September 12th, 2009

Well I was out on the water today on a trip with Peter from Vancouver and Ken from Toronto. What a day to be out on the water. Flat calm and hot! We fished the flood tide at the mouth of the Capilano all the way up to high slack in the afternoon. We weren’t alone with around 40 other boats in the area searching for the large Capilano springs that start to stack up at the mouth of the river this time of year. We released two small springs around 7 lbs each, an awesome 11 lb wild coho, and we kept a pink. We missed a few other bites but the fish seemed to be taking a bit of a nap on the normally productive high slack tides. There were a few fish taken today, most notably a 4o plus pounder and a few in the mid twenties. The top baits have been a flasher and anchovy near the bottom or a herring near the bottom. Reports from the Bell Buoy and Sandheads were equally slow, a few pinks and the odd chinook. Fishing should pick up as more springs stack up with the lack of rain we are having.
