SALTWATER FISHING REPORTS
I am pleased to report that the fishing for feeder chinook, aka winter chinook, has been solid for quite a few weeks now. We have had some trips each week and we are coming back with chinook in the 8 to 12 pound class on most trips.
This fishery is receiving more and more attention due to the chinook closures we are seeing in the summer months. If you are new to this fishery one of the keys to success is to keep your gear fairly close to the bottom. Also keep a close eye on the weather and pick your days. We will be fishing for these chinook for the next 5 months so you have some ability to pick the calmer and sunnier days.
Our guides have been doing well on brighter gear right now like the Salty Dawg, Lemon Lime and Chartreuse Glow Herring Aid flashers from Oki and Gibbs. Bright spoons have also been working well like the Gibbs G-Force 3.0 and 3.5 and Silver Horde Kingfisher 3.0 and 3.5 in colours that have some chartreuse and glow in them.
Here are some fish from this week’s trips.
See you in the shop or on the water.
