Sorry for the long periods betweeen reports. The fishing over the last few days there were mixed with some great but some with not so great days. We’re still waiting for summer to arrive so we can get started with the Vancouver salmon fishing season. The Gulf islands around the area of Thrasher still report red hot or for some people cold. I know a lot of boats that were limited out with one boat catching 8 with several others with 4 or 6 but there were also a lot of boats with 1. They were in pockets and if you hit one of the pockets you did great. Most of the springs were betweeen 12 and 18 pounds. This side of the strait closer to down town Vancouver has had mixed reports also. The Capilano river has a bunch of Coho in it in the next week or so if it doesn’t rain there will be good fishing on the West van shoreline for Coho and a few Spring salmon. Howe Sound over the last few days has been producing also with Grace islands, hole in the wall and Defence islands producing some nice Springs up to 20lbs. One boat at Defence got 4 nice ones on Saturday, the biggest being 19lbs. A good week over all if the water stays nice and calm and we fianlly get some summer weather it’s looking like a good month in front of us. Until next time good luck if you need any questions asked feel free to call and i will help you out any way i can.

What a beautiful day Salmon Fishing in Vancouver. We headed out around 9am from Howe sound to the South end of Bowen Island. We started about 2 miles off. We had a great day we ended up keeping a 11, 17lb Spring lost one and released one not bad for starting mid morning. Most boats off the South end of Bowen got a legal Spring and a chance at a couple more with a few boats doing better. We caught all our fish between 100 and 130ft on anchovies. The Gulf islands today were exellent with alot of the boats limiting out with between 2 and 6 legal fish. They were catching Springs from North of Naniamo to Thrasher rock fishing offshore 2 to 4 miles. Prawning was great we are only fishing 2 traps right now in shallow water and we got around 200. Until next time good luck.
Another couple stormy days in the greater Vancouver area. The good news is in the last 4 or 5 days when people can get out in this weather there seems to be alot more feed showing up. There seems to be feed showing up at Hole in the Wall to Lions Bay when this weather calms down there should be some Springs to be caught. There also is some feed showing up at the usual spots on the West side of Bowen Island, 3rd marker, Tunstal, and Hutt island. I did know one boat that did get for an hour or so of fishing at Grace island and did manage to get a 10lb Spring before he got blown out of there. The prawning and crabbing remains very good. Hopefully this weather blows itself out and we get some settled weather and fishing should pick up quite quickly. It’s very close to the time of year we start to fish the South end of Bowen island. Should be some great fishing there are some blue backs which are small Coho salmon already are in the Stait Of Georgia. If you want any questions answered feel free to call and ask I’ll help you out any way I can to make your visit more enjoyable to Vancouver.
