Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report
We are about halfway through the winter season and I would say it has been a good one so far. Fishing has been very consistent since November, with the vast majority of days having fish in the box with limits not being that uncommon. I don’t see any reason this will change in the coming weeks, so if you haven’t been out, there is still time.
February is a great month for winter chinook fishing. March can be good as well, but it does get a bit trickier with algae blooms and some suspended fish and bait. For now, the water is very clear, the bait is on the bottom and so are the fish, so that’s where your gear should be. That means use some flashers that have glow tape and use glow spoons or hootchies. We have covered many productive setups in the past, so take a look through previous reports and our guiding Instagram page @pacificanglersportfishing for some pictures of productive gear.
In terms of location, all the spots are producing well, from Vancouver Harbour up into Howe Sound and over in the Gulf Islands. I wouldn’t say any one spot or area has been a standout, just consistent all around. It’s good to see a strong fish presence in all spots and lots of bait.
With days being a bit longer and warmer, now is a great time to book a trip. Give us a call at 778-788-8582 for details on our winter chinook special.
