Fishing Report for October 2, 2009 –

Posted by on Oct 2, 2009 in Blog | 0 comments

Lots of coho. The river has seen over 35000 through Stamp Falls counters to date and as of October 2nd the limits go from 2 to 4 either hatchery or wild. Great opportunities are here for some great fall fishing. Due to lower numbers of chinook it is now non-retention for them. We are still permitted to fish bait from the bucket down and will help to entice the numbers of coho along with steelhead.

It has been an excellent fall fishing season and will continue till we turn the corner to key in on summer steelhead. We currently have the boats in the lower somass-stamp and will be moving a boat to the upper stamp very shortly. You won’t want to miss out on the fantastic scenery and fishing that will be happening throughout the month. We also will be doing trips to the Nitinat starting October 15th when it is open for coho. If you haven’t planned a trip or are thinking about it don’t hesitate to call. We can be reached by e-mail or phone and will return calls after 4:00 pm daily. ( 1-250-723-0136 or 1-250-720-5449.

Today on the river the Coho’s were out in numbers.  I’m holding a fine example of a wild pacific Coho returning to the Stamp River here in Port Alberni.  This doe weighed in the mid teens and put on a real show for all to see.  Long runs with the reel screamin’ and a series of tail dances that would make any fisherman envious.  There are not that many days of great fishing for these salmon this season.  Before you know it we’ll be right into the winter run Steelhead.  Make sure you give us a call at West Coast River Charters to book your trip today.  Prime dates always book up fast and I know you want to get in on the action!
