Winter Salmon Fishing in Vancouver

Departing Granville Island, we leave the sky scrapers behind and head up to Howe Sound to fish for winter chinook salmon. This great fishing is only a short boat ride from downtown Vancouver.


It would have been a good day without any fish, but getting two big Chinook made the day even better Mike M
Went for a 2-day all day charter for sockeye salmon. 3 of us. limited both days (even the captain, Jason got 4 fish the first day and 1 the second day). The sockeye were running, so limiting is fairly easy right now, but we limited much quicker than other boats, and Jason worked his butt off for us. We had a great 2 day adventure and recommend Bon Chovy for a charter without a doubt!! Leigh
Don't think my father or I will ever forget how much fun we had salmon fishing with Bon Chovy (Jason). Had to be the best day I've ever had fishing. Limited out on Spring (avg ~15-20lbs) Appreciate your skill and expertise out there on the water. These guys are pros. Thanks so much for making it such a great day.... Steven Wright

Vancouver Fishing Report - September 2020
Sep 9, 2020
After a long wait, Vancouver area anglers have lots of options to take advantage of. With virtually all the traditional Vancouver salmon fishing areas now open and subject to full retention, September is shaping up to be the most anticipated month of the year. There certainly has been some good waves of chinook coming into local waters, but there has also been some tough tides where we have had to work for our bites. The slower days have often followed visits from salmon eating killer whales. The Gulf Island’s are still producing a few fish, but most anglers are now focusing on the local Vancouver waters.

We are seeing coho numbers start to increase this week on our Vancouver Fishing Charters. In Sidney and the Gulf Island's we have seen good numbers of chinook salmon . This is perfect timing as chinook retention begins on July 15th in some areas and August 1st in some other locations. Time to go fishing in Vancouver or Sidney, BC!!
