Captian Eddie and the Salty Dawg were out this weekend searching for chinook salmon off Bowen Island at the Hump. While there was a lot of pressure from the fishing derby this weekend there were not a lot of fish landed. However, Eddie did manage to get his clients into a couple nice chinooks, landing the one below.
You can expect the fishing to be good to excellent from May to the end of June for chinook salmon. At the moment “The Hump” has been productive however things will shift over to “Thrasher Rock” in a couple of weeks. We’ve already started to hear the first good reports over there which is great to hear. This is one of our most enjoyable fisheries as the fish come big and are the hardest fighters of the year.
