Vancouver Salmon Fishing Report – Aug 23, 2016


The last week we have seen some of the best chinook fishing of the year. We have been hitting several big fish each charter with some fast and furious daily limits and multiple double headers. These Fraser River bound fish are big and feisty and are stacking up in good numbers between the the Bell Buoy inside the harbour and all the way down to the T-10 marker just off the YVR airport. We have been spending most of our time fishing a few miles south of the North Fraser jetty which is just 15 minutes from our dock.
The most productive depths have been 50-90 feet on the down riggers. We have been using anchovy, herring and hoochies with success. Anchovies with 6-8′ leaders behind a variety of Gibbs glow flashers have been the hottest ticket but glow white and glow splatter back hoochies have been very productive as well. It seems the chinook are coming through in schools because we have had several double and triple headers the last week. Most of the fish are between 12-25lbs. and hard fighters.

The next few weeks the fishing should remain HOT for chinook and as the pink salmon start to show up in the next week or so, the fishing will be amazing. If you are thinking of getting out for some salmon fishing this summer, the next month is the time to do it.
The pink salmon fishery over the next several weeks is perfect for kids from ages 5-95. Multiple fish days and not too hard to handle.
