Just get me to the scale on time…
Trip Date : August 9-12
The weather continues to be impressive this summer as we welcomed another very excited group of anglers to Peregrine Lodge. Day one did not disappoint Nikki as she hooked into a 40-pound King at Snake Bay with guide Cody. This gal had no problem battling with her catch and could hardly wait to get to the weigh-in celebrations.
The lodge was boisterous during the evenings as Alana H. celebrated her birthday with family and friends. Many of her guests were newcomers to the sport of fishing and our exceptional fishing grounds did not disappoint. This trip was postcard perfect for memories of a birthday vacation well spent. Many of our guests had never experienced the humpbacks breeching so close to their fishing rods or the thrill of a battling salmon.
On the second day of the trip, a hefty run of springs lit up the fishing grounds and one boat boasted by playing over twenty fish! The champion of the day was Colby who masterfully landed a whopping 47-pound King salmon.
The boats left early with their guests to enjoy the last few hours of fishing on the last day and the weather enabled the ultimate fishing conditions so many of the guests adventured to “Halibut Hill “to complete their wish list for their boxes to go home.
The nightly awards ceremonies was active with good cheer among this group of close knit friends. We congratulate those who are the newest members of our Tyee Club.
The northwest is expected to blow gently through our fishing grounds, and we are expecting the next trip to enjoy playing even more of these incredible sized salmon runs.
Until next time, Tight lines, bent rods and big smiles!
