In the last week we have seen the last of the Pinks go up the South arm off the Fraser River. The fishing in English Bay the last week has picked up at the Bell Buoy and the West Van shoreline to the Capilano River. We’re generally fishing the flood tide near the Capilano and on the ebb tide out toward the Bell Buoy. We’ve done well fishing the flood tide near the capilano getting quite a few Jack Springs, and our biggest Spring being 31lbs. There have also been the odd Coho taken and early in the week a couple Pinks. The Bell Buoy has been hit or miss with some boats doing well with the biggest Spring that has been confirmed has been 36lbs. In the next few weeks this is the time of year you have your real chance at a tyee. Until next time good luck hope to see you out there. The best time to do a charter at this time of year is in the week if possible it really helps staying away from the crowds on the weekend. Crabbing remains great with lots of 7 inch dungeness

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.
