Looking Forward to 2011
After an eventful October here in Port Alice as heavy rain and a few minor mudslides temporarily disrupted life for people on the north end of the island, it was back to business for Copper Coast. As many of you know the rental property was adversely affected by the slides and some damage was done to one of the units. At the end of the day the damage was minimal and quickly repaired which means we are back in business for last minute Christmas ventures!!
For those looking to book well in advance it’s not too early to start thinking about the 2011 salmon run as we expect July, August and September to be great fishing months this upcoming year. This last year was, by all accounts, an excellent year for both Coho & Spring (Chinook) and we look forward to another stellar western shore fishing season. Don’t believe us? Check out the photo below of former Port Alice village mayor and active guide Larry Pepper who caught a 46lbs + Chinook one fine August day this past summer!!!
Weather in Port Alice during the month of November was mild with lows at only around -5 but hovering around the 0 mark and as high as 10. As many folks on the island and greater mainland can attest: you don’t have to shovel snow in stark contrast with our friends from the Prairies who deal with the painstaking daily job for greater parts of November through March!!
Also, attached is a great view of Friggin Island and the awesome natural beauty the property offers.
Here is wishing everyone a Merry Christmas season and we look forward to wishing you an excellent 2011 in the December letter. Where did 2010 go??
