Salmon Fishing with Captain Dan on the Famous Nomad Charterboat
Salmon either Kings or Chinook season is late May through late September. Full day fishing charters leave the Black River Harbor Dock at 8:00 am Central Time, and return to the dock between 5:00 and 6:00 pm. Half day charters are from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm and 1:30 pm to 6:30 pm. Evening cruises usually leave the dock a half hour before Sunset, and are ideal for reunions, or after work get-togethers, and are great opportunities to unwind, take pictures of the sunset, or just take it easy. These cruises are a mile or less from shore.
In June and July we travel farther off shore to the deeper waters and fishing grounds for lean powerful Lake Trout and Coho as they follow baitfish and cooler water. Out in deeper water is where we find thermal bars down a little deep, or bug lines on the surface of the Lake, as the Lake Trout, Salmon and Steelhead school-up out here. There is plenty of action our here in “the deeps” and 20 fish on in a day is common.
In August, the water warms up and fish are plentiful, although lean Lake Trout are harder to find. Quality is what we’re after, as we look for nice lean Lake Trout and possibly Chinook Salmon, and the beginning of a Coho Salmon run. This is great time for “catch and release” fishing.
Call or email early for your trophy fishing trip aboard the famous Nomad. Captain Dan knows where and how to catch the biggest fish, he has been fishing for about 30 years. You can not go wrong when you fish with Captain Dan on the Nomad.
