The weather is hot and so is the fishing! The Chinook (King) salmon are coming up the rivers and our guests are landing some large fish. These salmon challenge an angler’s skills and stamina! Lachlan Allen, a first-time fly fisher from Australia, landed a 50lb Chinook after an epic battle lasting almost an hour. This powerful fish took Lachlan down the Kalum river, by foot and by boat, until he finally caught up with it a great distance from where it was first hooked. Andrew Rushton, Owner/Head Guide of Kalum River Lodge, netted the fish and brought it to the bank. After taking some photos for the lodge wall, the fish was released to continue its journey up river. Lachlan has caught many fish before, but this is truly a fish of a lifetime!!
