September 12, 2013 Fishing Report - Vancouver Island
Fishing Report Sept 12, 2013

September weather has been great making fishing that much more enjoyable. Coho fishing in Barkley Sound has been very good for the returning Coho to local rivers. Coho are running from 5 to 12 lbs and have been providing some nice scraps. They are biting on 3-3.5 inch Silver horde and Coyote spoons from 20-70 ft down. Watch the bait balls on the sounder and you will likely get them around the bait. Chrow and Alley Rock have been good and are nice and close to the harbour.

Off-shore fishing has been good on Big Bank for Coho, smaller feeding Chinook and Halibut. They weather has been very nice, but since Coho fishing has been so good, many opt for the closer option. You are allowed 4 Coho per person in Barkley Sound and right now that seems to be a good option.

Now is the time to book for 2014. Stay tuned for our fishing forecast. It should be a good year coming up for returning Chinook salmon and we are excited!
