The start of the Vancouver salmon fishing charter season has started. The Watermark is starting to do charters. There have been some good reports in the last few weeks and with Spring at the South end of Bowen, fishing will start with our first run of Springs in the next week or so.
In the past few weeks there have been some nice spring caught on the West side of Bowen island. Grace, 3rd marker, and Tunstal have produced a mix bag of just undersized, and some nice legal fish. The fish have been caught mainly on spoons. Silva Hordes (Irish cream, home land security). Gibbs Gypsy (flamming hans). G force ( bon chovie). Also anchovies have worked well.
There have been a few fish caught off the South end of Bowen island it’s still a bit early but that’s a great sign with so few people fishing the area to see a few legal fish caught. Anchovie seems to be what’s worked so far but a mixer of spoons mixed in is a great bet. We will be out this week if the weather is good, so check my twitter out on my web page and see how we are doing.
The crabbing has been very good and the prawning is good also and this usually stays like this most of the year. Until next time good luck it’s a great time to book a charter for fishing the South end of Bowen island. It’s the first good run of Spring salmon in Vancouver to start the year. Until next time good luck.
