Winter Salmon Fishing in Vancouver

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


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
It would have been a good day without any fish, but getting two big Chinook made the day even better Mike M
