2018 Fishing Outlook
for Hakai Pass - British Columbia, Canada
|Current Canadian Fishing Possession Limits for 2018 Fishing Season|
2017 was another banner fishing year at HAKAI LODGE. It was one of our best years for catching Chinook salmon (Springs and Kings). Our guests caught many Tyee salmon over 40 pounds. There were a few King salmon catches over 40 pounds, on their way to Rivers Inlet.
There were plenty of Coho all season. Halibut were plentiful too, with some halibut catches over 70 pounds. Guest were catching lingcod over 25 pounds.
At Hakai Pass, we are consistently seeing more King salmon in the 30 – 40 pound range, Coho in the 12 to 20-plus pound range, and halibut over 50 pounds. Lingcod and red snapper have been plentiful, and are favorites of our guests.
The excellent weather conditions in the north Pacific Ocean will hold for at least another year, bringing plenty of food supplies to attract a strong 2018 Salmon return.
The Canadian Fisheries Department are predicting strong King Salmon returns for the 2018 fishing season at Hakai Pass, based on the escapement numbers they recorded 4-5 years ago. It will be those fish migrating by on their journey south.
