Fishing has been good this last week with a nice mix of sockeye and chinook. There are some huge sockeye down off the South Arm of the Fraser and we have been making the run down there in the morning to pick up some of these nice fish.
Sockeye don’t get much bigger than this one!
We are also hooking some big chinook and some coho off the South Arm as the fall white chinook, and fall coho are entering the Fraser on their way up to rivers like the Chilliwack and the Harrison. If you are looking for a full day charter, this is a great time of year to go to the South Arm of the Fraser as you can hook sockeye, chinook, and coho all in the same day!
Lots of chinook and some sockeye make for an action packed day on the water!
Now is the time of year when we start to see chinook stacking up off the mouth of the Capilano River. If you are looking to do a 5 hour charter, this is the place to be. Only minutes from our dock, this unique fishery gives you a chance at a huge chinook salmon with the Stanley Park as your back drop.
This big chinook weighed in at 28.6 lbs!
David landed this nice chinook at the Cap Mouth after a morning of action packed sockeye fishing!
We should have good sockeye fishing for another week and the chinook and coho fishing will go right into October.
If you are heading out on your own boat, drop by the shop for some friendly advice and all the right gear. We have lots of flashers and teaser heads in stock for your anchovy and herring setups which have been working well for the chinook off the Fraser and the Capilano Mouth. We also have lots of bait and salt in stock as well.
See you on the water,
