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.

Another warm and sunny day on the waters around vancouver. Very calm and hot today on the water. The West Van shoreline produced a few fish today. We fished for a few hours today kept 1 Pink and lost 3 Pinks and realeased 4 little Lingcod. Another boat near the Fishery Station hit a Coho, and a Pink. The Gulf Isalnds produced again with a boat getting a 15lb Halibut and 2 Springs around 20lbs each and lost 2 others at Thrasher Rock. It’s very surprising that a Halibut keeps getting hit every few days a great sign if they stick around. Howe Sound a few more Pinks showed up at Furry Creek with a few of the beach casters getting a few more today early in the morning. Crabbing remains very good for Dungeness Crab. Getting close to August a few more fish showing up every day looks great for August.
The past few days some fish have started to show up. In Howe Sound there has been a few Pink salmon hit and some Springs. It’s nice to see the Pinks salmon it’s a bit early for them but when the first few show up it’s not long before Furry Creek, and Porteau Cove get hit by the thousands and limits happen every day. English Bay and the West Van shoreline not much seems to be happening on the Ebb. The big tides this week blows those fish out into the Strait Off Georgia. The Flood tide had been not bad some days with a boat yesterday getting 2 15lbs Springs and losing another one while another boat got a couple Coho and a Spring with a few more hits. Not many boats have been fishing off the Fraser River this week but the few boats that have gone down to the lightship which is off the South arm of the river have caught some nice Springs. There’re a few Sockeye in the river so very soon we should be catching and keying on them (waiting for them to open them for us). The Gulf islands, Thrasher rock, and the Grande if you put in the time through a tide has not been bad with a couple Springs up to 30lbs have been caught in the last few days. We fished today and headed up Howe Sound to try and see if we could find Pinks. We checked out the usual spots that we cast for them and nothing was there we saw a couple flip but no big schools to key on. We only picked up one Pink today but a beautiful day on the water flat calm and hot. The test sets up north have been great not long till we have more fish than we know what to do with. Call now for charters August is booking up quick.
After that bad weather a few days ago that brought all that rain things have seemed to have settled down to sunny with a few clouds. The West van shoreline there’re are a few nice Coho getting caught with a Spring salmon mixed in there. The Capilano River is back down to a trickle after that rain which is great the fish will start to stack up on the West van shoreline again every flood tide a few more should arrive. T10 and South a few nice Springs got caught this morning with a few Jack Springs mixed in. Howe Sound looks good again with one boat this morning getting a 31lb, 22lb and a few Jack Springs all on the West side of Bowen island. Hole in the Wall right outside Horeshoe Bay a few nice Springs have been taken the last few days with a 25lb being the biggest i’ve herd of. Up Howe sound Defence islands has produced some nice Springs so it looks like the Squamish fish have started to come into Howe Sound making there way up. The Gulf islands with the water being abit rough the last few days not many people have been fishing them the water should calm down in the next few days and people will be heading back over there. The crabbing has been great as usual with lots of bid Dungeness crab.
Still good fishing. The Gulf islands is still very good off five fingers and of the Grande just outside off Silva Bay. All nice big Springs has not been like that for years over there and it doesn’t seem like it’s slowing down. This side of the Strait of Georgia, in Howe Sounds at Hole in the Wall there has been a few nice Springs taken and a few Jack Springs also. Up Howe sound Defence has been producing Springs another good bet would be Porteau cove it’s just been great fishing everywhere else nobody has gone up there lately. The West van shoreline is still going strong for lots of Coho and the odd Spring mixed in there.
Still great weather and the fishing has just got better. The Gulf islands are still good off of Thrasher and Five fingers. Howe Sound there have been a few Springs taken off Salmon Rock. The West van shoreline has been quite good for Coho and there’re a few Springs mixed in. T10 which is off the airport and the middle arm of the Fraser river has been producing Springs with some days being very good. Things are looking up, things should keep getting better especially the West Van shoreline if it does not rain. The Capilano River is very low right now and the fish really can’t get up the river and should continue to stack up
