Vancouver Fishing Report, October 7th
Pretty exciting weekend of fishing! Our full day trips to the Fraser River Mouth had some excellent coho and chum action on both Saturday and Sunday mornings. Iron Marlin hooked a dozen coho and a chum on Saturday and Van Herring hooked a dozen nice coho on Sunday. There were some hatchery coho in the mix, but most fish were wild. We had our success on hootchies and Gibbs UV Lemon Lime and Chartreuse Glow/Silver Flashers. We should see numbers of chum to build as the next few weeks are when the bulk of the Fraser River chum salmon enter the river. If you are looking to do a salmon charter a full day trip to the Fraser Run is the one to do right now.... We should see this fishery last for another couple weeks.
The Capilano Mouth, our go to spot in the fall, has been really tough. The monsoon like rains we had last week could not of come at a worse time. The successive days of heavy rain coincided with the peak of the chinook salmon run. The high water last week encouraged the bulk of the chinook run to enter the river. We had a couple local charters out yesterday, and the results were not very encouraging. We may see some more fish show in the next few days as the water is now quite low in the Capilano River. We are hoping anyway.
Sturgeon fishing has been fantastic and will continue to be productive for the next couple months. There is a ton of food in the Fraser River right now and the sturgeon are keying in on the spawning salmon. Our sturgeon trips have been averaging 6 to 15 hook ups on sturgeon a trip over the last couple trips. If you are looking for an active trip with some big fish, a sturgeon trip is an excellent bet in the coming weeks and months.. Our sturgeon boat is only 15 minutes from downtown Vancouver.
