Vancouver Fishing Report August 29th
It’s the end of August and the Chinook are showing up as expected! There has been some great sunny days but unfortunately it also brings the Nor-Westerlies making it uncomfortable and sometimes downright crazy to go out. There has been some exceptional fishing this past week for Chinook off the Fraser River areas: Bell Buoy, T-10, and Sandheads. Since the Chinook started showing up, so have the orcas as they like to dine on Chinooks as much as we do. Great for whale watching and but slows the catching down considerably. But when the winds abated and the orcas were elsewhere on the hunt, multiple hook ups of 10 – 20 lb plus Chinooks were the norm. Bite times were really consistent with slack tide at the high or the low of the tide changes. I fully expect this fishery of Fraser River bound red Chinooks to last another 2 weeks before we move over to the Capilano River fishery off the West Vancouver water front. Call and book your charter!
