Fishing Report: August 19, 2016

Posted on: Aug 19th, 2016

This past week featured the best combination of weather and fishing this season, with lots of great action taking place under sunny skies.

Fishing for Chinook is as strong as it’s been all season, and we got a nice bump of Coho this trip — a large school showed up offshore of McPherson Point, and the numbers now seem higher in most areas.

Andrews Point continues to be the sweet spot, as it has been the past couple of weeks, producing consistently on both tides.

The morning floods here this week were especially hot, and the clear skies made for some epic sunrise fishing. Regular depths here have been most effective, between 15-25 pulls, but some Chinook have also been found deeper offshore.

The flood tides have been keeping the east side of Langara well-stocked with salmon, so anywhere from Andrews down to Egeria Bay, and farther south to the Bluffs, is a good bet on the tail end of the floods.

The drift from Langara Rocks around to McPherson Point, on the start of the flood, is also producing well.

Graham Island has been better on the ebb tide, with the Jalun River, Gunia, Boulder and Seath Points all yielding some nice salmon. Not as much coming from Bruin Bay and Chanal Reef this trip, but Cape Knox has been holding some larger Chinook lately.

The Jalun has been good on both tides near shore. There’s also a spot farther offshore, which seems to be the middle of nowhere, which is a popular spot sometimes for both Chinook and Coho, and it’s producing right now.

A SW swell continues to make the west side a bit lumpy, but the top of the island has been good for bottom fishing, with lots of Halibut and Lingcod being found.

The usual spots off the east side of Langara continue to hold some nice chicken-size Halibut. One of these spots, Al’s Halibut Hole, yielded a 123cm Halibut (50+ pounds) this week — a rare catch for a spot that typically holds Halibut in the 10-20 pound range.

The waters around Langara continue to hold massive numbers of needlefish and herring, keeping the salmon and Humpback whales well fed, and keeping our guests very busy — on both the rods and cameras.
