- Mid season, (My favourite) Early July through mid Aug. Offshore for trophy Chinook up to 40+lbs, and chicken halibut to 40lbs.
- Peak season for trophy Chinook close to shore. Early Aug through mid Sept. This is the time we devote to the big boys that prowl the beaches searching for that last bit of feed before heading for the river.
