Another decent week around Vancouver with the gulf islands really started to come on. With the weather being better this week people have been out on the water a bit more and more fish have been hit. Howe sound has died off a bit but not many people have been fishing the sound since the South end of Bowen island has started to produce. There seems to be good days followed by a slower day. One reason for this is the killer whales have come by a few times this week so have a few big groups of dolphin. The salmon have generally been caught between 100 – 150ft on a mixture of spoons, hootchies, and bait. The fish that have been caught have been 14 to 20lbs real nice fish for this time of year. The Gulf islands from North of Naniamo to Thrasher has been nothing but excelent. Mainly fishing offshore 2 to 4 miles many boats have been limiting out with fish between 15 – 25lbs and it should continue with the South end of Bowen getting better also as the fish move down. Most of the fish over the other side of the Strait have been caught between 120 – 180 ft on spoons and hootchies. Crabbing and prawning remain good. Good luck till next time

Sorry for the long time without a report just enjoying the summer fishing and enjoying the water. Over the last couple weeks there have been ups and downs in the fishing. The weather has been great and generally calm. In late August the South arm off the Fraser river was loaded with pinks, a long run but was well worth it. The Bell Buoy has had it’s good days and some slower days with a few Springs, Pink, Sockeye, and the odd Coho being caught. The last week the West van shoreline has started to heat up for those September Springs. Fishing from the Pink apartment to the Marker off the Capilano River on the flood is the tide to fish. We’ve been doing well on Jack Springs and our biggest Spring weighed in at 31lbs. If you have to fish the ebb tide there has been some good fishing at the Bell buoy. The biggest I’ve herd about was a 36lb Spring with a few more in the 20lb range. From now till the end off September or if the rains hold off into october is when we get our biggest fish of the year in English Bay to the Capilano river. It’s a Great time to try and catch your tyee to end the year off on a great note after a great summer of fun on the water. Untill the next report good luck hope to see you out there. The crabbing remains great and we’ll start prawning soon when a few less people are on the water.
The fishing has picked up on the west side of Bowen in the last few days. The Spring salmon fishing in Howe Sound on the west side of Bowen island has picked up at Grace Islands, Hutt Island, and 3rd Marker. The weather has been on our side and some nice Springs in the 8 to 16 pound range have been caught there also have been quite a few undersize fish caught also that range in size from 5lbs to just undersize. It should just keep getting better as the Spring moves on and we’ll start fishing off the South end of Bowen Island to the Gulf Islands soon. Crabbing and Prawning remains great. Until next time good luck.
