A West Coast Winter is on It’s Way…

Hot summer days and long summer sunsets are now a thing of the past on Vancouver Island, but while the fishing season may have come to a close last month things have by no means quieted down for the crew at Eagle Nook Resort & Lucky Sportfishing. After getting settled back into our Victoria office in mid-September, it was right back out to Barkley Sound to finish up “winterizing” the resort and make sure our winter caretakers were well prepared for the cooler, wetter seasons ahead. Since then our general manager, Dan, has been back up a couple times to work on winter maintenance tasks since it’s never too early to start prepping for next summer!

One of the last catches of 2017, a 28 pound Chinook landed right inside the Sound!

A couple of our guides have been out fishing around Victoria and Sidney since returning home as well. While it doesn’t compare to summertime salmon fishing in Barkley Sound, they’ve gotten into a couple nice Chinook each time they’ve been out. They’ll be heading inland this weekend to try their hands at sturgeon fishing in Harrison B.C., and we’re excited to see the results of that trip next week. After sturgeon fishing they’ll be heading on a road trip to meet guests in Alberta and set up fishing trips for next year. It’s a tough job but somebody’s gotta do it!

We’re already booking trips well into 2018 – July and August are booking up quickly, and some dates are already sold out. 2017 was one of our busiest seasons to date, and we’re expecting 2018 to surpass that, so if you’re thinking about a salmon and halibut fishing trip for next year give us a call; we’d be happy to talk about the options and put together a customized package for you!

We’re available 7 days a week at (250) 880 0636 or info@eaglenook.com.
