Vancouver Fishing Report, October 15th
We have enjoyed some spectacular fall weather and some good fishing in Vancouver over the last few days! We have been spending most of our time off the Mouth of the Fraser River for returning coho and chum salmon. The bulk of our action has been off of Sandheads and further south towards Canoe Pass. We have been having our success on anchovies and glow/white hootchies behind Gibbs UV Lemon Lime and Moon Jelly Flashers. Productive depths have been between 30 and 80 feet. Keep a watchful eye on your fish finder as it is quite evident on your screen when you are going over small schools of coho. This coho fishery will likely last for another week or two . We have some stunning weather coming up! Give us a call if you would like to target these big, late season coho! All of our coho trips are 8 to 10 hour trips.
The Mouth of the Capilano River has perked up a little bit over the last few days. The river levels have finally stabilized after the heavy rain and mountain snow a couple weeks ago. It took quite a while for the river to drop this time around due to the volume of rain we had and the mountain snow that melted. The river has been at summertime low levels since Saturday and there is a few fish starting to show....a few, not a lot. Iron Marlin fished the Cap Mouth yesterday and landed a nice 17 pounder, got sealed on a good fish, and had another good hit. With the dry weather forecasted their will be fish trickling in for the next week or two. It is not likely that the fishery will really get good, but we should be able to pick away at the odd one.
Vancouver sturgeon fishing has remained extremely consistent with some good numbers of fish on virtually every charter recently. Luke and Eric have had very good results on the Lower Fraser using roe bags. Sturgeon fishing will continue to be very consistent through November. There is lots of food in the river and the sturgeon are feeding heavily. Our sturgeon charters are only 15 minutes from downtown Vancouver!
