Spring Charter Fishing Report for Vancouver and Sidney

April is one of the better months of the year for numbers of chinook salmon in Vancouver waters.   You have to read the regulations carefully as some areas go to catch and release only for chinook salmon and some areas go to no fishing for chinook.  We have some good opportunities to get out on the water for catch and release options for chinook salmon in Vancouver during the months of April and May.    From our Sidney location, we are open to the retention of hatchery chinook in most of the areas we fish.   If you are looking at keeping salmon, please ask us about our Sidney fishing trips!

Things are now in transition as chinook salmon start to change their feeding patterns in the Salish Sea.   There will be fish still in the normal winter fishing areas, but offshore areas in the Gulf Island's start to perk up with more and more baitfish congregating offshore to feed on planktkon and krill.   In the Sidney area, most fish will still be pretty close to bottom as the area is not subject to the same kind of plankton blooms.

As mentioned, our Sidney location is open to chinook retention this spring!!   It is one of the few areas in Southern BC that is open for chinook retention.   In addition to our day charters, we also have some great multi day packages!   Details here...     www.bonchovy.com/fishingreports/1709706928.html

In Vancouver and Sidney, April is a great month for prawning and crabbing!!   We can add this to a charter.   Just ask us about options!

Tight lines and see you on the water!
