Largest Chinook : 51lbs.
Largest Halibut : 85lbs.

Sorry it has been a little longer then I would have liked to egt back to you on how the fishing has been.  Well the word for this report is "extreme"!  The trip from August 16 to 20...absolutely creamed them again, lots of Coho and big Chinook came in from the trip.   The Chinook fishing was really heavy down south of the lodge at Trenamen Island and Funky Rock.  Kettle Inlet, the Honey Hole and Borrowman all steadily produced big fish too.  Quite a bit of ground fishing was done down south and at Aranazu Banks.  Coho were pretty thick everywhere but the north end of the island as trollers had hit it hard.  But lucky for us they haven't found all the new nooks and crannies we ahve been fishing.  The last couple of days have been quite different, terrential downpours and heavy winds, kept us close to camp.  Not much fun and with all the rain it led off the runs up river, there is signs of some new runs coming in right now so fingers crossed for the year's last trip.
