Summer 2024 – The Countdown Is On!

We are almost exactly 60 days from opening day & we are already feeling the excitement of another amazing summer of fishing & fun times on the water! After another record season in 2023, anticipation levels are running high for the same again in 2024! If you have not made your summer fishing plans yet, there is still time & we have dates available but don’t delay, call now & book today! The Department of Fisheries Oceans (DFO) are predicting another year of record salmon returns in our area. Recent reports for up North where the fishing season has already begun are good to excellent, so there has never been a better time to come fishing in BC!

This is the busiest time of year for us at RISC as we book up the last remaining spots & prepare for the summer season. We have the team assembled with mostly returning staff & a few new recruits. Now we just need to get the finishing touches on some float construction & repairs at the lodge & all the pre-season supplies shipped in by barge. Our entire fleet of 7 larger guide boats are all in the shop in town, with many having been refit, rewired & repowered. On June 20th we assemble the rig-up crew to run all the boat into Rivers Inlet from Port Hardy on the Northern tip of Vancouver Island. We then tow the lodge in pieces across the Inlet, put the big “jig saw puzzle” together & the fire up power/water & we are ready to welcome our eager anglers.
