It has been another nice couple of days fishing in Vancouver. It looks as though the last of the Pinks have disappeared from up Howe Sound and headed toward the Squamish River. We have had a great couple of weeks fishing for Pinks while using our light tackle. The Spring salmon has started to show up off of the Fraser river and also in English Bay. We have seen some Pinks, Sockeye, and Springs produced at the Bell Buoy in English Bay as well. Furthermore, there have been a couple of Springs caught off of the West Van shoreline on the flood tide. Moreover, there have been sightings of some Springs and Pinks off of the Fraser River from t10 to the South arm. We had a great day on the water Monday morning, where we ended up with a 30lb and 16lb Spring. That same day, we lost a Spring in the mid 20’s and released one that was just short of being considered legal size. It was near the end of august of last year when the late run of Spring salmon arrived. Fishing looks good so far, and should only get better over the course of the next week or so. We can only hope that the killer whales stay away. As always, crabbing remains a success!

A fabulous day on the water! The fishing was great again today around vancouver. A few nice Spring were caught near the high tide in English Bay and on the West van shoreline near the Capilano River. The Bell Buoy was again the main place most people fished this morning, with most boats getting a chance at a couple Springs. The biggest Spring landed today was 31lbs. Also at the Bell buoy today, a few pinks and sockeye were caught. We went up Howe Sound once again and were successful. We limited out on Pinks quite quickly, and realeased 22 more throughout the morning. Crabbing remains fabulous and prawning is just around the corner!
It has been another great day on the water in Vancouver. The morning was a bit slow on the West Van shoreline. There were a few Springs, Coho, and Pink Salmon which were caught, however, when the ebb tide really started to move, the fish got sucked out of there. The killer whales spent alot of the day off of the Fraser River between the North arm and the South arm. Some boats did rather well off of the afternoon flood tide. Our boat, in particular, caught a Pink and lost one. We also got a 7lb wild coho and released it, and lost another one. Furthermore, we lost a 10 to 12lb Spring and kept another that was 22lbs. We had a couple of other hits as well. Clearly, not a bad afternoon on the water. I saw a few more boats catch some nice Spring, Pinks, and Coho. The biggest of the day was a 31lb Spring. Crabbing still remains excellent to date! The fishing should continue to be a success from here on in while we continue to wait for the main run of pinks.
