Good News. Large numbers of chinook ranging from 15 to 35 pounds hit the Pt. Grey area this past weekend, and the chinook fishing became hot by anyone's standards on Sunday morning.

Anglers trolling along the northern shoreline of Point Grey from Jericho to the Bell Buoy encountered a hot bite of chinook all morning long, and most boats went home with between two and four large chinook and had other hooked up. Anchovies trolled from 50 to 80 feet took most of the fish, but several fish were also taken on hootchies. We had a bit of a prelude to the action on Saturday as a few large fish were hit throughout the day, but the real numbers of fish waited until Sunday to show.

Up until Saturday morning we had been experiencing some of the worst local fishing in several years. The sockeye fishery was closed by Fisheries and Oceans only five days after announcing that it was open, so it never really got started. In addition, we have seen very few coho holding off West Vancouver so far this summer, since water levels in the Capilano River remained relatively high through the first part of July allowing the fish that were arriving to migrate directly up river.
