SALTWATER FISHING REPORT  (August 22nd, 2019)

Chinook salmon are now open in our local waters!! click the link below for all of the details. The mouth of the fraser from Point Grey south to the Sandheads has been nothing but incredible for the last 3 weeks!!. reports have been coming in steady of fish up in to the 30's and every body has been limiting out .. Depths do not seem to be an issue due to the massive numbers of fish so just get out there and drop year gear!! everything has been working. Anchovies, Herring, Spoons, Hoochies, even big plugs have been working. We don't expect to see things slowing down anytime soon as we havent even really seen any big numbers of Fall White Chinook yet, This run of average large sized Chinook traditionally starts showing up off the Fraser from now until the end of September. Pink Salmon are just starting to show up and should just keep building in numbers. Traditionally the Fraser Pink run doesn't really start until late August and early September.

August 1 st  Coastwide opening for Chinook is happening !
