Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: Friday March 3, 2017



Eddie was out on a number of trips this past week and for the most part the fishing was solid.  There were a few nice fish that managed to get away, a few that hit the deck, and a good number of undersize.  We have been focusing our efforts in Vancouver Harbour and not too far up Howe Sound and both areas have been productive.  Crabbing and prawning has also been very good.  There has been solid reports from further up Howe Sound as well as over on the other side at Gabriola and Galiano, but winds have kept us closer to home most days and the fishing in our local waters seems to be as good, sometimes better.

The usual flashers with some glow tape and some spoons or hootchies with glow on them have all been productive.  There is a picture in last weeks report of some productive gear, so you can check that out for specifics, but in general, most flashers with some blue or green and glow tape will work and the same goes for the hootchies and spoons.

We are fishing deep, usually just off bottom in 130-230 feet of water and green, blue, and glow are productive colours at those depths.


See you in the shop or on the water.
