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!

Chinook Fishing Heating Up!

Pedder Bay RV Resort & Marina - June 30, 2014

A dramatic increase in Chinook fishing occurred over the weekend. The first nine boats in on Saturday morning had a combined 14 chinook. Two over those were Tyees (over 30 pounds), one was 28 pounds and another was 27 pounds. Anchovies have been out producing all other baits, with most of the action happening at Church Rock, Trap Shack, Whirl Bay and Pedder Bay.

If you want to get out fishing now’s the time. We have guided charters leaving from our docks, or you can rent a boat and gear and go fishing yourself. The choice is yours. Come see us so we can get you out on the water and send you home with some delicious salmon!
