The seas were a roll’n this past weekend. However, Eddie, the Salty Dawg and his guests braved the winds this past Saturday and put in a good effort getting a few hits, and pulling up a mess of crabs and prawns.
When the winds have allowed the “Hump” has been the hot spot for winter chinook salmon. On Sunday afternoon during the high slack tide we heard of a few fish being hit. This fishery will continue for the next couple of weeks and then transition to Thrasher Rock, across Georgia Strait.
The Vancouver weather forecast is calling for sunny conditions from today until Thursday and then rainy conditions from Friday to Saturday and then back to sun on Sunday. The daily high temperatures will range from 13 to 16 degrees Celsius, making for some very comfortable fishing.
The marine forecast for the Strait of Georgia is calling for northwestern winds ranging from 5 to 15 knots today and Tuesday. It is looking like the winds are picking up on Wednesday, potentially getting up to 20 knots.
The tides are picking up as we get closer to a full moon on April 25th. Vancouver salmon fishing has been good this past week in the afternoon during the high slack tide as well as during the bottom of the ebb in the morning.
