Vancouver Saltwater Report
As is typical for this time of the year the weather can be very unsettled. We had a couple of trips where we got lucky with the weather and fished the harbour. It was a little slow but still producing fish. The 3.5″ Homeland Security with the Purple Double Glow flasher have been very consistent. It’s a combo I’ve used in past years and had very good success at the “Hump” off the South end of Bowen Island. The Purple Onion with the Pesca 4″ Skid Mark spoon hooked up a couple of nice fish as well. I have received some decent reports from Howe Sound and saw a photo of a very respectable fish taken at Hole in the Wall last weekend. Reports from South Bowen Island are starting to trickle in, there are still winter chinook but bigger migrating fish are already arriving and it won’t be too long before the Hump is the place to be. It’s good to be off the bottom for the winter chinook but it’s also time to try shallower depths for the latest arrivals!
