Sound is home to the largest wild steelhead population in the world, and resort
guides know all the hot spots.
Fly fish for spring steelhead, fall salmon
or cutthroat trout throughout the sound's extensive river system.
Cypre, Megin and Tranquil rivers are the stuff of legend. Access drop-off points
by boat, then walk or drive in.
Deep sea fishing excursions are most promising from May through August and
average six hours of fishing per day (we call it a half-day). Guests depart at
7 a.m. and return in time for a late lunch, or lay-about until the 1 p.m. launch
and fish in the afternoon, returning in time for dinner at about 7 p.m.
Either way, guests enjoy a half-day free to enjoy spa services and other resort
amenities. And, since couples are often split on their passion for fishing, the
spa option is a popular one.
From May through September, find coho (silver
salmon) and sea bass. At the height of summer, giant tyee (king salmon) reign
supreme. Halibut are prolific from March through September, and ocean fly fishing
is best from July through September; fish for coho (silvers) and rock fish in
a 25-foot open-air centre-console vessel.
Locals have long-favoured Megin and Pretty Girl lakes as bountiful sources of
cutthroat Trout. Access is by floatplane however, so Transportation surcharges
apply. Choose float Tubes or kick boats, fly or spinning rods.
The dock system that surrounds the floating resort promises many secret
spots to sit and jig away an afternoon - or two. Mom and Dad can
sit and relax, sight unseen in the outdoor lounge above, and keep watch over
