It’s hard to believe August is already upon us – our season has been flying by! Over the course of the past few weeks we’ve been able to send our guests home with jam-packed boxes of a variety of fish; halibut, salmon, lingcod and rock fish have been plentiful across the board.
Offshore fishing has picked up substantially, consistently producing our guests Chinook salmon limits each trip. The west coast of Vancouver island including the Ucluelet, Bamfield area will see lots of Coho and they are starting to show. Keepers will top up your daily salmon limits. Bottom fishing has been resulting in some nice above-average halibut in the 50-60 lb range plus lots of great 30 lb fish. Our guides have also found some new lingcod spots that are producing daily limits of these prized (and tasty!) fish.
We’re back on the water every day so check out our Facebook and Instagram posts for daily updates!
The weather has also been beautiful here at Eagle Nook Resort. The calm mornings are getting us out and back from the fishing grounds in record time. Once back at the dock our team fillets, portions, and packages the daily catch while guests enjoy Chef Jimmy’s variety of hot dock lunches (the mac and cheese is a definite crowd pleaser).
Once we are back at the dock there’s time to jump in a kayak or on paddle board and enjoy the amazing weather. No one is too young or too old to take advantage of a sunny cruise around Jane Bay.
