Big Spring Salmon

July 25th Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report

By | Fishing Report | 2 Comments

This week on the Vancouver fishing charter scene we’ve seen a mix of Coho, Spring and Pinks and some great results across the board!


The Pink salmon have shown up in pretty big numbers with more showing up every day. The shore casters up Howe Sound at Furry Creek have started to do well.  The guys that have gone up Howe Sound have done very well wherever they find the schools from Potlatch to Furry Creek. We will start doing this in the next week if not sooner.  It’s a great fishery for young kids and people that like light tackle salmon fishing coupled with the scenery of Howe Sound you can’t beat it. The tackle we use for thse pinks is spinning Rods with Gibbs minnow 3/4 ounze ‎pink jigs they drive the pink salmon nuts.


First Salmon

All smiles after her first salmon ever, for a wet and rough day she was a champ. Reeled in a few of them herself.

Morning Charter Results

Great catch from morning charter. Kept 3 nice springs, lost 2, kept 5 pinks and lost a bunch.

Couple more springs from this morning, Rhys Davis Heads and watermark flashers rocking it at 40-60ft

Nice Big Spring Salmon

Real Nice Spring to start a morning charter, caught on gibbs watermark flasher and Rhys Davis head with an anchovie.


The West Vancouver shoreline has still been producing quite a good number of salmon; a mix of Coho, Pinks and a few Springs. We have been fishing more off of Point Atkinson (Lighthouse Park) over to the QA Marker (Point Grey), to Cowans Point (Bowen Island). As you see in the pictures we have had great days on the water in the last few days. Other areas are good bets are Hole in the Wall just outside Horseshoe Bay, t10 off the middle arm of the Fraser River, and if you’d like a day trip the Gulf Islands off Gabriolla Island which have all had fish caught there in the last week. Back on the West Vancouver shoreline, we’ve landed a couple Springs weighing in the mid-twenties – big fish for this time of year! On one charter we kept 3 springs and lost 2 more. This fishery is fun for everyone.  We stand a great chance at getting into a big Spring while catching Pinks or Coho salmon. The gear that has worked has been the Watermark flasher with Rhys Davis heads the two glow green one or the UV one with anchovies and a little Yamachita pink UV squirt hootchie has been great for Pinks.

Call for info on the different fishing charters that we can do or call if you’d like to pick my brain if you are heading out yourself to try your luck and I can help you out. Until next time good luck!

Fishing report Aug. 7th

Another couple days on the water with mixed results. Thursday we headed up Howe Sound in the morning and fished for Pinks. We ended up with 3 Pinks had a few more hits and lost 4 or 5. When we arrived the Pinks were schooling around we got a couple right away and then the seal moved in took one off our line and scattered the schools and they never came back. Not a bad morning but could off been alot better if the seals had not bothered us. The morning in English bay on the West Van shoreline was very slow. A few boats moved over to the Bell Buoy later in the morning and caught some Sockeye that had to be released, a few Pinks and a couple boats got a Spring. The afternoon we headed down to the West Van shoreline to fish the flood tide that had produced the last few days. The fishing was very slow I saw one boat get a small Coho or Pink. Later in the evening a few Springs got hit at the Bell Buoy a friend of mine got a 15 and 20lb right near the high slack. This morning was a different story quite a few boats at the Bell Buoy did well with a few boats getting 4 or 5 Springs all high teens to mid twenty’s. We went up Howe Sound again this morning and it was the complete difference from the morning before. We limited out on Pinks in a very short time and realeased 28 over the next couple hours and lost a bunch more. A great day on the water all around Vancouver. Crabbing remains great with alot of 7 inch Dungeness crab.
