HAPPY SPRING TO ALL! We have been fortunate to have a really good winter fishery going on in Howe Sound. The herring spawn in the North of the sound and around the West side of Bowen Island has kept the springs around and feeding generously on the bait of abundance. This time of year Chinook salmon can grow up to 1cm per month as they feed around the islands, so a fish that is 10lbs, will be 11 or 12lbs in a few weeks! As the end of March approached Hole in the Wall was performing really well for Chinook salmon with many being landed. Spoons seemed to work the best but anchovies were close in line.
As we move more into spring we will fish the following areas
- Hutt Island and Tunstall Bay
- Defence Islands
- The Hole in the Wall
- South end of Bowen Island
How are we fishing for Springs?
Trolling with spoons, hootchies, or bait
How deep are the fish?
What else are we doing out there?
Prawning! This is the best time of year to Prawn fish – through until May.
