Saltwater Report
April 19th, 2018
 
Spring is upon us! This means some of the migratory Chinooks will start making their way down the coast! Reports this past week from the south end of Bowen island aka (the hump) have been fantastic with multiple boats reporting six to eight fish days! prouductive depths have been between 80 and 150 feet. expect this fishery to remain red hot for the next few weeks...  Gabriola, Thrasher Rock and Polier have been quite good as well with some fish even reaching the high teens. Locally, fishing from the North Arm to the Bell Bouy has been quite good for feeder Chinook. There has also been a fish fish still coming from Tunstall Bay.
 
Be sure to check out the new Pesca Forage spoons which are perfect for Winter Chinook fishing. If you are using bait try dying your Anchovies with Procure Chartruse Brine, this can make a big difference in making sure the fish see's your presentation

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.
