Solid Vancouver Fishing Continues!! May 15th
We have had quite the week of angling. Most of our trips over the last week had great results with good numbers of chinook salmon up to 26 pounds. Most trips are seeing 4 to 10 hook ups a trip! We had a great day locally yesterday hooking 8 legal fish, a couple undersize, and a nice coho!
We have been doing well off the South End of Bowen Island and the Gulf Islands. Over the last few days our local fishery off the South End of Bowen Island has been just as good as the Gulf Islands.
On the Vancouver side of Georgia Strait, the "Hump" has been quite good. It has been especially productive on the last couple hours of the ebb and the first hour of the flood over the last few days. Anchovies were the ticket mid week, but spoons were definitely outproducing bait for the fleet on the weekend. Silver Horde spoons in the 3.5 to 4 inch range and the No Bananas G Force were good producers from 70 to 130 feet.
Over on the Gulf Island's the offshore tacks from Entrance Island down to Thrasher Rock were pretty solid over the last week. The action slowed a bit late last week, but has since picked back up from the sounds of the radio chatter over the last few days. We have stayed on the Vancouver side so far this week as the fishing has been very good.
We will continue to focus our efforts on the South End of Bowen Island and the Gulf Islands for the rest of May. As we get into early June, the Gulf Island's will likely be best producing area.
The summer like weather and the heavy rain that has followed over the last 10 days has really done a good job reducing the snow pack on the local mountains. It is looking like we may have decent Coho salmon fishing by the third week of June if this trend continues. It would be great to have an early start to our West Vancouver fishery!!
Please give us a call or an email if you would like to head out and experience some of the solid chinook fishing we are having right now!
