The end of the season for the migratory salmon is here There are still some chum salmon bouncing around, but the local white chinook fishery is done for another year with these recent rains. The fall fishery for chinook off West Van was a little slower than usual this year. It seemed like the most consistent fishing was later this year. We had our most consistent trips from the 10th to the 25th of October. Usually the fishing is at its best off the Cap in late September and early October. Chalk it up to an odd year!

Winter chinook will be the mainstay of the local fishery for the coming months. Winter chinook range in size from 2 to 15 pounds. This winter fishery typically provides the most consistent action of the year. These fish are actively feeding and usually less challenging to catch then migratory fish . We generally focus are attention in English Bay. Spanish Banks, Jericho, the QB marker, and the Cap mouth are all good bets. Look for bait on the sounder!! We find we get our best success on coyote spoons behind flashers. We usually run our downriggers between 70 and 120 feet in the winter.

Call us to book a winter chinook charter!

Good Luck
