July Fishing Report

Fishing has been great the whole month of July! Many silver sided Salmon and Steelhead are being caught! Limit catches of trout are the norm. We have been fishing off Island in 150 to 130 feet of water. Were your spoons and troll troll flashers with atomic flies have been doing of the damage.

Just look at these pictures.


The salmon bite has been really tough as of late but we are still finding our fair share in the Henderson Harbor Trench and off the finger. Trout fishing has remained AWESOME. Most of the salmon have been coming on white e-chips and pro-am fly’s. When the sun gets high and it’s not too cloudy switch to chrome colors including chartreuse for you flasher fly set ups. Best depth of water has been 115 feet, 90 – 100 feet down. Good Luck.


Fishing has remained FANTASTIC this season so far as we get into the latter part of the summer and what a lot of anglers tradionaly call SALMON SEASON. We have been able to put our clients into the winners circle a couple of times this year and we are very PROUD of the fact that we do not have an EIGHT boat fleet! THIS OWNER and CAPTAIN is always hands on with my customers and giving it his all to put them on the fish and stay on the FISH.

We still have some choice dates available so please give us a call! We have been working with the fine folks at LOTS A LIMITS lodge on some of their larger groups.

Lately the fishing has been very good out in front of Calf island in 130 – 170 feet of water. There is a hard thermocline down 65 feet. Spoons in the NK 28’s have been good in the banana peel and also the Warrior spoons in the UV series has been crushing fish all season long.

MID JULY - Henderson Harbor Big Fish Shoot Out WINNERS

WINNERS in the Henderson Harbor Big Fish Shoot Out to Support Breast Cancer Research.

Fishing this weekend remained very strong…..Trout fishing has remained very solid as well as the SALMON fishing. Over the last weekend we had the Walt Cuniff Party, and the LaPlante / Radely Parties. Fishing for both groups was very good with above average brown trout and king salmon being taken off wire dipsey divers. Saturday and Sunday was the Big Shoot out in support of Breast Cancer research. We had multiple winners on the boat that day with 2nd and 3rd place trout and a 2nd place Salmon at the end of the day Saturday. Both the Salmon and the Trout held out and got both Sandy LaPlante and Jeff Radely checks at the end of the day!

Congrats to both Sandy and Jeff! AWESOME Job. BTW this is the second time this year EXCURSION CHARTERS has gotten their clients in the winner’s circle !

July Fishing... So Far

Fishing is solid everywhere in out of the Henderson Harbor area. Bass fishing remains good out around both Gallo and Stoney Islands. Bass are taking everything from soft plastics to live bait between 10-20 feet of water.

Offshore fishing still is good…SALMON started to show up about a week ago off Calf Island and Stoney Point lighthouse. Fish are in 135-155 feet of water. Look for the marks on your sonar and set up for either trout or the salmon.

Some pictures from some recent trips….

September 13 & 14, 2014 - Salmon

Fishing remains strong in the eastern basin. Fish are still staging and things are running late. The guys in the river are not catching lot of fish. They are just not there.....which makes it better for the lake fisherman.

And please bananas! :)

September Salmon Report... So Far

Currently I think the run is a week or two behind schedule from where it should be. We have been having a lot of action throughout the day. Recently it would almost seem Mid Day to be the best. A LOT of silver colored salmon are being caught STILL......and Mike McMannus's favorite....lakers!! Here's some pics of some of the great customers we have taken out recently.

August Salmon Report

The bite is on! After being delayed the fish are just now starting to stage in and around the Henderson Harbor area. The trout fishing has remained solid as well. Fish are in the trench area, as well as off the lighthouse. Flasher fly combos off the riggers and on divers are working great.

I STILL HAVE DATES OPEN so give me a call!!

Lots A Trout and Salmon!

Worked with a good friend Tim Meador who owns the Lots A Limits Lodge and Guide Service. I had these guys for three days last week and we had some absolutely spectacular weather. Fishing was not too bad either. Went out to the shipping lanes off Galloo Island. Had a lot of hooks ups with Mr. King spanked a few times...but we had fun and event manged to boat a few. GREAT GREAT Group of guys.

Call for some great dates still open.
