Royal Welcome….

Welcome fit for a King! (Don that is!)

A very special week on Steep Island as our long time guest and RCMP enthusiast and collector Don Reid and his group were greeted upon their arrival to Steep Island by RCMP officer Constable P. Gaiger of the Quadra Island Detachment in Red Serge.  A great moment and one for the history books….especially Don’s!

A Handsome Group

After a great salutation it was off to the fishing grounds and the group did well over the next couple of days fishing south and went home with buckets of fish with a couple of 28 pounders!  All in all another fantastic trip!

Fish are jumping…..

Since the beggining of June, the fishing at the south end of Quadra Island has been experiencing a great return of Chinook salmon.  The Chinook being caught are legal size to over 30 lbs. Right now the best fishing is at the Lighthouse and the “Hump” on the ebb tide.

Fishing has also had some great returns north of the Narrows. Brown’s Bay, Deepwater Bay, Chatham Point and Greensea Bay have all been producing Chinook.

There is still opportunity to book a stay and fish… looks to be a fantastic fihsing season ahead for us.

Our first fishing guests of the season have arrived and inaugarated the fish table with a couple of beautiful chinook. Inspite of the poor weather and wind guide Jon Reynolds was able to get fish in the boat, a few good misses and a double header….Great way to start the season and a promising outlook at this years fishery!

We are still taking reservations…..please call or email for rates and dates…
