2019 OUTLOOK

VANCOUVER SALMON FISHING

We’re looking forward to a solid year of fishing in 2019. Local salmon fishing here in Vancouver was quite good throughout the 2018 season and early season fishing has been great, which bodes well for the rest of the year. Strong populations of bait and favourable ocean conditions will spell  a good year of salmon fishing around Vancouver, Howe Sound and the southern Gulf Islands.

During the 2018 season in April and May we had really good chinook salmon fishing in Howe Sound (accessed on our full-day trips), 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 it will pick up again starting in early July.
July through late September 2019 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 Vancouver salmon fishing charters.
If you’d like to fish with us in 2019 we’d love to have you. Our business is built on great service, honest advice and a crew of the best salmon fishing guides in Vancouver. Head to our contact page to send us an inquiry.

SUMMER & FALL

VANCOUVER 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.

WINTER & SPRING

VANCOUVER SALMON FISHING

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.
