Want to fish in a parking lot? Come over to the Capilano River off West Vancouver and see the zoo. However, the Chinooks are in and it's only getting better. Last Sunday, we boated 8 of 12 Chinooks between 6:45am and 8:00am for our 6 guests. Use anchovy just off the bottom. Then go off the North Arm, T-10 or Sandheads for outstanding pink fishery with Chinooks and Cohos to tease you as well. What a way to end the summer!

I normally avoid the crowds but with the Chinook reports I am hearing, I am tempted.... are you down-rigging the anchovy? Or mooching?

It's all downrigging. Fish are expected into the 3rd week of October. 35 springs boated last Wednesday by the local guides and then slowed down Thursday and Friday (just when the Vancouver Fire Department had their derby on Thursday and North Shore Fire Department had their derby on Friday.) With this weekend of rain, we can expect a new wave of Chinooks to be in this week.
