Howe Sound is in an amazing state of rebound this year, with a massive herring spawn enhancing the health of the ecosystem.This is the most successful herring spawn in more than 100 years, which has allowed for spring Chinook salmon fishing, and has attracted many pods of transient orcas into the sound. Yesterday a pod of T65A orcas were spotted in Collingwood Channel between Gambier Island and Bowen Island in the afternoon.
