August 16 update

The last few days we have seen some great salmon fishing out in the Vancouver area, although I only hooked 2 yesterday we landed 9 the day before and another 3 Chinook today. We should continue to see good catches of salmon out in the Vancouver area well through August and even into September.

I just read the latest Fisheries update and although they have closed the Fraser to salmon fishing for the time being, there are some substantial numbers of salmon rounding the corner of Vancouver Island and on their way to the Fraser. I would guess that this temporary closing of the Fraser River will be short lived so I would not get too excited yet.

If you are looking to get out for salmon, we have charters departing from the Delta Hotel & Granville Island daily.

Sturgeon fishing remains slow in the Mission area but lots of large fish rolling on Hatzic Flats, we have some good tides coming next week so we should see some improvement. The Canyon and mid river area is fishing fair to good and lower down near the Pitt has been good as well.

We will try to keep you up to date as best we can, lots of great fishing coming over the next few months.
