Granville Island Fishing Report, June 9th
The Gulf Island's chinook salmon fishery has continued to be very productive. The fishery this year has been incredibly consistent with very good numbers of chinook up to 30 pounds. Sure there has been the odd slow day, but typically 6 to 10 hook ups a charter on good legal chinook has been the daily average. Over the last week we have been pleasantly surprised on the number of coho salmon off Entrance, Gabriola and Snake Islands. We have hooked quite a few fish incidentally while fishing for chinook. Iron Marlin hit a school of coho this week where they hooked a dozen coho in a very short period of time. Boats that are targeting coho specifically are doing landing some nice hatchery fish.
This year over on the Gulf Island's spoons have been the way to go. We have been running the larger Gibbs and Silver Horde Spoons behind green or glow Highliner Flashers. Productive depths have been anywhere from 100 to 180 feet. We have spent most of our time trolling the eastern shoreline of Gabriola Island.
We are still awaiting the first push of Capilano bound coho in Vancouver Harbour. We are VERY optimistic that we are going to have a very good coho season off West Vancouver as there is already lots of coho in Georgia Strait and the snow pack is melting very quickly. It is quite likely that coho fishing will start to really perk up in the next 10 days or so in Vancouver Harbour.
Give us a call to book a fishing trip! We have some great options right now!
