Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: July 19, 2019

Vancouver_Chinook_Salmon_Fishing

Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report Well, it was about time we were able to keep some chinook this week and what a great few days it was on Monday and Tuesday.   The seas were literally flat calm so all of our boats headed across to the Gulf Islands and we were greeted by a lot of eager chinook.  Fishing was fantastic and our guests soaked up the sun and enjoyed bent rods with lots of double headers.  There were countless chinook hooked from 150-250 on the downriggers.  The hot setup was a Salty Dawg flasher with a chartreuse splatter back hootchy or chartreuse glow double skirt.   The hook ups were so steady we eventually just used a dummy flasher and a spoon with no flasher. …

Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report Fishing this past week was good in a variety of places; there are lots of options, so let’s take a closer look at each. As usual for this time of year we are seeing good numbers of chinook off South Bowen, as we have for about the last 4 weeks.  There are a few slow days sprinkled in there, but for the most part the fishing has been excellent.  It has been good close to the rocks in as tight as 150 and as far out as 450 feet of water.  Each day is a bit different depending on the tides and winds.   Best depths on the down riggers have been from 80-140. Mid-week a nice school of chinook also…

Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: November 2, 2018

Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report We haven’t been out on the water much this past week with windy and rainy weather so we don’t have too much fresh information to report. We are basically in the early winter chinook season holding pattern. What does that mean? Well it means there are a few fish around and as usual, if you wait for the “hot report” those fish are long gone, so the best thing to do is go when the nice weather days line up with your personal schedule. We mentioned this in previous reports, but with the 35-45 mm heavy rain fall warning for tomorrow, make sure you have lots of juice in your batteries and make sure those float switches for your forward…

Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: October 19, 2018

Captain Eddie's guests enjoying our balmy October weather! Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report In terms of the guide business we are very thankful for the wonderful late fall weather we have had the last few weeks, and our focus has been on fixing up our fleet of Grady White’s. If you are running your own boat, now is a perfect time fix everything on the boat as its comfortable out and still warm enough even for paint projects. In terms of fishing reports, the Cap Mouth is pretty much a wrapped up done deal. There are the occasional fish, and I have heard of the odd fish being caught, but I wouldn’t recommend it for the rest of the season. So, if you are heading...

Capilano_Mouth_Fishing

Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report Well it looks like they aren’t going to shut down sockeye, or at least I haven’t seen any emails as of today. It’s late in the season and there are still some around, lots of jumpers down at South Arm, but there aren’t too many fresh fish left to show up.   Eddie was down there on a longer trip on Wednesday and did well for sockeye and then headed to the Cap for chinook, so that is a good game plan if you have the weather and the right tides. The Cap Mouth chinook fishery is now in full swing and Lars, Eddie, Khoi, and Philippe all had some great catches there mid week on our 5-8 hour charters. Green…

Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: June 29, 2018

Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report Looks like we are going to have a bit of mixed bag this weekend with the weather and the winds with a SE and some rain, then switching to a NW and some sun later in the weekend and into next week.   Depending on what day you go out you may see it flat calm or you might get NW 20 plus, so lets cover some options for the Gulf Islands as well as a short run keeping it close to home. If you are heading over to the Gulf Islands and fishing spots like Porlier or Thrasher, the fish are generally on the structure this time of year, down deep, looking for bait balls of herring hiding on the...

Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: June 8, 2018

A productive day fishing Thrasher this week. Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report We are in for some SE winds this weekend as the low pressure system sets in so make sure to bring your sweaters, jackets, and even some rain gear as it has been a bit chilly out these past few days. David and son had a great day out on the water with Captain Eddie. The fishing has cooled off as well, at least locally. For the most part we have been running over to Entrance or Thrasher, which is pretty standard for this time of year. Once over there we are fishing the structure. There are still some fish offshore but generally in June you want to get on the structure as...

Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: Friday May 4, 2018

SALTWATER FISHING REPORTS Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report This past week saw some great fishing for those who were able to get out. Anglers who fished locally found fish at the QA, The Hump, South Bowen, and even a few were found in the harbour by those who stayed close by. Depths on this side of the straight have been anywhere from around 60′ down to 150′, with a few being encountered at 30′ as rods are being stacked. Across the way, anglers were finding fish in the Gulf Islands, as well as up at Thrasher and off shore on The Highway.  With the water being quite a bit more clear over there, anglers have been encountering fish anywhere from 130′ all the way down…

Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: Friday April 27, 2018

Our guests back at the dock with their catch after some productive trips with Captain Jason this week. Fishing has been nothing short of exceptional this past week with good numbers of chinook being taken in pretty much every spot I can think of. There are now chinook off South Bowen from Roger Curtis to Cowan both inshore and offshore, from the Bell to the QA, out on the Hump and off Gabriola and Nanaimo. The when and where is simply a factor on how much time you have and how windy it is and perhaps the size of your boat. Either way, the results have often been the same with great catches being the norm, not the exception. How long will this hot fishing...

Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: Friday April 20, 2018

Can't go wrong with day's like this over at Gabriola! Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report The good fishing continued this past week in our local waters as well as over in Nanaimo to the Gulf Islands. Lets take a closer look at what is going on locally. There is definitely a good number of chinook in our local waters. As usual for this time of year there is a mix of red and white springs with most of the bigger fishing being the whites. This past week there were good numbers of fish caught from the Bell out to the QA, out past the QA, and on the Hump as well. Some of the days the wind kept us closer to the Bell and we...
