Fishing was alot better today with Sockeye, Pink, Coho, and some Springs showing up on the West Van shoreline. On the flood this morning quite a few fish were taken from the Pink apartment down to the marker off the Capilano River. There also later in the day a few Pinkis were taken off the Fishery Station. In the last couple days these fish have moved in this is what we’ve been waiting for the last couple weeks it should get better every day. The Gulf islands The Grande and Thrasher rock some good fishing for Springs continues when the water lets us get over to that side. Howe Sound a few Pinks have shown up any day now we should get a big push off them up the Sound to the Defense Islands, and Furry Creek area. Things are looking very positive for the next month for Coho, Pink and Sockeye with a few Springs mixed in. Crabbing remains very good with lots off big dungeness crab. Until next time good luck

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.
Fishing has been picking up the last few days. With the water being calm the last few days people have gotten over to the Gulf Islands. Thrasher Rock and the Grande have produced. Some boats have done very well limiting out on Spring salmon up to 30lbs most fish seem to be in the high teens. This fishery is great you drag the bottom so you’re usually busy with some kind off bottom fish if you don’t have a Spring on. On this side off the Straight of Georgia, Howe Sound some nice Springs have been taken off Hole in the Wall, Grace, and Salmon Rock. In English Bay the Bell Buoy has quite a few undersize Springs with the odd big one. The West van shoreline seems to still be active when you get on top off a school of Coho with a Spring mixed in. I got my first Sockeye of the year yesterday off the sailing club off 14th street that was a surprise hitting a spoon we also lost a Coho, had a couple other hits, a few small salmon, and a few cod when we were dragging the bottom off the pink apartment. There seems to be quite alot of small salmon (grilse) on there way out to see a good sign for years to come.
