Chinook fishing is a bit more erratic, as some of the mature fish have headed towards their home rivers. Entrance Island is still producing well, bottom bouncing in 180 to 220 feet of water with the T-Rex hoochie. The jigging is also productive there, Find the bait schools and fish below and around them with Half Jigs and Perkins for best results. Grande to Whalebone and Thrasher have lots of Jack Chinook present, but these are generally under the 24 1/2 inch minimum size limit and must be released. On September 1st the 80 cm. top end size restriction comes off, and you can retain two Chinook per day, with no top end size limit.

There are Coho present at Entrance, but 90% of these are wild fish, and must be released. Jigging in the top 30 to 40 feet is the best method for catching Coho right now.

There are some Pinks off Entrance also, which are mostly being caught incidentally while fishing for Chinook and Coho.

The prawning is improving, expect 60 per trap.

Good fishing!
