Bon Chovy Fishing Charters Report, Oct 26

The local saltwater fishery over the last couple weeks has been extremely challenging. The good fishing for mature chinook in the mid to latter part of Septemberoff the Mouth of the Capilano came to a screaming halt with the first big rains of early October. We have struggled to get a hook up or two since early October on our charters. There is the odd chum salmon still breaking the suface off of West Vancouver but it is safe to say that it is now time to shift gears and focus on winter chinook salmon.

We spent some time searching for winter chinook salmon on the 25th and 26th of October with limited success in Vancouver Harbour. We landed of handful of juvenille chinook and had one decent fish on that was lost on our 2 charters this weekend. Should be anyday now before Vancouver Harbour sees some more consistent winter chinook action. Last year the fishing got fairly active in late October/early November. On a more positive note the backside of Bowen Island produced a number of decent winter chinooks this morning in the 9-15 pound range.

Fishing for winter chinook should start to pick up any day now. There is lots of bait in the harbour which bodes well for a good start to the season.

Crabbing has started to pick up in the harbour now that the commercial season has started to taper off!

Give us a call to book a winter chinook charter!
