The last few days on the water since the Killer whales went through on Monday has been abit slower. Thursday and Friday this week were windy in the morning and was not helping fishing out. In the past few days in English Bay to the Bell Buoy there has been the odd Spring taken and there are a few schools of Pinks and Sockeye. The main run off Pinks for the Fraser are still coming and in the next week the Spring fishing off the Bell Buoy to T10 should heat up and if it’s anything like last year we’ll all have fun. The Capilano is still a couple weeks away for that Spring run and that’ll run till the start off October and longer if the rain stays away. The last few days for my boat had mixed results. Thusday afternoon we fished for just over an hour and we released 2 Sockeye lost 1 and had a couple grills. Friday late morning we fished and had a few grills, fished for 3hrs there was a nice 20lbs Spring caught but very slow everywhere and the water was windy and had a couple feet chop. This morning we released an undersize Spring, had a shot at a nice Spring, released 2 Sockeye lost a Sockeye, and kept a Pink. It was slow overall most boats had a shot at a pink or Sockeye but slow. The fishing should pick up very soon if it’s like previous years. Best time to do charters at this time of year is in the week if possible the weekends get very crouded when these fish get here. Crabbing remains very good lots of big Dungeness crab.

Another great hot day on the water! Up Howe Sound, the Pinks were thicker than they were the day before. In the morning, on charter, we limited out very easily and also released a bunch. It will only get better from here. Two years ago, when we last had Pink Salmon, they arrived August 4th. There are great signs that they are here in these numbers already. The West Van shoreline is still producing a few fish on the right tide. Down at the T10 marker to the south arm, off of the Fraser River, there are some big Springs that have been caught. The odd Sockeye has been caught and released as well. We are booking up quick for August, so this is a great time to book your vancouver salmon fishing trip! Crabbing for Dungeness still remains great!
Vancouver Salmon Fishing is continuing to get better after weeks of being slow. The West Van shoreline is producing Pinks, Coho, Springs and evan getting an odd Sockeye. The Pinks and Sockeye have started to show up in the last week. The start of over 20 million returning to the Vancouver area and the river systems. Howe Sound the start off the Squamish Pinks have started to show up not in huge numbers yet but by August Howe Sound will be stacked with them. The Gulf Islands are still producing some very nice Springs and surprisingly a few more Halibut were hit this week. Things look great for August and September. Crabbing remains great, lots of big dungeness crab nothing like a crab and salmon barbeque after a day on the water. August is filling up book now for a great day on the water Vancouver Salmon Fishing.
Another great day on the water around vancouver flat calm and sunny. A few miles south of T10 the fishing was abit slower today but some nice fish were still caught the boat i talked to got a nice Spring a few Jack Springs and lost a beauty beside the boat. In the afternoon we fished the West Van shoreline again near the Capilano River and kept 3 nice Coho, releases a wild Coho, released 2 undersize Springs, and lost a few Coho not as good as yesterday but still a good afternoon. The crabbing remains very good with lots of big dungeness crab we picked our 12 legal crab and threw a bunch back. Hopefully no big rain comes those Coho should just keep stcking up near the Capilano river. Untill next time good luck.
