SALTWATER FISHING REPORT
Bamfield
Submitted by Doug Lindores | Apr 22, 2014 3:34PM
Areas Around Bamfield Picking up - There are plenty of small feeder Chinook around the Bamfield area. The Harbor and the Bamfield Wall have had some nice feeder Chinook from Whittlestone right down to Sarita. We are expecting the size of the fish to increase as we should begin to see the first push of Columbia River Chinook making their way to the Great Watershed to the South of us. Chinook have been eight to ten pounds although over the Easter weekend a few fish in the mid teens were landed. Anchovy in a chartreuse tea [...]

Barkley Sound

A few Nice Salmon Showing in Sound Especially Surf Line Locations - The Columbia River push is just beginning. The last ten days has seen a few good sized spawners landed in surf line locations of Barkley Sound. Cree Island and Austin have had a few fish just over twenty pounds in 90 to 100 feet of water in the last week. Swale Rock and Vernon Bay have also been very good but most of the salmon in those two areas have been feeder Chinook. Anchovy, hootchies, and various three and a half and four inch coyote spoons have been working for most sport fish [...]

Dam The Honey Do List
Written by treblig | Apr 14, 2014
For me the honey do list is created by the task manager. That is usually me. Yes I know we call it a honey do list referring to the fact that it is created by another partner normally the wife, the girlfriend, the other. When I say it, it's in a more humorous tone as in reality it is ''I'' who is the toughest on myself.

The end of March is the official ending of both salt and fresh water licenses. This for me on the East Coast of Vancouver Island signifies the end of the seasons. From July to the end of March I dedicate myself to the sport I love fishing. I call it dedication but its an addiction. My days off, my holidays, my late shifts often in the morning before work, day shifts with the summer hours I can fish till 10pm after I come home from work.

Unfortunately from April to June I can only go out when my frien [...]

Report Image 1 Squamish River Valley
Submitted by Silversides Guided Fishing | Apr 10, 2014 9:02AM
Fly fishing the Squamish river near Vancouver - Fly fishing on the Squamish river has been extremely good lately!
Salmon fry are plentiful and lots of big trout are gorging on them(that's a hint for fly choice). The river has big Bull trout, Rainbow's and Cutthroat PLUS Steelhead.
Our last trip a few days ago produced 2 Steelhead, numerous Bull's all the way up to 7 lbs, Cutthroat up to 3-4 lbs, Rainbow's to 3-4 lbs.
The Squamish should be an excellent choice for the next few weeks, as will the Cheakamus.
Or go for Salmo [...]

Winter Chinook Improving. Early April Had a Few Good Days Bamfield Summer Fishing Looks Fantastic - The Bamfield Wall and adjacent areas has been improving for Winter Chinook over the last few weeks. Early April has seen quite a bit more bait move in which pushes a flood of feeder Chinook in also. The general rule for feeder Chinook is ''where one finds the bait the salmon will be there. The Bamfield Wall from as far as Sarita Bay to Whittlestone has had plenty of good sized bait balls. The best spots have been right in the Bamfield Harbor, Scotch Bay and areas closer to Sarita Bay.

West Coast Fishing and Port Alberni Inlet Salmon Fishing Opportunities Outstanding for 2014 - With the many outlooks now posted and forecast the sport fishing opportunities in all Pacific Rim areas look outstanding for the 2014 salmon sport fishing season.

Returns of West Coast Vancouver Island Coho are termed abundant with returns forecast to be better than 2013. T [...]
