Saltwater Report
September 6th, 2018
 
Sockeye fishing will be non- retention as of Sept 27th @ 23:59 hours. 
For Chinook the best baits are Anchovies, smaller Herring, Green Glow Spoons and Hoochies in splatter colour. With the drier weather upon us the West Vancouver Coho fishery has been quite good, Anchovies and White Hoochies are the ticket at depths of 20ft to 50ft.
 
Be sure to check out our HUGE selection of spoons from Pesca, Coyote, Silver Horde, Titan, Iron Needle and Gibbs. 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.

• 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
