Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: Friday Nov 11, 2016


Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report

Well the rivers have been flooded so we haven’t been out chasing the salmon up on the Squamish or Vedder, but we have been out chasing some winter chinook.  The fishing is typical for this time of year, hit and miss, but we are encouraged by the number of undersize fish we are encountering.  This bodes well for early 2017.  The fish are also feeding on anchovies.  It seems the anchovies that showed up in the spring are still here and that means lots of food and fast growing chinook.  Some productive spoons have been the Skinny G, the Coho Killer, and Pesca 2.5.  All these spoons are fairly small and represent anchovies well.  You could go up to a Pesca 3.5 or a Kingfisher 3.5 and those would work well also.  We just got our hands on some prototype Pesca spoons, including a new style that has a slimmer profile.  We will be trying those out in the coming weeks.  As usual for winter chinook, break out the glow flashers and glow spoons, keep it close to the bottom, and cover lots of water.
