As I forecast in the last report, the first good rains of the season pushed most of the stale fish up the river. Shortly after the rains last week we had more fish arrive and there are some chrome beauties out there! As usual, some days the fish are very active and some days not so much, but fish are still being caught, and there are definitely more fish to show up.
Great job Peter!
The standard practice at the mouth of the Capilano River is to run anchovies or herring off the bottom. Glow teaser heads on cloudy days have made a difference, where as UV teaser heads have been the go to on sunny days. Some anglers have had good success without flashers as well. With very little rain in the forecast for the coming week, fish should be sticking around in the salt a little longer.
I’ve heard of a couple of reports from down South. There are chinook and coho being caught at the Sand Heads, which is typical for this time of year. Winds can be something to consider when heading to the South Arm. Most of the local spots will produce fish this time of year. Point Atkinson, West Vancouver, North Arm, T-10 and the South Arm are all worth a look. The weather has been quite pleasant at times so be sure to get out and hook some of the biggest and last fish of the season until the winter chinooks arrive.
