Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report
Looks like it is nice and sunny today, but unfortunately the NW winds are cranking in the Salish Sea and the outflow is doing the same in Howe Sound with gusts to 35 at Pam Rocks. The weekend is going to see the same sort of conditions, sunny and windy, with Monday being the transition day where it switches from NW to SE and winds light in between. If you can somehow work this weekend and take Monday off, that would be the perfect scenario!
The fishing for this time of year has been pretty solid. There were some decent catches of winter chinook in Vancouver Harbour and in the traditional Howe Sound spots this past week. So, I guess it is officially time to start “winter fishing”.

It certainly is starting to feel more like winter chinook season with colder air temperatures and nasty outflow winds out of Howe Sound. Time to start looking at those long-range forecasts and trying to pick those days when the calm seas and sun line up! They can be few and far between, so being flexible on when you can head out on the water is always a key to success this time of year.
A reminder, don’t forget to check out the SFI Webinar Conference Series which started this Friday with 3 more sessions on the coming Fridays. There are some great topics and speakers and you can voice your concerns and ask questions.
See you in the shop or on the water,
