We have the official “2016 West Coast Vancouver Island (WCVI) Chinook Forecast” from DFO.
Thank You to Diana Dobson South Coast Assessment Salmon Team
It is ALL GOOD. The run size (numbers) are 50% larger than any yr. since 2000. The Great part about the report is that 90% of the Springs/Kings are 4 and 5 year old fish which means we will be seeing a lot more Tyees on the cleaning tables this season. They are already here on the Highway & will be inside the Inlet and Sound sooner than normal.
The Following Pictures have all been taken in the past wk.
Interestingly we have had some Big tides & some Wind & Barometer events BUT outside of that Fishing/Catching has been very GOOD!!!
