Experience Bute Inlet
Nanook Lodge has specialized fishing the local inlets for decades with huge success. Experiencing Bute Inlet first hand can be described as seeing one of the world’s finest natural wonders blending temperate rain forest and Pacific Ocean coastal shores.
Only 400 yards from Stuart Island, mainland North America’s remote inlets provide hundreds of miles of ocean shoreline to fish and wildlife to view. In the spring Bute, Ramsey and Toba Inlets are the feeding grounds for abundant Chinook populations prior to their migratory march home.
Bute Inlet is directly west of Whistler/Blackcomb Ski Area, home of the 2010 Winter Olympics.
A variety of mature and younger Chinooks aggressively feed on the abundance of bait fish (herring) found in the inlets. Average mature fish will weigh 10-15 lbs with Tyee’s (30+) available too.
These powerful feeders provide great runs and acrobatics when hooked. An uncommon phenomenon in these inlets is “white fleshed” Chinook.
