A pair of nice winter chinook from our last trip.
Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report
It finally looks like we are gong to get a break from the rain, just a bit more to go on Saturday. The same can be said for the winds as well. No more gale force wind warnings. So that means its time to get out there and chase some winter chinook.
We were out last weekend, despite the wind and rain, and it was well worth the effort. We had a good action and came back with a few nice fish. Productive spoons were Irish Cream and Herring Aide in the 3.0 size with a 6 foot leader to a green or chartreuse glow flasher.
As usual for this time of year, productive spots vary as these fish move around so much. For the most part, find the bait and you have find some feeding chinook. There has been good action around the freighters and Bell Buoy, West Van down to Cap Mouth, and the Howe Sound area. I am sure there are some fish from Nanaimo down to Porlier and Coal Ports as well, but the winds haven’t given us much chance to explore these spots this year. The forecast looks good for Monday and Tuesday, so we might head across to check it out. Hard to pass up those winds light days!
