Hey guys,

Long time lake fisherman and north Vancouver island salmon and hali guy, but never spent any time around the Fraser or local waters fishing for salmon. With the sockeye coming in, I'd love to get out, but simply don't know where to go. Have an 18' double eagle, so don't want to get right into the river, but am thinking around the mouth? Any help? Any suggestions on where to launch? Not asking for gear or depth tips, just some basic location help.

Thanks in advance.

Launch in steveston at the harbour authority at the end of 2 rd.

follow the markers about 25mins then out past the light ship, fish will be
to the north or south 1/4 mile out in 120ft-500ft of depth riggers between 45-75'
look for jumpers and stay away from the crab bouys.
you will see the boats, they are usualy on the school, but not always.

tim...

Just have a quick look in the salt forum here and you will see all the info you will need on gettin' into the sox.

In a nutshell.....anywhere from the Point Grey Bell Buoy area (off of UBC)....going south past the North Arm of the Fraser....South Arm....Sandheads etc. You'll be able to figure out "where" just by looking for the massive pack of boats dragging flashy stuff around. ;)

I just see that Richmond posted up as well.....if you are trailering over here you can launch in Richmond or at Vanier Park right close to downtown Vancouver. Just pay heed to the tides around the mouth as with an incoming tide and possible wind it can get a "bit" ;) snarly around the mouth of the Fraser.

The Harbour Authority launch has lots of water in all tides, the freebe launch 500 meters to the east of No.2 Rd. you need to watch the tides.
