Vancouver Saltwater Salmon Report, August 14

Well, it has been a pretty tough weekend for our saltwater salmon guides.  Some strong northwest winds and big tides have made the fishing difficult over the weekend.  However, last night Pacific Angler saltwater guide, Eddie, hooked into a monster chinook salmon last night.  Pacific Angler guests did a great job landing the big chinook.

This bodes well for the remainder of August.  On que the chinook salmon entering the Fraser River have showed up and we are now hearing some good reports.  This is an excellent fishery and one of our favourite as you have a legitimate shot at landing the fish of the season.

Our guides focus off the Bell Buoy marker for this fishery and will fish in approximately 80 feet of water and set their gear anywhere from 40 to 70 feet.  Anchovies on a glow teaser head with your favourite flashers have been the most productive.

This past weekend the dreaded northwestern winds were making things a bit uncomfortable on the water and made for tough fishing conditions.  The Vancouver forecast is looking good all the way into the weekend with sunny conditions and daily temperature highs ranging from 22 to 26 degrees Celsius.  The Georgia Straight Marine Forecast is calling for a shift in the winds.  It looks like the winds today are southeast (5 to 15 knots) but then shift back to northwesterns (5 to 15 knots) for the rest of the week.
