Nimmo Bay Heli Adventures 8-4-2011

We idled from Sullivan Bay to Nimmo Bay Resort on Aug 3rd did some bottom fishing that afternoon and had a nice dinner with the staff and lots of good wine. Next day we were ready to go on the helicopter at 8 AM but fog held up the trip until almost noon so we lost a half a day on this trip. We took off at 12:30 PM and weaved up through the foggy tree tops and broke out into wonderful sunshine over Kingcome Inlet.  First stop was on a Wakeman river bank and Robert caught the first fish. Next we headed up the valley to different river on a very tight sand bar. This landing was on a bend in the river and it was an awesome location with barely enough room for the chopper to land. Here we hit pay dirt catching 4 nice Coho on light spinning rods with ten pound test line. Robert each got two nice Cohos.  Next  our (pilot guide) Don, rolled out a lunch fit for a king, complete with a table cloth, silver & crystal, fine wine, home made bread, sandwiches, cookies, fruit, and perfectly chilled white Pinot wine. We fished some more after lunch then flew to Constantine Glacier and landed on top of this 6000 foot high chunk of ice and granite

Tonight we had another outrageous dinner at the lodge then we will move on to Wells passage in the morning for some serious Salmon fishing.  This is a day we will not forget!
