Quatsino Lodge has been working with the volunteers at the Marble River for almost a decade now.  Their task is to provide the hatchery care for the young salmon to be reared in and our task is to provide the smolts salmon with a rearing stage for 2 months prior to being released into the ocean.  Most years this has worked very well.  Some years climate has played havoc with getting our brood stock.  Fall 2011 the waters were too high to safely collect the brood stock and Fall 2013 the waters were too low and the fish didn't mill up where they could be caught.  Fall 2012 was successful and in 2013 we had another batch of salmon smolts to rear.  The ocean rearing program was producing 60% of the returning salmon to the Marble River.  We are hopeful that this fall again we will be able to collect brood stock so that Quatsino Lodge can raise the salmon in the netpen once more.  Hopefully we will have an update soon.

Hi and Hey,
I have meant to email you and tell you how much fun it was for Gary and his friends to fish with you last April.  It just happened that we had some of the best salmon ever from your lodge.  That winter salmon is the greatest.  So delicate in flavor and texture!  I happened to cook it just perfectly, too.  So delicious.  Hope you had a great season and I sure wish that we could have a few days with you this next summer.  Both Clark and Randy have wives that love to fish as well.  If you get a chance, email us and let us know how your summer was. Gary so enjoyed being with you both and to see Nicki too.  Thanks again, Cookie
