastic salmon fishing experience with the company of an enormous pod of Orcas. The group of Killer Whales was estimated to be well over 30, and put on a fantastic show as they made their way through our fishing grounds. In the end the day was dubbed ‘national geographic day’, with eagles, sea lions, black bears, humpback whales, and orcas being spotted on the mystical fishing grounds of Northern Haida Gwaii. It was a humbling experience for all guests, guides, and myself included! This once in a lifetime sight-seeing experience was a nice addition to the heaps of fish that were brought back to the dock for weigh-ins.
Halibut fishing was very active throughout the trip, especially on day three! One of our newly acquired guides Max can attest to that, who hooked up two on one line, and was able to bring both into the boat. This occurrence happened at Hali-Hill, but the flounder fish was seen all across our fishing grounds. “Fish’n’chips for all!” exclaimed our assistant manager Jon.
The first trip of the 2016 season finished strong, especially at local hot spots Klash and Green Point, which provided the majority of larger fish on day 4. Expert guiding, top of the line equipment, and of course prime fishing grounds, provided to make a memorable and exciting first week at Peregrine Lodge.
