Saltwater Fishing Report: October 17th, 2014

Local Saltwater

It seems that fall is here with the steady rains starting up. We had a few nice rain free days last week despite the gloomy forecast. The fishing has been a little slower over the last 2 weeks, but you can still hope to hook up to at least a couple of nice chinook.

On my last trip out, we hooked up on our very first pass. It was a nice fish that gave some good head shakes before it spat the hook. Then it wasn’t until the very last pass that my guest landed her first hard fighting chrome chinook ever. What are the odds of a first pass hit and a hail Mary hit. I was already warming up the engines to head back! Not all the boats out there are hitting fish, but the Capilano river mouth is still producing a few chinook. Anchovies and Herring work but spoons will work if you run out. Another boat reported a couple of fish on with a 4″ Cop Car.

I have started to hear the odd reports of coho, chinook and chum being taken at the South Arm of the Fraser river. We should hear more reports as boats start to head south. I’ve had pretty decent late season action there in the past. White hoochies, spoons and bait fished in the 40′-60′ range is the way to target coho. Overall it’s been a pretty good season and I expect a few more fish yet!

Tight lines,
