Big Bites and Frayed Cable – Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report

Vancouver salmon fishing report


Thrasher Rock has been fishing great this past week. The Grande and Thrasher reef have been producing some nice chinook. Anglers who are willing to take a chance and venture out off shore have been greatly rewarded with some fast paced fishing once they have located fish. We have been hitting our fish from 75ft down to 135ft on the riggers on a mixture of spoons and hootchies. Productive flashers have had some glow on them as the water has been pretty dirty. Here is your Vancouver salmon fishing report for May 30, 2015

Shot stuff

Entrance, Snake, and Five Fingers have also been fishing well. The hot depths for us at these locations were 160-200ft on the riggers. The fish seem to be down deep as the water up there is very blue.

Hot Hooch

The Hump has continued to fish slow. If you can make it, we recommend you take the time to run over to the other side.

West Vancouver will start producing for coho in the next couple weeks. There is already a decent number of coho in the Capilano River, so it is only a matter of time before the saltwater fishing takes off.

This time of year if you are thinking about booking a charter we do strongly recommend trying to make it over to Gabriola, as it often provides some of the best chinook fishing of the whole year. The best vancouver salmon fishing is likely yet to come as it usually gets red hot late May and early June. Our phone has been ringing steadily, so if you want to take advantage of this awesome chinook fishing, please give us a call as soon as possible as open dates are becoming limited.

To book your trip give Jason a call at 778-788-8582.  If you are heading out in your own boat, stop by the shop for the latest up to the day report and info on the hot flashers and spoons.

See you in the shop or on the water,
