Can the Fishing Get Any Better? Yes it Can!

Canadian Princess Resort - July 30, 2014

We didn’t think the fishing could get any better… but it has! The Raven Princess brought an incredible 95 fish back to the dock on Saturday! They were catching halibut and salmon in the morning, and then moved on to Rockfish for the afternoon. It just proves that whatever kind of fish you’re targeting, it’s out there. Or you could go for all three! The choice is yours.

It wasn’t just a busy weekend out on the water. Last weekend was “Ukee Days,” a 3 day long festival, featuring live music, vendors, a parade, as well as games and fun for the whole family. The event was a huge success (as it always is) and we’re already looking forward to next year’s festivities.

The sun is shining and the fishing is good. What more can you ask for? We only have limited space available for the rest of the season, so book your trip soon to get in on the great fishing this year!


Limited Space Available at the Canadian Princess

Canadian Princess Resort - July 28, 2014

We’ve sure been busy over the last week! We’ve been sending out a full fleet of boats nearly every day as anglers want to take advantage of one of the best fishing seasons in 30 years.  As you can see from our photos we’re still seeing some really nice fish being caught, and we expect that to carry through into August.

Along with all the fish it also looks like we’ll be seeing lots of sun over the next week, which should make fishing even more enjoyable than it already has been!

If you want to get in on the action we’d recommend you book your trip soon. We only have a few open dates available this summer, and they’re going fast! Call 1-800-663-7090 to book your trip. We hope to see you out on the water soon!


Lots of Salmon, Halibut and Whales!

Canadian Princess Resort - July 21, 2014

The fishing continues to be excellent at the Canadian Princess Resort. We’re continually surprised by the number of salmon that keep showing up at the dock. The number seems to grow every day! There are a large amount of salmon around 25 lbs being caught, and plenty more 15-20 pounders.

Halibut fishing has also been strong. We had an especially large one caught just recently, estimated to be 65-75 lbs. Although we had to release it due to the size limits in place this year you can imagine it was quite a thrill for the lucky angler!

Our new Kingfisher continues to be the most popular boat on the dock. It’s been booked solid every day and continues to bring in large numbers of fish.

In addition to all the fish, we’re also spotting a good number of whales on our Nature Cruises. These majestic creatures are truly one of the most magical sights you can see out on the water, so don’t miss out!

If you haven’t visited us yet in 2014 there’s still time. We look forward to seeing you this year!
