The long hot summer days are here and are making for some amazing days on the water. Fishing has been decent over the last couple weeks off West Van for coho and chinooks and in Howe Sound for chinook. Productive depths off West Van have varied from 20-90 feet. The springs have been a little deeper and the coho are generally in the top third of the water column. Anchovy has been the most consistent producer for the chinook while white hootchies are still taking the majority of the coho. The West Van area has been fishing better on a flood tide.

We are eagerly awaiting the sockeye to start staging off the Fraser River Mouth. There are already sockeye in the river so they should start stacking up off the mouth here in the next week or so. This can be a very exciting fishery with lots of action. The most productive areas for sockeye are usually off the Sandheads, Canoe Pass, and the T-10. Trolling pink gear dead slow should keep you busy if the fish are there. Watch your sounder and look for schools of finning fish. It is not a bad idea to run an anchovy behind one of your flashers as there is always some big chinooks around as well. This fishery should peak in the last couple weeks of August.

Good Luck Jason
