Chinook Salmon

June 15, 2016

So the season has kicked off with some nice Chinook Salmon.

The Norwegian fish biologist landed this beauty and what a battle. This young lady had veins popping out of her forearms and fingers. She hopped out of the boat onto the gravel shoreline, steep and hard to stand on. A battle of wills and it was not long Kristen brought this beast from the Pacific Ocean into the net.

Awesome pics today all around.

Clients chippy and VI resident Philip hit the jetboat trip today and after a massive scrap Philip is admiring a fresh Chinook minutes from the sea.

Chippy himself is all smiles with a bar of local silver.

Fly fishing with the clear water has produced some nice ones as you can see in the pic with angling guide Mike Bell, cradling his Spey caught Chinook Salmon.

A nice variety of trips this week and all month as the Chinook run continues.
