Interesting post from Barkley Sound fishing guide Doug Lindores: http://www.catchsalmon-ca.com/index.php/fishing-reports
The summer salmon fishing seems to be changing. August and early September were often considered peak times for Chinook sport fishing. Because of the high numbers of transient Chinook salmon passing along the west coast of Vancouver Island from April to August it seems that the over last few years the peak of the season has been mid-June through July. This is not to say that Chinook sport fishing Halibut fishing has really improved. Most of the halibut migration from the deep to the shallows has occurred. Retention numbers are still one per day per person.does not continue in August and September.
Can’t free up your schedule in August? No problem! The fishing in June and July is awesome and accommodations are much easier to find. Get out here and get your lines in the water!
