Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report: November 16, 2018


Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report

We had some guided trips this past week and I did some personal fishing as well and we can confirm there are fish spread throughout Howe Sound as well as some fish over at Galliano and Gabriola. This past week the fishing was actually pretty tough, it was definitely better a little earlier in the month, but that is classic winter chinook fishing. Here one day and gone the next. I don’t wait for reports, I just look at the weather and go, and I make the report and I recommend you do the same. You can have one of your best days of the season one day and get skunked the next, that’s how fast these fish move around. It’s also what makes it so intriguing, you just never know what you are going to get and every day is a fresh challenge! If you fish hard you are going to get your chances and put some fish in the box and that is exactly what happened on our trips this past week.


A nice hatchery chinook from a trip with Captain Lars this past week.

The weather looks pretty good this weekend, perhaps a bit of outflow in Howe Sound, but nothing major. Most importantly it is going to be sunny! So this would be a good weekend to book a trip or get out on your own boat. Hot flashers this past week were green (STS) and chartreuse (BC) glow with Irish Cream and Homeland spoons in 3.0 and 3.5. Skinny G were also working well in the same colour patterns.

See you in the shop or on the water,
