The fishing report is out a little late this time but it doesn't have anything to do with the fishing! The Chinook fishing has been pretty steady at South Bank, Lighthouse Bank, Southwest Corner and Big Bank. We have been catching most of our halibut at Big Bank and anchored in a few different spots on Amphitrite bank. The Chinook have mostly been in the 12-20lb range though we have hit a few pockets of bigger fish on some of the days. The fish move around from day to day but have been fairly consistent in all 4 spots. Pictured below are pics from the last couple weeks!
The fish keep on rolling through and we have had many happy customers the past 10 days since our last report. Big Bank keeps rolling decent sized Chinook and halibut. In shore places such as Little Beach, Wya Point (closed starting August 1 for Chinook over 77cm) have been doing well, especialy early morning bites. Outside Lighthouse bank has been producing good size average fish in the high teens. Big Bank has all sizes of fish so you may have to turn away many small ones in search of the bigger fish. Below are some pics from the past 10 days!
July Chinook and Halibut fishing has been stellar and we are catching fish in multiple locations which shows how many fish are on the banks right now. Big Bank has been very consistent, the Inside and Outside Lighthouse bank and Inside South Bank are catching good numbers of Chinook. Big Bank has fish all over it right now and you can get Chinook at the north end of the Shallows or south of the Rats Nose. Halibut have been consistent in quite a few different places. Florencia Bay has been consistent as well as Wya point though both of those spots have slowed down in the last couple days. Silver Horde glow 4' spoons have been working well at both Big Bank and Lighthouse Bank. Most of the larger halibut we are getting on anchor though we are trolling up halibut as well on glow and non glow spoons and hutchies.
Below are some of the pics from the last 10 days. If you don't see your picture here please send it to us!
Chinook fishing has been good in both inshore and offshore waters. Big Bank has been consistent, Long Beach has had some decent bites and Florencia Bay has been steady. Big Bank has the biggest numbers of total fish and Chinook, Coho and Halibut fishing has been very good there the past few days. For technical fishing in close to shore, Florencia has been producing some bigger fish and some screaming runs. All sizes of spoons and glow hutchies are working at Big Bank. Halibut are being caught on the troll and on anchor.

Sometimes you have a hard time finding new words to describe what has been happening for weeks in a row. Awesome. Chinook (King) salmon fishing has been very good and we have been getting great average size fish for this time of year. Fishing has been much better than last year at this time and we are getting great weather to go with it!! Some days are good and some are just nuts. We did have slower day mixed in to keep us in check, but we have caught a lot of fish since then. We have been fishing mostly protected water lately which really helps with the scenic pictures and anyone who could feel a little queasy offshore.
Small spoons and glow hutchies have been working well in shore. We are also getting a few coho showing up as well. Halibut fishing has seen some dry spells in close to shore, but we have picked up a couple the last 2 days. Its high time you get your lines in the water here–the Chinook are just going nuts!
Below are some pics from the past week!
