Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: May 20, 2016


Thrasher Rock Salmon fishing

Well the big news this week is Thrasher Rock!

If you have been waiting to book a Thrasher Rock trip do not hold off any longer! The fish are in and we expect things to be awesome for the next 4-6 weeks. Call now to book because dates fill up very fast whenever we start getting good reports!

Here is the Report! We had to do some searching to find fish but when the bite came on we put up some epic numbers. Dimitri, Edie, Mike and Jason had some awesome days this week. Fish were found at a number of different depths. Look to the clarity of the water to help make the call. If it is a little dirty fish 90-120. If it is clear drop your gear into the 150- 220 range.

When fishing at the extreme depths, 18lb cannon balls help and you might consider running only one rod on each side of the boat. It is very common to see guys asking each other what depths they are at but not taking into consideration how many rods they are fishing or what weight cannon balls they are running. An angler with 18lb cannon balls and only one rod will be fishing way deeper than an angler with 2 rods and 15 lb cannon balls even if the riggers numbers are the same. Take this into consideration when you hear on water reports.

We have been fishing double glow flashers with Pesca spoons and Oki Titan spoons down deep as they have the best glow paint. Homeland security and irish cream spoons have been fishing well in the shallower depths with “Club Dub” flashers and green onion flashers. We have also had some good bites on hoochies in green and blue colors.

At times we have had to do some searching up and down the west side of the straight and you will want to look at spots from Galiano all the way past Thrasher to North of Nanaimo. Listen to your radio, keep an eyes on the horizon for guys working landing nets and once you start getting bites keep looping in on the spot. It is surprising how tightly concentrated fish can be.

We have boats out all weekend and we should have more info early next week so as always don’t hesitate to call in and ask for and update or even better call in your report if something interesting happens out there. 604-872-2204. If you want to book a trip call NOW to get a spot! 778- 788-8582
