Winter salmon fishing in BC I recall my first winter excursion aboard the Oracle, a cozy Port Alberni trawler. We stopped for a crab lunch that went straight from the trap to the pot on the stove. Enjoying a fresh crab dinner with friends in the middle of a quiet inlet surrounded by snow capped mountains, wishing everyone could experience the moment.
Typically sockeye fishing is thriving by the third week of June and lasting into July. The sockeye season is beginning early and we have a great sockeye prediction and sockeye fishing as China Creek has another great potential this year.
Sockeye tip - Add glitter sparkles to your lure and you will catch more sockeye !
The definition of hoochie is a lady in an inappropriately flashy tight dress.
Its like the cover of the Rolling Stone of Vancouver Island fishing. We are featured on the cover of Island Angler June edition.
With the adventurous spirit we keep improving our techniques and offering the West Coast experience on the Oracle.
Port Alberni Sockeye fishing has begun in Port Alberni with the First Nations netting sockeye in the Somas River. Its a typical west coast picture of native sockeye fishing with nets and boats everywhere you look. Hub City Fisheries has parked a vessel for loading the fresh sockeye at the Clutesi Haven Marina dock.
We are extending our early bird booking special this year until May 15th for multi day charters. Our warm winter means better fishing. Our average temperature for this time of year is 11.5 degrees Celsius. The lack of snow in the surrounding mountains this year means the sockeye will school in the inlets longer waiting for rains to fall.
This is a good year to take your fishing vacation in British Columbia. Sockeye fishing has a strong forecast again this year and the migration has already begun. Take advantage of the early booking specials.
