FishingBC App
 
The FishingBC app, Apple version is available now with the Android version coming soon. It ’s free, and is already providing thousands of anglers with real-time access to regulations and other fishing-friendly features.  Anglers can find species and area specific regulations through map tools which identify their current location and species of interest. Because of how DFO has organized information to be delivered to the app, anglers now have access to virtually everything they need to know on their portable electronic devices. In addition to providing current regulatory information, the Fishing BC app has several other important features:
• It holds an electronic copy of your recreational licence and a permanent record of your catch log;
•It allows photos and entries to be shared by social media or e-mail directly from the app
IF you have an Apple iphone get the app today and in preperation for the coming season.

June 25th, 2017

 

chinook fishing has been fair to good. the Gulf Islands have produced the most consistent numbers this past week.. Most of the fish have been reported off shore of Thrasher rock in the 800 foot of water area between 120 to 150 deep. Polier Pass south to Active pass has been fairly consistent as well... This side of the straight has slowed down a bit as it seems we are in between runs of fish however, the Sunshine Coast has been on fire for the last week so we should see that band of fsh show up locally any time!

Anchovies dyed in green Pro-Cure Brine n Bite fished in Full metal jackets ,small herring, Purple haze and green splatter hoochies and spoons are all good bets. Clear jelly crush and UV jelly glo flashers have been hot tickets!!
