Bigger salmon

Canadian Princess Resort - May 19, 2008

Vancouver Island salmon fishingGreat news for fishermen: this year, the salmon we are catching are bigger than in previous years, wuth average wieghts so far in the 18–22 lb. range. For comparison, last year we were seeing Chinook salmon in the 12–15 lb. range.

Not too much to report on the halibut front but as the waters warm they will be coming in.
