Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Fishing Report
The weather looks great this weekend for some winter chinook fishing. Particularly on Saturday with very little wind in the forecast and some sun as a bonus. On the fishing front we don’t have a lot of new information to report from last week. Fishing has been decent if you are willing to put in the time around South Bowen and up Howe Sound.
One interesting thing to note are the whales. For the past 2-3 weeks now there have been quite a few of them off South Bowen. There have been almost daily reports of them and they have been putting on quite a show. Although Humpback and Grey whales are fairly common sightings in the Strait of Georgia, we usually don’t see them hang around in these numbers for this long. There must be a good amount of bait out there to keep them in the area.
If you are going to observe the whales, make sure you do some from a healthy distance. DFO does have a whale protection unit and they are out there patrolling. So, make sure you keep your distance, you have your fishing license on you and those barbs are fully flattened.
