The Spring (King or Chinnook Salmon) have arrived off the south end of Bowen Island right on time. We have been lucky to boat 2 - 4 fish per trip weighing 8lbs - 20 lbs. Fish off the "hump" about 3 miles off shore where the water comes up to 550' - 450' in depth. Look at your chart and you will see the large plateau. Fish can be found anywhere from 65' to 160' on the riggers. Anchovy with glow heads and glow type 3" spoons (Irish Creme) have been the ticket. This Thursday and Friday should have a great mid to late morning bite.

Since my last post, we have been fishing off the eastern shoreline of Gabriola Island at Thrasher Rock northward to Nanaimo. The fishing is nothing short of being "off the hook". Other guides and myself have been averaging double digit hook ups and limiting out our guests with 10-25 lb Chinooks with ling cod and the odd halibut to 15 lbs as an added bonus. I have been away for the past 10 days visiting our newest grandchild (4th) and the fishing reports still remain hot. Fish are being found from 90' down to 160' in the water column and out from 1200' depths to 200' depths. Anything that green/white combination glow spoons and hootchies with glow green flashers are working well. If you find a school of fish, mark it on the GPS and fish them hard! We have had some days when you have your limit within an hour, then it's catch and release or bottom fishing. Good luck and sharp hooks!
