A Note from Lodge Owner Barbara Kelly on 40 Years of RISC
It’s that time of year when we all think of what we’d like to be doing during the summer & start making plans. Many of our readers have already decided that it’s time to go fishing & have booked their trip with us for this summer. And what better place than the Rivers Inlet Sportsman’s Club (RISC) to help us celebrate our 40th year of operation! Long-time guest Mike McG. who fished all over the coast before he found our lodge said it succinctly, “I tried the rest & came back to the best.” If you haven’t booked your 2023 fishing trip yet, contact us today. Call 800-663-2644, text 604-938-3677or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This time 40 years ago, I was preparing for the first Sportsman’s Club season by applying to the various provincial & federal governments for permission to operate. The floats & buildings were being constructed, boats & equipment purchased, staff hired & trained, & by June our first guests arrived. One of our first trophy Chinook/King salmon was a 54 pounder landed at the ‘Wall’ minutes from the lodge, where most of the really big that make Rivers Inlet renown are caught. Recent statistics from the Canadian Department of Fisheries & Oceans (DFO) support this fact, along with other areas close by such as The Dome, Cranston Point & Kevin’s Corner.
If you have not already done so, & to ensure you get the dates to fit your calendar of events, do book your fishing trip today & dream of the fish you will catch at the Sportsman’s Club. Not only giant Chinook salmon, but coho/silvers, halibut & lingcod as well. We hope to see you in 2023.
Sincerely, Barbara Kelly/Owner.
