coming down over Pratt's on high water, June 11th, 2015 (larger version)
We came to the lodge on June 10th this year to a very flooded river. Ice had left Sandwich Bay only about 10 days before that. The river was a raging 5 meters high and discharging an incredible 1400 cubic meters per second of water when we crested The Gorge for the first time in 2015. We had a busy two weeks of more remodeling and maintenance at the lodge as we watched the river level drop. It has dropped 2 meters, and flow reduced to around 400 cubic meters/second. Still plenty of water, but some of the good high water fishing pools are forming up nicely.

We welcome our first guests today, and what a great bunch. They are happy to be here, and we are happy to have them. Fishing this afternoon was unsuccessful. 5 salmon were spotted, but no rises. It is a late year. A couple of our guides did some evening fishing the last few days leading up to now, resulting in one risen fish on the 23rd. We are hoping that with the tides now 'building', and the river dropping, the action will pick up for our guests with some reel smoking large salmon over the coming days. Many of the anglers in this group are repeat guests to the Eagle, so they know what could be in store. So we continue to test the waters, enjoy great food, drink, and company. Stay tuned, there is sure to be some great action stories coming soon.
