Fishing Report Aug. 24th, and 25th

By August 25, 2009 Uncategorized No Comments

It has been another nice couple of days fishing in Vancouver. It looks as though the last of the Pinks have disappeared from up Howe Sound and headed toward the Squamish River. We have had a great couple of weeks fishing for Pinks while using our light tackle. The Spring salmon has started to show up off of the Fraser river and also in English Bay. We have seen some Pinks, Sockeye, and Springs produced at the Bell Buoy in English Bay as well. Furthermore, there have been a couple of Springs caught off of the West Van shoreline on the flood tide. Moreover, there have been sightings of some Springs and Pinks off of the Fraser River from t10 to the South arm. We had a great day on the water Monday morning, where we ended up with a 30lb and 16lb Spring. That same day, we lost a Spring in the mid 20’s and released one that was just short of being considered legal size. It was near the end of august of last year when the late run of Spring salmon arrived. Fishing looks good so far, and should only get better over the course of the next week or so. We can only hope that the killer whales stay away. As always, crabbing remains a success!
