    Im kinda new to the forum and thought the north island should get a reports section. I'll be heading to alder bay for 2 weeks in late july to early august, has anyone been up that way recently? Also wondering if there's a fuel dock closer than telegraph cove? maybe over on in alert bay? If anyones up there when I am maybe we could hook up as my wife and baby wont be going out to much.

    There wasn't fuel at Alert Bay last year - Port McNeill is the only other alternative to Telegraph unless you want to buy Marine gas at the Petrocan at Hyde Park and hump jerry cans down to your boat. That's what I've been doing up there for the past several years and it has worked just fine.
    If you can get to Princess Auto, pick up a "jiggler". Makes syphoning fuel from the jerry can to your boat a breeze.

  7. To fill jerry cans there is a gas station beside the ferry dock in Sointula. They took away the public dock though so you would have to pull up on the gravel beach.....

    Ya thats what I usually do too (just carry them down) but its a real hassle going to the gas station every couple days, not to mention theyre heavy. Anyone have much success for lings or springs up there? Ive done well for hali and cohos If anybody wants to trade spots you can pm me.

  11. At Telegraph Cove Aug 14-22 this year, first trip there with the Albemarle.
    Will visit Echo Bay for the Pig Roast on Aug 15!
    Such a spectacular area.

    Closest fuel by water to Alder Bay is Telegraph Cove.
    Marine gas also avail at Port McNeill and Echo Bay.

    Arrived today via Blackfish sound. Cruised along Crease island, saw some bait, 3 boats, no action so traveled towards Donaghy point, where 12 boats worked, so trolled and got a 9 lber. 120' on a green/white 4" spoon. No bait showing. Stomach contained a large bait fish with dark red meat. No skin, no head, unknown.

    sounds like it was hot at duvall yesterday. if you are going to be in Mcneil on the 27th I think you may be in luck.

    What type of salmon are going through the area right now? Is it getting thick with pinks yet?

    Fished out of Tel Cove 4 full days, (June 19 to 22). Mostly the backside of Malcolm. Landed two middling springs and one nice coho, in almost 40 hrs. on the water. Also got 4 halibut, (two were incident and two while jigging). All under 25 lbs, but still, very nice. All in all, pretty quiet for salmon, but the halibut was a welcome delight. Weather was fine-almost too perfect. The 'fish gods' giveth good weather, but maybe they taketh good fishing??
