Boat Assignments

Guests will be assigned in groups of four. The foursome will fish together the entire stay unless other arrangements are made. You may switch places with others on another boat, but must inform skippers or the lodge manager the evening prior. Foursomes will rotate boats, and fish with different skippers on a daily basis.


Rudy BristolSince salmon fishing usually involves using different lures and depths on each of the four poles set out while trolling, a fair method of selecting who fights in the next fish, and on what pole, must be determined prior to fishing.

METHOD ONE (Strike Rotation): A random drawing will be made to determine a fishing order. The first fish that strikes on any of the poles will be fought by person #1, the second, by person #2, etc. What determines a turn should be clearly understood by all the people aboard (I.e., if fish is missed, the turn rotates to next in line or turn is kept until a fish is landed). This method insures everyone will get an equal share of fish caught, provided a fish is caught on each turn at the poles.

METHOD TWO (Pole Rotation): A random drawing will be made to determine a pole assignment order. Anglers will rotate poles every hour and will fight any fish which strikes his/her assigned pole during that hour. This method provides each angler with a chance to catch a fish during the entire trolling period and not having to wait until three fish are caught before fishing again.
