Finally some sun 2 days in a row. The best fishing in vancouver is still to head to the gulf islands for a full day trip. The best fishing seems to be at Thrasher Rock to a few miles out and up to the Grande. Alot of boats are still getting there limits if they hit the pockets of fish and most of the fish seem to weigh in the teens. Its a great day to go over to the Gulf islands and with Watermark being 34ft if the wind blows up we will still get a nice ride home and we just turn the heat on. This side of the Strait it has slowed down a bit the South end of Bowen island has slowed down and usually does at this time of year. Howe Sound has produced some nice fish at Hutt, Defence islands, Porteau Cove, and Hole in the Wall in the last week and most fish weighing in the teens with the biggest i know of being in the low 20’s. I will be out a lot this week with a weekend in the Gulf islands and a couple days in the week so till the next report good luck. If you need to book a charter or get any other info you need about Vancouver i would be pleased to help. Have a good few next days.

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.
The fishing has picked up quite abit in the last few days around vancouver. In the last few days there have been some fish caught in English Bay, the Bell Buoy, the South end of Bowen, and Grace island. Hopefully the last few days is the start of our Spring fishery. English bay off the Capilano to the Dundarave peir on the flood has produced a few nice Spring from being just undersize to the mid teens. The Bell Buoy there were a few more smaller undersize fish with a few legal fish in the 8 to 14lb range. In Howe Sound at Grace island a boat had a few good hours there losing a nice fish getting a nice fish and two undersize fish also. The South end of Bowen island it seems the better luck has been a mile or two off Cowans to Roger Curtis. The fish here have ranged in size from just legal to about 15lbs with one boat yesterday getting three legal and losing two other good ones in a short time. The Gulf islands seem to have picked up abit also so everything seems to have started. This is the time of year we go out one day and we get busy it seems to be heading that way it usually happens in mid April. If you have any questions feel free to call and you’ll get an honest answer have a great day.
What a beautiful day to be on the water in the Strait of Georgia. We left Horseshoe Bay at 1130am and headed out of Howe Sound to the South end of Bowen island. We got our gear down around noon 4 miles of Roger Curtis. We trolled around for an hour or so and didn’t see much. There was no wind and the Stait of Georgia was flat calm
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!
