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...

Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: Friday April 13, 2018

Captain Eddie's guest with a nice one from a local trip this week. Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report It has been a great week of fishing, but we can’t say the same about the weather. This past week we saw our fair share of SE winds and rain. Looking to the weekend and next week it looks like we will see a break in the rain and even some NW winds and a few days of light variable winds early in the week. A Gulf Islands Grady Rainbow. On the fishing front, there is a lot going on. The best action locally has been around the QA Marker and out on the Hump. When the winds were strong and we couldn't fish there effectively we...

Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: Friday April 6, 2018

Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report The fishing has been consistent this past week with lots of options. There is currently good fishing off the Bell Buoy, QA, Hump, and the first reports of the year are coming in from Thrasher. So there are lots of options. I wouldn't say that one spot is better than any other at the moment I will say that the seals have been pretty bad off the Bell and sometimes at the QA so keep that in mind.   If you have a seal following you just pick up and move as the second you get a decent fish you will get sealed. The girls were getting done this week from the QA to the Bell! The amount of bait around...

Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: Friday March 30, 2018

Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report Our guide boats were out on a number of trips this past week and for the most part the fishing was solid.  Our guests worked hard and were rewarded with some nice fish along with some more that managed to get away, and a fair amount of undersized fish.  We have been focusing our efforts in Vancouver Harbour around the Bell Bouy and the freighters area, which has been productive this past week. There has also been a few good reports from further up Howe Sound as well as across the straight, but with consistent fishing locally the last week that is where our focus has been on most trips. The usual flashers such as the Lemon Lime Series, Salty...

Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: Friday March 23, 2018

Lars’ guest with one of three nice fish landed that day on a 5-hour trip. The fish have been anywhere from right off bottom in the shallower waters close to the Bell all the way up to about 60 feet when out in deeper waters off the QA and SE corner of the Hump.  This is where good electronics really pay off as we were clearly marking bait balls and arcs on all our trips and adapting each day based on how deep the bait and fish were. Some bait just off the bottom about a third of the way out to the QA from the Bell. We fished some bait this week but spoons were the clear winner and some bigger sizes have been...

Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: Friday March 16, 2018

Stretched out at Porlier. Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report There was a lot going on this past week with water conditions, fish depth, and we also fished all over the place, including Lower Howe Sound, Bell Buoy, Thrasher, and Porlier. First lets start with the water conditions. This past week we saw a distinct change in the water colour. Gone are the days of the blue and clear water where you can see your flasher down to about 45 feet when you are dropping it down on the rigger. The algae bloom has started, and a bit early too, and with it we now have more of a tea coloured water. The same can be said over at Thrasher and Porlier as well. This does...

Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: Friday March 9, 2018

Captain Tom’s guest Emma visiting from Sweden with a beauty winter chinook. Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report Looks like we left some of the cold weather behind us for now, with some bright and sunny days in the forecast for the next few days so don’t forget to bring your sunglasses if you are heading out on the water this weekend. In terms of where to go this weekend, we have had great fishing up Howe Sound this week, and the Harbour has also produced a couple of fish if you’re looking to stay closer to home.  If the marine forecast allows for a crossing, we have also had great chinook reports from the Gulf Islands. Glow flashers and glow spoons such as Skinny G,...

Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: Friday March 2, 2018

Captain Eddie's guests had some great winter chinook fishing in some true winter conditions! Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report Looks like the cold weather is gone for now. Do I dare say it is gone for the season? Time to start on the boat maintenance pretty quick. Don't wait until April or May or you will miss some of the best chinook fishing of the season. We were working on our boats yesterday and at one point had the jackets off and short sleeve shirts on! The fishing can be described in one word. Consistent. If you put your time in the rewards will come. The usual suspects have been producing well, such as glow flashers and glow spoons like the Skinny G, Kingfisher and G-Force....
