Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: Friday Dec 16, 2016


Vancouver Saltwater Fishing Report

We managed to get out on the water this past week despite the wind, snow and cold temperatures. It was well worth it as Eddie’s guests put 3 nice chinook in the boat and got some prawns as well!


The winter chinook fishing is definitely off to a strong start. If you have been thinking about booking a trip, I would book now as the fish seem to be around in good numbers and our guides are dialed in. Don’t worry about the cold. It’s not that bad out there if you dress warmly and we have rain gear and heaters on board so you can stay warm and dry!


If you are planning on heading out on your own, bring out the glow flashers and spoons. The Salty Dawg, Green Onion Glow, and chartreuse glow flasher are all good choices. Good spoon choices are any spoon in a 2.5 to 3.5 size with some glow on it and preferably some shades of green or chartreuse. As usual, keep your gear close to the bottom. Most of the bait is right on the bottom, so that is where the fish are. If you aren’t bouncing bottom once in awhile, you aren’t fishing as effectively as you could be. We have all the hot flashers and spoons in stock, so come by the shop for some expert advice and we will get you dialed in. Read our latest review HERE
