Yes, the 2022 season has ended with lots of fish being boxed & flown out to places far & near. The coho/silvers showed up in great numbers, as did the halibut. The Chinook/kings were not as huge as usual, but the 40 pounder in the photo was an exciting catch. We had several very large halibut with one in the photo measuring just an inch below the DFO limit for catch retention.
We take this opportunity to thank the more than 500 guests who chose the Sportsman’s Club for their fishing adventure this year. Some of our guests have anxiously waited patiently for the fishing lodge to open once more after being closed due to the pandemic in 2020 & 2021. As one relieved guest said to Barbara at the lodge, ‘…I need this trip every year to make my life complete’.
As many of our readers are aware, most of our long-time employees were unable to return for a full season once they had moved to career jobs. We were happy that guides Jakob, Gerald, & Scott took part of their vacation to come back to guide & help train the new employees.
Working at a wilderness lodge requires a huge commitment. Some of our employees left spouses & children at home for the season. We thank all of them for their hard work, loyalty & dedication to making every guest’s fishing trip as much an enjoyable experience as possible.
