Vancouver Fishing Charter Update - Mid JulyOur July fishery in Vancouverl waters is off to a good start. There is significantly more chinook salmon around than normal for this time of year and the coho fishing has been pretty consistent. On the far side of the Strait, Gabriola Island has been excellent for the last couple of months! All in all, 2019 has been a very good year to date!

Excellent Salmon Fishing in VancouverThe last couple weeks have been some of the best chinook fishing in recent memory over on the Gulf Island's. Local fishing has been productive as well with some very nice chinook salmon. Chinook salmon are currently catch and release until July 15th. Hatchery coho salmon are open for retention as are ling cod on our longer full day trips to the Gulf Island. Fishing in Vancouver is one of the best activities you can do in the summer!

Great weather and productive salmon fishing!Over the last number of years, May has definitely proven to be one of the best times for chinook salmon fishing in the Vancouver area, this is May is no different! Despite the regulation changes, we are enjoying solid catch and release fishing for chinook (until July 15th) in all of the usual spring spots. We have been successful sending our guests home with some dungeness crabs and on some of our longer charters ling cod and spot prawns! We have seen the odd early coho salmon as well. The DFO is forecasting a strong return of coho this year, so we are hopeful that we will see excellent coho fishing like we saw last June off the South End of Bowen Island and the Gulf Island's!

Spring is here and the Offshore Fishery is starting!We are now transitioning into a spring pattern in our local Vancouver fishery. After a productive winter fishery in Howe Sound and the inner reaches of English Bay, the offshore fishery has started. Over the last week there has been decent numbers of fish showing up out in the deep! This trend will continue and the fishing should continue to improve in coming weeks.

Vancouver Fishing Charters - Late February ReportWe have been out quite a bit in recent weeks and have enjoyed some good fishing in Vancouver. Winter fishing for chinook salmon has been fairly consistent in Vancouver Harbour and Howe Sound. We have been dropping traps for Spot prawns and Dungeness Crabs and spot prawns and have had very good results.
