Fishing Continues to be Good at Pedder Bay

Pedder Bay RV Resort & Marina - July 22, 2014

How’s your summer been so far? Ours has been great! We’re right in the heart of fishing season now and we’re looking forward to what the rest of the year has in store for us.

So how has the fishing been?

Halibut tides have been very good last over week, with gentle movement allowing folks to work their areas with outstanding results.

The salmon fishing also continues to be steady. Monday was an exceptionally good day, with some great catches in Beecher Bay, and Pedder Bay. The best results continue to come from using anchovy with a “Bloody Nose” teaser head at depths from 50-95’. More and more Coho are showing up as well and we’re also starting to see a few Pinks.

Successful Seminar and Fishing Update

Pedder Bay RV Resort & Marina - July 15, 2014

Hello again from Pedder Bay RV Resort & Marina!

We recently held our first fishing seminar, hosted by Gary Cooper, and it was a huge success. Lots of anglers showed up to learn the tricks of the trade from one of the best. Everyone had a great time and learned some valuable tips for their next fishing excursion. If you missed out on the first seminar don’t worry. Gary will be holding another one later this year. Check back with us, either here on ‘Dock Talk’ or on Facebook and Twitter, to find out the next date!

Fishing continues to be good at Pedder Bay. We’re finding that there are generally two “bites” for Chinook a day, however, the times are unpredictable. The fish are out there, you just have to be patient! We’re also seeing a lot of hatchery Coho now. These delicious fish are fierce fighters and always fun to reel in. Finally, although they’re not open yet, the Sockeye are starting to show up which is a good sign for things to come.

Keeping checking back with us for more fishing updates. Until next time, tight lines and keep on fishing!
