Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: Friday Feb 23, 2018

These Skinny G spoons are a must have for local winter chinook fishing. Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report It's a winter wonderland out there today so it might be a good weekend to tie leaders and get ready for when the weather finally warms up.  On the other, if you are a diehard the forecast for the winds doesn't look too bad for this weekend and the colder weather definitely keeps the crowds down. The fishing continues to be steady, with consistent action in Howe Sound, Vancouver Harbour and Gulf Islands.  As usual, the fish are moving around a lot, with one day only some small fish and the next day mostly keepers.  It is a highly variable fishery so the best thing to do...

Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: Friday Feb 16, 2018

Eric holding up a nice fat red spring from a trip on Monday! Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report We were on the water a lot this past week and spent some time over in the Gulf Islands, in Vancouver Harbour, and in Howe Sound. We picked up some nice chinook in all locations and lots of smaller fish as well. As usual, keeping your gear close to the bottom is the way to go this time of year, although I am starting to see some suspended bait balls and chinook signals, so I don’t think it will be too long before we start picking up a few fish mid water column in some spots. So far the fish have been on herring, so we will...

Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: Friday Feb 9, 2018

Natalie with a decent winter chinook taken just off the bottom with a 3.0 Herring Aide spoon Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report Fishing was pretty solid this past week with good reports from a variety of locations. We didn't make it over to the Gulf Islands, but some of our friends did and had some good fishing, which is pretty standard for this time of year. Our boats stayed a little closer to home and we had some good fishing in Howe Sound as well as decent prawning and crabbing. We are pretty much in the middle of winter chinook season and that means you can expect good amounts of bait and fish on most days. If the wind and weather are decent, its time...

Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: Friday Feb 2, 2018

Must have winter chinook flashers and some of my favorite spoons these past few months. Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report Well finally it looks like there is a little break in the wind coming up with winds light in the forecast for Saturday and Sunday, although that could change by Friday night. Lets hope not, I have had enough of the big wind forecasts. Too bad the rain won’t leave us alone as well, although I will take the 10-15 mm in the forecast over the 50 + mm from last weekend. The fishing remained consistent this past week on our guided trips and with the winds knocking off this weekend I expect it to be on the busy side of things. Eddie is booked...

Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: Friday Jan 26, 2018

A couple of nice ones from Eddie’s trip this week! Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report Well it has been a bit of a nasty week filled with big winds and heavy rains, but that didn't stop Eddie and some guest from heading out this week and the fish were in a rewarding kind of mood!   They had a great day with a limit of 4 chinook and released a few nice ones as well.  There were some smaller fish in the mix too, resulting in a very active and productive day.  Best part was there was nobody else there… When it comes to winter chinook fishing, you have to go when you can go, despite the winds and the rain.  Our boats are equipped with...

Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: Friday Jan 19, 2018

Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report This past week was a mixed bag of weather with wind, fog, rain, even a little bit of sun from time to time.  If you are heading out this weekend be aware of the Gale Force Warning for the Strait of Georgia South of Nanaimo with SE winds up to 40 knots and of course some rain.  The forecast for Howe Sound doesn't look too bad though, so if you are heading out that will be the place to be. We are in our usual Jan/Feb pattern of consistent winter fishing where if you put in the time you are usually rewarded with a few nice chinook.  As always, keeping your gear close to the bottom is the way to...

Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: Friday Jan 12, 2018

Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report Fishing continues to be solid and if you can find a day where the winds and rain aren’t too bad, even better! Looking ahead to this weekend it looks like some rain on Saturday but on Sunday the sun is going to make an appearance. As for the winds, the SE in the Strait of Georgia looks like it will be moderate but the outflow out of Howe Sound is being persistent, but not at the levels we saw earlier this month. There are fish well spread out through Howe Sound and good numbers in the Gulf Island as well, so there really is no one hot spot. All spots are producing fish and the name of the game is...

Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: Friday Jan 5, 2018

Aimee and Darren holding up a couple of Gulf Island chinook from our efforts on Saturday. Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report Happy New Year to all you winter chinook fisherman out there and a Happy New Year it was indeed! Fishing over the New Years weekend was productive in the Howe Sound area as well as the Gulf Islands. In our local waters Eddie was out on a number of trips in Howe Sound this past week and had consistent fishing with some nice keepers and lots of action from some of the smaller guys as well. Crabbing and prawning has also been decent and made for some great dinners of fresh winter chinook, Dungeness crab, and prawns! Note that as of Jan 1 there...

Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: Friday Dec 29, 2017

Kai with a nice winter chinook caught on a very wintery trip this week! Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report I am happy to report that fishing has been good this past week. We have been out on a number of charters and have had some great success with lots of action from smaller fish to keep us on our toes and some nice keeper fish as well. Crabbing has also been good, so we have been dropping traps on most trips. For the most part we have been fishing in Howe Sound but there has been some decent action in Vancouver Harbour too. As usual for December and January, the fish are all over the place, you just need to be in the right place...
