2017 Outlook

What to expect if you’re fishing with us this year…

We couldn’t be off to much of a better start for 2017!  Local salmon fishing here in Vancouver has been ‘hot chocolate’ (yes that means good), with lots of bait around and a better average size of fish than we usually see for early season. These factor bode well for the rest of our year and give us optimism that the 2017 saltwater salmon fishing season on BC’s southern coast is going to be solid.
Last year in April and May we had really good chinook (king) salmon fishing off the southern Gulf Islands, with lots of fish in the high teen range. This year we’re expecting the same, if not better as early numbers are definitely up.  As we move into June we can sometimes have a lull in the local fishing, that happens every year but then it fires up again later in the month.
July through late September should see lots of local action, specifically in the Vancouver area and off the mouth of the Fraser River. Cooler ocean conditions over the winter and lots of early season bait mean fish will be hanging out longer and be more active, we like that!  All in all we’re expecting a really good year, for an up-to-date report contact us, we’ll give you the latest update on whats going our with salmon fishing in Vancouver.
We make planning a Vancouver salmon fishing trip extra easy. You can contact us via the inquiry forms on this page, email us vancouverfishingtrips@gmail.com or call our our toll-free 1-877-902-3393 to book your trip.

SUMMER & FALL

PRIME TIME SALMON FISHING

From July through to September our local waters around Vancouver offer consistent salmon fishing for all five species of Pacific salmon, including chinooks (kings), cohos (silvers), pinks and sockeye.
This is a popular time for salmon fishing in Vancouver, with generally nice weather and favourable ocean conditions. The fishing we do in the Summer months is usually done locally, along the West Vancouver shoreline or off the mouth of the Fraser River. The Fraser River is home to millions of returning salmon each Summer and they have to swim by us before going into their native spawning grounds.
Come August and September the focus is fishing for big chinook (king) salmon off the mouth of the Capilano River, a short 15 minute run from the boat moorage. This is often when we see the biggest fish of our year, with consistent fishing for chinooks in the 15-25 pound range! This is a great time to be here, but remember dates do book up early for Summer charters so its good to book early.

Our Vancouver salmon fishing charters are one of the best Vancouver fishing trips going during the summer months. Bring your family and your friends out for an enjoyable day on the water, catching fish and enjoying the sites of Vancouver from the water.

WINTER & SPRING

SALMON FISHING FROM VANCOUVER

Winter fishing?  You bet, Vancouver enjoys a 365 day a year salmon fishery. During the Winter months it may be a bit wet and a tad cool but there is definitely some saltwater fishing to be had. Come Spring time the fishing picks up big time, February through April offers excellent fishing for chinook salmon.
Local waters team with life during the Winter months, as feeder (juvenile) chinook salmon come into Vancouver harbour and Howe Sound to feed on the amassing bait. With variable weather conditions fishing can be sometime tricky, but if you don’t mind a bit of cold then there are ample Vancouver salmon fishing opportunities to be had.
Spring months offer some of the best fishing of the year, especially in the Howe Sound area, north of Vancouver. This inlet, flanked by snow capped mountains, and dotted with small islands offers a solid rearing ground for chinook salmon that feed heavily on the herring. Another favourite spot, as we move into later April and May is the southern Gulf Islands, where fishing for chinooks in the 10-20 pound range can be very consistent.  Both areas are accessed on our full-day 10 hour trips.

There’s lots of good chinook (king) salmon fishing in Vancouver during the Spring months. On full days we often drop prawn and crab traps as well.

“We’ve used Chromer Sport Fishing for a variety of trips, including several Vancouver salmon fishing charters. They are professional, service oriented and always nice to deal with. Would 100% recommend them!”
