    Default Local Waters For Smaller Craft

    Hi guys (and gals). New to the salt water side of the forum but got the bad itch to try salt water after spending the last three weeks watching fishermen up and down the Oregon coast having great success.

    Always fished salmon on the Fraser (non-tidal), Harrison, Vedder but we have moved to Port Moody area.

    Are there sheltered local waters that I could get out with a Lund 14 ssv and try to hook into some of the local runs. Seems like the Cap mouth is an option.

    I would appreciate any advice (as long as it's not to buy a bigger boat...lol....that's just not in the cards right now)

    thanks,

    Get out to Indian arm right now and start fishing for Pinks. Lots of them around the power house.
    Keep in mind that there are Rockfish Conservation Areas where you are not allowed to fish. During pink salmon years many many people choose to ignore this rule. I'm not sure why DFO doesn't clamp down on this. Never seen a boat out there. Maybe they don't mind people targeting pinks in these RCA's.

    Spoke with a conservation officer. Can't fish for rockfish in the area it says what is closed it's very confusing online if it says no rockfish but you fish salmon your ok as long as you don't keep or rig up for rockfish. It can be closed to all fishing or just some
