Fishing Report for March 27, 2018

Tuesday, March 27 2018

Chinook fishing is still slow on almost all fronts. The single success story came from Dane at the Chandler, that of a boat fishing in 300 feet of water off the Fingers, and they caught three Chinook at 120 to 180 on the downriggers. Interestingly, Vancouver Harbour is hot. Bon Chovy came in with a nice brace of five Chinook on March 19th. Apparently the Harbour is loaded with herring, partially from artificial spawning enhancement. The Chinook move constantly this time of year following the herring. Soon, the offshore fishery should start in the 600 to 800 foot depths, as the Chinook start to migrate.

Prawning seems to have slowed, also. This is probably a result of the herring spawning, too, but I do not know the symbiotic relationship between these events.

Good fishing!
