Vancouver Salmon Fishing Update, Friday September 21st

The chinook fishing has been red hot for the past couple of days.  Captain Eddie had one of his best trips this morning hooking into several big and chrome salmon.

Days like today not only put a smile on our guides but more importantly our guests.  Our guides expect this fishery to continue all the way through September, October and then taper off by the end of October or start of November.  The “Salty Dawg” is booking up fast so if you would like to get out please do not hesitate to contact Dave at the shop (604-872-2204).  He will put you on the best possible tide.

In terms of fishing, the hot spots have been the mouth of the Capilano River as well as along the shoreline of West Vancouver.  Productive rigs for the mouth are anchovies or herring, teaser heads, a 6 ft. leader and flasher.  If you need a hand getting set-up don’t hesitate to stop by the shop.  And you will also need salt to brine your bait, very important!  You can also pick that up at our shop in Vancouver.  For the West Vancouver shoreline anglers have been fishing shallow, 15 ft. of water, using spoons and a flasher.  We’ve heard of some amazing coho and chinook fishing over there.  And of course focus your efforts around the slack tide.

The Vancouver forecast seems to be shifting a little bit this week.  You can expect a mixture of cloud cover, rain and sunny conditions through the weekend and into next week.  Daily high temperatures will still be fairly warm, ranging from 16 to 20 degrees Celsius.  The Georgia Straight Marine forecast is still look favourable for the local angler.  You can expect flat calm to slightly choppy water conditions.

“Today Tonight and Saturday – Wind southeast 15 to 20 knots diminishing to southeast 10 to 15 this morning and to light Saturday morning. Sunday – Wind southeast 10 to 15 knots becoming northwest 5 to 15 in the afternoon. Monday- Wind southeast 10 to 15 knots becoming northwest 5 to 15. Tuesday – Wind northwest 5 to 15 knots.”
If you can’t get out on the water this weekend but want to check out some amazing boats then make sure to visit the Mosquito Creek Marina Boat Show.  This is a huge event with tons of boats and seminars over the weekend.  Pacific Angler’s own, Dimitri, will be doing a saltwater salmon primer on Saturday!
