If you have been out and about on our waters lately chances are you have seen 0rcas,White sided Dolphins, Countless Seals and Sea Lions. I f you have had gear in the water then you have definitely seen some nice Chinook Salmon. Mark has the fish of the week(photo)seems the wonderbread lure pattern is at it again. Mark was using a 4″ Coyote in wonderbread pattern.Did you know that the biggest Chinook caught on a wonderbread coyote was 72lbs,caught at Rivers Inlet by a Powell River resident.If you do not have this lure in your tackle box get it!
This fishery has tailed off a little however still plenty of fish out there, be sure to try different areas as fish will move in and out of areas. Coho Pt has picked up a bit and Harwood is still steady but plenty of undersize Chinook. Anglers that are doing well are trying different lures and depth until they find the right mix. Also some Chinooks outside Lund Harbour and the North West tip of Grant Reefs. Thanks Mike for that info. Stillwater and Westview will produce fish also, so no need to go far if you live in these areas

The Lois lake boat launch is full of log debris however they have moved the blocks from the old launch so you should be good to go. It is a good idea to go have a look first if you plan on launching larger boats. Use caution of course because of log debris in lake. Fishing has been very good in many areas of the lake.All other lakes remain open to fishing except Powell,Goat,Inland lakes and tributaries.
