And to add Zest to all this;the Pink Salmon projection for 2013 is excellent with many many fish..as of early August we have seen large schools to once again sustain a healthy and upcoming fly fishing season.
...we saw many good size Pink Salmon being caught and appreciated from Early August thru Labourday week-end...Chinook were caught off the beaches more than normal this year up until about Mid September... The Coho were bouncing around as only they can..Saratoga was excellent all through September into Early October,Nile Creek Area turned on as of mid September and all through October.. as in this Thanksgiving day (oct14th)Coho on a Handlebar with many more about..see individual Area Reports
Beach Season 2012 was excellent Pink Salmon in very good numbers with lots of Coho but you had to move about to find them ,Chinook Fly Fishing was good if you worked for them as with some Chum ..Cutties off the beach are still a bet...see individual area reports

Situated at the centre of "Canada's unique Beach Fishery for Pacific Salmon, is Nile Creek, and surprisingly, or perhaps not so surprisingly, nearby is located One of the finest "Fly Shops" in all of Canada. The need for such a service was felt for many years, and now, with the help of many people Nile Creek Fly Shop is able to fulfill a much wanted and convenient enterprise. As with all things in life ,"change" is ever present, and so change, within the Fly Fishing world is now galloping at a grand pace. No longer is this an all male experience, now we see a growing interest from all walks of life, young and old, man and woman, families and tours, beauty queens to those physically compromised..."this fishery is an all inclusive experience" that is not only available but affordable to all!
and truely a marvel at hand !
