September 2017


Hello {tag:firstname},



September 2017

Yes Sept- early Oct may turn out to be the BEST fall fishery in Esperanza in years.

Yes, the Coho/Silvers are inside in huge schools waiting on the rains

to move them into the many rivers and streams to spawn.

Inner Black Rock, Double Island, Mouth of Birthday Channel, Otter Island

and the north side of Centre Island are all staging areas where the Fishing

& Catching is GOOD. These fish are holding on Large schools of bait fish

which explains why we are seeing lots of humpback whales in the inlet.

Anchovies remain the top bait for Catching with Coho Specials, 3.5” Coyote,

4” Titan and Skinny “G” lure scoring BIG. Also, hoochies/cuttlefish/squid

in Glow, Flashing, Purple Haze are all working well!!

There are still plenty of Chinook/King/Spring around in the 20-25lb range.

But, quite frankly the Coho are Quick to jump the bait. Outside on the highway

remain your best bet for fish boxes full of Springs & Lings.


“Good thing come to Good People”

Frank Collin- Local Volunteer Hero & President of the Tahsis Salmon Enhancement
