Fishing Report June 1st:
Coho they are in Good numbers. We get two strong returns of Coho/Silvers each season. One Now & the 2nd in mid-August through September. Yes the 2nd run has bigger Coho (20+lb) fish in the run BUT the 1st run NOW is usually larger in quaintly. In fact you may be Saying "heck it's another Coho" while seeking Chinook/Spring/King!! What a nice problem!!!
DFO fishery notice released TODAY June 1, 2015 "All GOOD"
All of Esperanza Inlet - 6/1/15 to 12/31/15 you may retain four (4) Coho per day, hatchery marked or unmarked. Same with MOST of Nootka Sound with the exception of Area 25-7 which is from Friendly Cove to Maquinna Pt. there it is two (2) Coho per day 6/1/15 to 8/31/15 hatchery marked only. Then on September 1st to 12/31/15 its four (4) Coho per day hatchery marked or unmarked.
That is all Good stuff. Regulations say you can retain four (4) Salmon per day only two of which can be Chinook. Eight (8) Salmon is the possession limit only four (4) may be Chinook. So NOW you can fill out your daily salmon limit with COHO. Great FUN to catch & GREAT on the BBQ.
Chinook - lots of fish around. 14-20 is the norm for now. Limits are a daily thing. We should start seeing the larger fish as we move further into June & July. Hot Spots are off Ferrer Pt. and Beano Creek. Both are the same - fish in 75 to 85ft of water, put your lines at 60 to 70ft, fish with anything that looks like a WHITE GLOW squid and hold on, you will load up the fish box.
