Fishing Report: August 23, 2016

Here come the Coho! We’re finding a lot of Olympic-medal worthy Coho swimming around the island right now, in addition to the many Chinook.

This is turning out to be one of our better years for big Coho, as well as a strong season for Chinook. The silvers are averaging around 10-pounds, and we’ve seen some very large-looking 15+ pounders. The largest Chinook retained so far this trip is 32-pounds. Several other Tyees have been released.

The Graham Island shoreline has been better on the afternoon ebb tide. Seath Point has been the best spot for the past few days, although spots all the way west to Cape Knox have been producing.

Coho are being found in better numbers from Cohoe Point up towards Langara Rocks, mostly near shore but offshore seems to be consistent, too.

Springs and Coho were found on the deeper side at the Rocks this morning. That is the go-to spot this time of year, where we always seem to find something down in the 40-80 pull range.

Andrews Point continues to be the happy place for both tides and is a good bet to stick-and-stay for the day if you don’t mind waiting for the next wave of fish to arrive.

Some anglers are getting their salmon here on the shallow side and others are doing well around 30-50 pulls. That means fish are spread out through the water column looking for bait.

The winds have dropped today, opening up the island. Some persistent westerlies had been keeping us off the west side for much of the past two weeks, but we should see some nice bottom come in from there today.

And Al’s halibut hole, offshore of Egeria Bay, continues to yield lots of chicken-size halibut — best on the flood tide.

Humpback whales can still be seen all around the Island, feeding on the needlefish and herring that continue to gather in huge numbers in our waters.
