May 7th 2024 Fishing Report

 

Vedder River

We have had a fantastic steel heading season. Multiple fish have been caught everyday. Now that we transition into the summer months the Vedder river is restricted to fly fishing only until June 30th. In addition you can only fish below the crossing bridge.

Saltwater Report 

We have had an excellent winter feeder fishery. Now that things have shut down in terms of local salmon fishing. We are patiently waiting for our next opening, which in the previous years areas such as Entrance Island and Gower Point allow for retention of Chinook after July 15th. Despite our salmon closures, bottom fishing has opened up. We have the opportunity to retain lingcod and rockfish over in the Gulf Islands. Get your jigging rods, herring, and jigs ready to catch tasty cod. Crabbing has picked up significantly in the harbour and along the Fraser mouths whether that be North or South Arm. Prawning has been consistent throughout year, make sure you have good bait to attract these critters.
