Chinook fishing continues to be superb. Grande to waterfall is producing fish on the bottom in 180 to 200 feet of water with Mongoose or Cookies and Cream spoons. Entrance is fishing well outside Entrance Reef, and West of the yellow marker in 150 to 250 feet of water. Clyde, Steve, Dame, and the boys are experiencing some terrific jigging off the yellow marker, and on Entrance Reef. They are fishing water depths of 50 to 120 feet, with most of the bait schools hovering around 60 feet.
There are more Coho coming into the Entrance Island area, and they are being caught on jigs at shallow depths. 90% of these are wild fish, and must be released. We released a 8 pound wild Coho off the Grande, and they are such beautiful fish!
The Pinks are swarming off Vancouver, and there are a few being taken here incidentally while fishing Chinook.
I ended up doing four bottom fishing charters in a row last week. We caught some nice Ling and rockfish in depths of 50 to 60 feet. I was using medium herring on slider setups, with 6 ounces of weight.
Prawning is off and on. One day we caught 130 in two traps, the next day 40. Hopefully, it will continue it’s recovery, and things will get good again, soon!
