The early birds continued to get the best worms this weekend, with the AM action being strongest by far, and most of the pressure being concentrated around the east side waters of Langara Island -- so no change from last week.

The fishing patterns have been quite consistent for the past 5-6 days: strong morning bites at Cohoe Point and Andrews Point, with some good flurries up off McPherson and No Name, followed by afternoons of sporadic action in various areas as the salmon disperse.

Around Cohoe and Andrews, Chinook and Coho salmon are being found mostly at the usual depths of 10-30 pulls, but a few are sitting deeper.

Along Graham Island, Seath, Gunia and Boulder Points have yielded some nice fish in the afternoon, including the 43.5-pound Chinook above, caught offshore from Seath Point and the largest retained this week.

Sockeye salmon are passing through our waters in large numbers right now, and can often be seen jumping out of the water when they are present. This is the one species of Pacific salmon that feeds on invertebrates, instead of the herring or needlefish that we use as bait, so we rarely catch Sockeye even when they are abundant in our waters. But we have had three of them hit the docks so far this trip.

Bottom fishing has been slow this weekend, due to the west side being close with large swells, but some nice Halibut have been found off the east side of Langara. A 40+ pound Halibut was taken offshore of the Jalun River, and plenty of 10-15 pounders have been picked up at Al's Halibut hole (offshore from Cohoe Point).

Several huge Ocean Sunfish, or mola mola, have been sighted around the island the past two weeks. This one above was estimated to be around 700 pounds! These Sunfish are definitely the most unusual species we see in our waters. They can reach sizes of 10 feet and over 2000 pounds. They are usually observed barely moving along the surface, and their large fins can sometimes be mistaken for those of sharks. They also belong to a family of fish that includes many of the worlds's most unusual species -- pufferfish, filefish, triggerfish and porcupinefish are all relatives.

"What a great trip"
Review Created On: Nov 03, 2017

This was a fantastic trip. The fishing was absolutely incredible, we went home with our limit of salmon, halibut, and rockfish. After a hard day of fishing the staff were very welcoming and the food was what you would see in a high end restaurant. I will defiantly be back sometime in the near future!

"Fisherman's Dream Come True "Langara Fishing Lodge""
Review Created On: Sep 25, 2017
Overall Rating:
Details:
Being used to roughing it on fishing trips, Langara was the total luxury 1st class experience for me. Everything from the accommodation, food (the pig roast was brilliant), boats and gear were all top notch. All the staff were excellent particularly our guide Matt who got us into some fantastic world class fishing fun. This is the place memories are made from and I'm glad I didn't pass up this opportunity with my buddy and his sons.

"Amazing is a New Normal re the Langara Fishing Lodge Experience"
Review Created On: Jun 13, 2016
Overall Rating:
Details:
I just returned from my seventh experience with the Egan/Husky fishing adventure. High seas and another amazing and unique experience is what I have learned to expect as a normal for this adventure. Anchored by wonderful customer service, Bill and Suze run a fine operation in this remote and wild environment unique in Canada. The scenery makes this vacation experience truly remarkable. It changes every trip and I am looking forward to my next opportunity to return to the Langara Fishing Lodge
