Fishing Report – September 5th, 2007
Well I’m back again from another great summer on Vancouver Island. The fishing was fantastic, and the weather was great. To give you an idea of how the fishing was, my first day out we head out to big bank, and I drop a flasher and hootchie down to the bottom, and a gold spoon to 101ft. I turn around, and the spoon at 101ft. releases. The rod pops up, then slams back down to the water. A 33lb spring in the first 5 minutes of the trip, you know it’s going to be a great year!!
Excellent numbers of Springs and Halibut, and the game is to try and keep the coho off. Also got alot more Ling Cod this year which was very nice.
Around the 15th of August the big Springs really started to funnel up Barkley Sound, and we got good numbers of fish in the protected waters of Harbours Entrance and Swale Rock. Bob and Carl from Columbia Country came up and we shot a Salmon show at Harbours Entrance. Look for that to come out around April. I fished untill the 25th of August, then we worked our way home. I hope to stay next year till mid Sept.
Back home it’s time to hit the Walleye on the Columbia River. I start this week. Also the flyfishing will be great on the river as well. Hoppers will be a trout favorite at this time of year.
Only a month away from primetime Gerrard fishing on Kootenay Lake. Time to start planning a trophy rainbow trip for the fall and winter.
