Guide, Sonny released this grilse this morning (larger version)
After a 5 day break we welcomed back guests on July 26th. They started fishing on the 27th, limited to the morning environmental protocol from 1hr before sunrise to 10am. The morning fishing has been decent. 13 fish hooked this morning by our 10 guests. Temperatures are still too warm for great fishing with the water at 70 F this morning. It has been slowly and steadily cooling off though, and air temps are forecasted to be cool all weekend. Guides remarked that the fish were more lively this morning than they have been lately. With the current conditions and forecast we are expecting that DFO will be able to lift restrictions on Monday, which will be welcome news for the next group of guests.

It has been a tough time but things are looking up. The group in now are a fine bunch and we've done a couple of trips into the bay to fish for sea run brookies with them outside of salmon fishing time. The trout haven't been plentiful, but they did catch up a nice meal for here in camp. Janet whipped up a fantastic seafood platter yesterday featuring their catch. Weather was beautiful for it as well.

Not many salmon pictures to post here and on our social media these days. Simply because the focus is more on a successful live release than a photo op. We take plenty of photo ops when the water is cold and there's no risk to the fish. Now, the goal is a quick retrieve, keeping the fish in the water as much as possible, and reviving it before release. Here is one getting revived for a successful release this morning with guide, Sonny.
