Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: August 6, 2021

Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report

We have a brief saltwater update this week from our guide team who have been out on the water daily. We have had great trips off Bowen for pinks.  When you can find schools of them on the sounder, flashers and pink hoochies have been quite productive.  The guys have also been picking up coho consistently off of South Bowen with some chinook mixed in.  Please note the chinook are all catch and release in this area.  Another item that is worth paying attention to is that there have been one or two sockeyes hooked in this area over the last week so take care to identify your fish properly and be sure to carefully release all sockeye.   

The North Shore in tight has produced a couple chinook and this is an area where you can retain one fish 62-80 cm.  Make sure you are familiar with the regulations and related boundaries.  If you’re doing some local fishing, the coho fishing with white Hoochies and Wee G’s have been good in the same area so it’s definitely worth a trip out.

Last, but not least, across the straight has been excellent.  Boats fishing Entrance and Thrasher have been doing well.  If you are going out and, you have the time and good weather, this is where we have seen the best fishing.  Fishing down deep with glow gear has been the ticket.  


Nothing better than a productive day on the water with friends

Good luck and we’ll see you out on the water!
