Becher Bay

Salmon fishing had been GOOD but slower on the weekend after last week’s rain. Lots of springs from 10 – 26 lbs were caught this past week. The most productive area for numbers of fish has been Aldridge Point but the Trap Shack has produced the heaviest fish. Limits of pink salmon are being caught from Beechey Head and the Trap Shack on the flood tides. They are also being caught further out in the strait near the 3rd tide line. Chris Arnott caught the big one this past week, a 25 lb 9 oz near the Trap Shack .Chris is now #3 on our leader board. Anglers were mostly using pink squirts and spoons for pink salmon lures. Anchovies are now the most popular bait and good colours for teaser heads were Glow Chart, Mint Pearl and Bloody Nose. Good spoons for chinooks have been Skinny G’s, Coho Killers and Coyotes with green in the colour mix.  Needlefish hootchies in White, Glow/Green and Purple Haze are the top choices in plastic baits. The GIBBS Highliner Guide Series Outfitters, the Bon Chovy, and Gold Fever Hot Spot flashers had been working well. Other anglers that we know of fishing here were out for halibut and lingcod. Halibut fishing was GOOD this past week and some nice Lingcod were caught. Crabbing has been EXCELLENT.

Oak Bay

Chinook fishing was SLOW in Oak Bay. Trollers were fishing for salmon by bottom bouncing spoons in 90 – 120 feet of water and the jiggers were working the same depths. Most of the action occurred near Brodie Rock. A few pinks were caught on the east side of Discovery Island. Coho killers, Wee G’s and AP Tackleworks Sandlance spoons have been the spoons of choice for trollers. Squirts will also work with Jelly fish and Electric Chairs good bets. Jiggers had been having great success near Brodie Rock using Deep Stingers and Point Wilson Darts. Halibut fishing was GOOD in this area.

Pedder Bay

Pedder Bay Marina reported salmon fishing has been EXCELLENT in Pedder Bay and from Whirl Bay to the Bedford Islands. Limit catches of pink salmon are coming in from the Race and the tide lines near the shipping lanes on the flood tides. Anchovies and herring were the best baits for salmon this past week. Good choices for teaser head colors were Glow Chart, UV Green and Bloody Nose. Spoons have also been very effective with Skinny G’s, Wee G’s and AP Tackleworks spoons catching fish. The smaller 3” spoons have been working the best. Green and glow or green and gold have been the best color combinations. Hootchies and squirts were working with Pink, Purple Haze or UV Green good color choices.  Flashers that are popular include the Guide Series Madi, Bon Chovy Green/Silver Hot Spots. Halibut fishing was FAIR on the weekend.
