FRESHWATER August 11th

A recent Vedder River Summer Chinook!
The Squamish river is now open for CATCH AND RELEASE pink salmon fishing. This is a fun and easy fishery for all skill levels! Within the past few days the first wave of pinks have showed up in the river. Fishing with spoons, spinners, jigs, and flies are the most common methods for this fishery. Pinks are also a lot of fun on a stripped or swung fly. Make sure to stop by the store for expert advice on this upcoming fishery.

Saltwater August 11th
Local Saltwater fishing has been extremely productive lately! Fishing has been most productive in areas : Bowen Island, West Vancouver, Thrasher Rock, and Sunshine Coast. Coho and Pink salmon are in abundance in our local Vancouver waters. These fish are generally in 50 feet or less of water. Trolling spoons and hoochies behind a flasher will yield the best results. Chinook fishing has also been great in SELECT AREAS. Thrasher rock, Sunshine Coast, and Entrance Island are producing the best results right now. Fishing deeper and slower with anchovies, herring, spoons, and hoochies have been productive methods for chinook.
Fishing off the beach at Furry Creek has been productive lately. Casting spoons and spinners are the best options for gear fisherman. Fly Fishing can also be extremely productive. Using small pink fly patterns, stripped on a sinking line will provide a fun and entertaining outing!
