Becher Bay

Salmon fishing has been SLIM PICKINGS according to Cheanuh Marina. The best fishing has been between Aldridge Point and Beechey Head. Some small winter springs are moving into the bay and it should pick up between the breakwater and Fraser Island soon. Anchovies have provided the most consistent results and green glow teasers have produced the best. Good spoons have been Skinny G’s, Coho Killers and Coyotes with Gold/Silver the best producer.  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.

Oak Bay

Chinook fishing was FAIR in Oak Bay. The Gap and the Flats produced most of the action for springs. Mark Tessaro caught a 10¼ lb coho on Sunday near the golf course trolling an anchovy in a Bloody Nose teaser at 45 feet. 3” AP Tackleworks spoons, Wee G’s and Skinny G’s have been good spoons for trollers. Squirts will also work with Jelly fish and Electric Chairs good bets. Jiggers do best fishing near Brodie Rock using Deep Stingers and Point Wilson Darts. Halibut fishing was SLOW in this area.

Pedder Bay

Pedder Bay Marina reported SLOW fishing for coho in the strait of Juan de Fuca. The most consistent coho fishing has been out in deep water south of Church Rock and the Bedford Islands. Some feeder springs from 3 to 5 lbs have been caught close to the bottom in over 100 feet of water by Pedder Bay. Spoons have been very effective for coho with Skinny G’s, Wee G’s and AP Tackleworks spoons catching fish. The smaller spoons have been working the best. Green and glow or green and silver have been the best color combinations. 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. 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/Glow Hot Spots.

Sooke

Coho fishing has been SLOW in the strait as the run is ending. Most of the fish were caught out in the shipping lanes or near the Bluffs and Secretary Island. Spring fishing was SLOW with only small winter springs being caught. Anchovies have been the most effective bait recently. Good choices for teaser head colors are Bloody Nose, Chartreuse and Purple Haze. Spoons such as Skinny G’s, Wee G’s, Coho Killers and 4″ Coyote spoons have been good too. AP Tackleworks spoons have also worked in Lemon /Lime. If you are using hootchies or squirts, make sure it has glow white as one of the colours. Popular flasher color patterns have been with glow and moon jelly colours.
