If you are thinking of trying to get them yourself the gear we use is Gibbsdelta flashers the Watermark white, blue or chartreuse, or the trusty reliable chartreuse glow and can’t wait to try the new herring aide flasher they should be great also. This fishery i mainly am a bait guy so using rhys davis heads with a 5 to 8ft leaders but some hootchies and spoons should work great also.
Well hard to say anything else except August and so far in September the fishing can’t get much better. The Sockeye run off the Fraser was incredible as was the Coho fishing in English bay with a few Spring salmon mixed in.
As i write this both fisheries are still good but will start to tail off soon and we will be switching over for our last real good fishery of returning fish on the West vancouver shoreline or on full day trips the South arm of the Fraser river can be an option.
We have a few dates remaining in September and the start of October. For the West Vancouver fishery we only fish the flood tides as the fish get pushed toward the Capilano river so a lot of days it does not mean early mornings it is when the tide is right. This last fishery is keying on Spring, Coho and in later September the Chum salmon. To book a charter or ask questions feel free to give us a call and i can answer any questions you have and get you out on the right tide. Enjoy the pictures of some of our happy charter customers over the last month with there catch.
