Winter Salmon Fishing in VancouverDeparting 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

Winter Chinook Salmon Report for Vancouver and Sidney - Early December
Dec 1, 2020
We have been enjoying the start of the winter chinook fishing season in Vancouver and Sidney, BC. We have seen decent numbers of fish, pretty good weather and steady catches of prawns and a few crabs! Winter is one of our favourite times to go fishing in British Columbia. Our weather is the warmest in Canada and when needed, we just turn our diesel heaters on!
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.

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!!View all
