Wow some nice weather finally hopefully this is the start of Spring in Vancouver. The vancouver fishing has still been abit slow but the weather has not helped much at all. Hopefully now the weather will let the Vancouver salmon fishing season really begin. In the last week not many people have been out fishing but Defence and Poteau Cove has produced a few fish for the few people that have ventured up Howe Sound. The South end of Bowen, which everyone has been waiting for, has still been slow but with the weather and the water conditions it has not been fished very much. The West side off Bowen island Tunstall, 3rd marker, Hutt, Grace islands a few fish have been caught. The Gulf islands a few fish have been caught off Thrasher rock which is a great. If this weather stays nice and it warms up we should see the fishing pick up quite quickly.

Great way to start the 1st charter of the season.   Had a 3 people from P.E.I on there first Vancouver salmon fishing charter.  We started the day off with checking the traps that had been left out in Howe sound the day before, we got 6 legal dungeness crab and 400 prawns, a great way to start the day.  

We then headed over to the West side of Bowen island and started at 3rd marker before the high slack.  We lost a small Spring salmon in the first half hour but nothing else.  When the tide started to slow down near the high and the bait came into the area we hit a 16lb Spring  dragging the bottom on an army truck spoon.  Soon after we hit another 14lb Spring on the same thing dragging the bottom right off the cabin at 3rd marker.  We trolled around for another hour the bait seemed to move on and a couple seals moved in also we called it a day and headed back to deal with the days catch.  A good way to start the charter seaon the water was flat calm and didn’t rain till the last hour or so of the charter.  Until next time good luck. Don’t forget to send us an email or give us a call if you would like to arrange a charter.
