Another day on the water around vancouver. The West Van shoreline was nearlly unfishable and by late morning was not fishable. A few Coho were caught in the morning but it was so rough it was very tough to fish. We left the dock late morning and by this time the West Van shoreline was not fishable. We went to Hole in the Wall and the Sunset Beach area. We had a decent day in the end we ended up with a 20lb Spring and 2 Jacks which are just undersize mature Spring salmon both weighed about 7lbs. We had a bunch of dungeness crab so with the wind a not so bad day in the end.

Hopefully this is the start of some good news for Vancouver salmon fishing. Today some Coho and Springs have started to show up in English bay, Howe sound, and the Gulf islands. The West Van shoreline on the last couple hours of the flood this morning produces some Coho, wild and a few hatchery clipped ones with a couple Springs getting hit but were lost. Howe sound at Salmon rock at the high tide this morning there were a couple nice Spring salmon caught right of the Rock and a real nice Spring close to 35lbs was caught of Gower point. The Gulf islands also heated up today abit with a couple Springs getting caught of Thrasher, and off Five Fingers off Naniamo a boat boated 5 Springs looks good for the weekend. The West van shoreline should just get better with next week having great floods all morning so as long as it does not rain and the Capilano river does not rise we should start to see Coho and Springs starting to stack up on the West Van shoreline. Email or call for any information you would like to ask about talk to you soon Mark
A few Springs have been getting caught in the Gulf islands with them moved inshore to Thrasher Rock and the Grande with a 30lb Halibut getting caught at Thrasher rock trolling the bottom. On this side of the Straight of Georgia, Howe sound there’s still a few Springs getting caught at Hole in the Wall and Grace islands. The West Van shoreline in English Bay has started to produce a few Spring salmon and some Coho also. The tides get better for fishing the West van shoreline next week with a good flood in the morning which is the tide we want to fish as the fish get pushed to the Capilano river you don’t want to fish this area when the tide is ebbing. Crabbing is still been very good with lots of big dungeness crab around 7 inches across the back. It usually is slow the first 2 or 3 weeks of June then the West van area usually heats up as long as it does not rain much and Salmon rock and Howe sound pick up for Springs heading to the Squamish river.
