Slow to catch up on reports but we will try to get up to date in the Pender Harbour area. The winter fishing for chinook was terrific. December through April saw many fish, mostly in the teens to mid 20 pounds. This was different than past years when the feeder chinook were much smaller.
Excellent fishing through May until mid June when it started to slow a bit. Majority of fish were white and into the 20’s.
The past week the salmon are showing again, More red fish, more hatchery and many in the 20 to 30 pound range.
Prawning was slow during the commercial season but we are finding some decent catches in July.
Bottom fish are good numbers with good success for ling, yelloweye and rockfish.
