Howe Sound Pink Salmon update
August 17th 2017
 
Its offical... the Pink Salmon are at Furry creek in BIG numbers finally!! Casting and stripping pink streamer patterns is deadly effective for those fly guys. Gear chucking Buzz Bombs, Zingers and pink spoons is equally as lethal.

Sturgeon fishing has been fantastic from Chilliwack down river as far as Ladner. This has probaly been the best season we have seen for consistent numbers of big fish in the lower river.. alot of regular customers have been reporting quite a few fish in the 6 to 7 ft range and one confirmed 8 footer!! Eels, Eulichons, roe and dew worms have been working but it seems switching between baits has been a big difference maker, sometimes adding scent can also give you that extra edge. 
 
August 11th 2017
 
Our local Saltwater fishery is starting to heat up now. The first waves of Pink Salmon have shown up in Vancouver harbour in healthy numbers and will continue to build strong in the next couple of weeks. We have had some good reports of Coho mixed up with the pinks as well. Trolling with Anchovies, small herring, hoochies and spoons will all work. If your targeting Salmon off of Ambelside, casting pink Buzz Bombs, Zingers and pink spoons are great effective options.
 
The Fraser bound summer red Chinook are here and will continue to come through in waves off the Fraser mouth until mid September and will be followed by the big bad fall Chinook!!
Point Grey South to The T-10 marker and the Sandheads within the boundary line (Fraser Mouth) is were you want to target these fish. The Sandheads has defenitly been the hot area this past week with multiple reports off fish up into the mid twenties. and one 30# er .
The Gulf Island Chinook fishery has been good, weather permitting.
The east side of Gabriola has been the hot area this past week with fish reported off the bottom in 100 to 220 feet of water. Fish have averaged around 12 to 15 pounds however good numbers of larger fish up into the mid twenties have been reported as well. 
 
Anchovies dyed in chartreuse Brine n Bite fished in Full metal jackets behind green and purple onion Hot spot flashers have been the hot tickets!
Purple haze and green splatter hoochies, Coyote, Kingfisher and the new Hot Pesca spoons in various colours are good bets as well.
