Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report – April 28



The salmon fishing has continued to be good over the last few weeks.  We have been fishing very close to Bowen Island, the QA marker and further out in the straight off the ‘Hump”on our 6 and 8 hour charters.  Some other spots like ‘hole in the wall’ and Seymour Bay have also kicked out a few nice springs for us lately as well.

We have been catching chinook on a variety of gear.  These fish don’t seem to be fussy when you put good gear in front of them. We have landed fish on glow hoochies in white and blue, Silver Horde spoons in UV purple, Gibbs ‘Cop Car’ spoons and also a beauty a few days ago with a jumbo herring in a UV teaser head.  Productive depths have been 70 – 110′.  Covering water is the key.  Lots of Hake out there so constantly clearing lines is needed.

                             Dr. Jay Nagamatsu with a beauty 16lb. chinook caught of Bowen.  Prawn traps were full as well.


We were out this morning at 07:00 and quickly put a 8lb. chinook in the box within the first 30 minutes then we were promptly blown off the QA marker by high winds, so we retreated to protected waters in Seymour Bay for rest of the morning.

Fishing should continue to remain steady over the next month here locally off Bowen Island, then we will transition to our popular Gulf Island charters May and June for chinook and ling cod.  These are 8 or 10 hour charters only.
