Kyuquot Opening Trip Sets New Catch Record!

June 24 2013

Catch per guest for trip at its highest

Kyuquot Salmon and Halibut First Trip of Season 2013What an opening week.  Repeat guests at both the ship and lodge encountered large abundances of all species of fish that we seek here in Kyuquot. At times some of the species became almost a nuisance.

The addition of Wild Coho is what tipped our catch charts here this last trip.  The photo on the left captures what the average day fishing has been like.

Right now a south easter moved in and we are getting our salmon in shore and will be back offshore tomorrow. Great weather in the forecast starting Thursday onwards.

Limits are very generous:

2 Chinook per day/4 possession
4 Coho per day/ 2 of which may be wild (inside area 26)
2 Coho per day/hatchery only (offshore area 126)

1 Halibut/2 possession / Slot limit requirements

3 Ling cod/ 6 possession


We have some trips still available for Kyuquot. Including some last minute specials for this coming week. Drop us a note for dates!

This will be 17 years for us fishing in Kyuquot Sound.  There is no other better place to be as we meet the great migration of all Southern bound Chinook stocks along the shelf.

Many of these fish are southern migrating US origin Chinook. The runs are in the  hundreds of thousands.  

We offer accommodation, all meals in our guided packages as well as the best guides around.   We supply all the equipment and everything you need for a successful day.  Sign up for our newsletter, or like us on Facebook and you will always have the latest information.
