WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO COME FISHING
The fishing in Coldbay starts in late June and Runs through late October. The local rivers get runs of Sockeye,Pink,Chum and the legendary fighting Silver Salmon along with resident Dolly Varden, Char and Steelhead. Our first fishing trips start around the first week of July and they are a combo Offshore Halibut/Lingcod Charter and trolling for a few early Salmon with stream fishing thrown in for Salmon and Dollies. This pretty much is the norm till mid August when the Schools of Silver Salmon start showing up and nose there way into the streams and tidal estuaries. During September you can add in some Duck and goose hunting along with a brant hunt. The fall fishing in Sept and October is is world class for fly or spin if your looking for giant Silver Salmon. The first week of Oct a few Steelhead start showing up along with the Silvers and Dollies. As the weather gets colder the e fish are there still but it rather miserable to go fishing in the big winds that Coldbay is known for.
