Large Salmon Returns 2014
Large Salmon Returns are predicted for the West Coast of Vancouver Island. Hugh numbers of Sockeye, Chinook and Coho are expected to be swimming past our favorite fishing holes on Swiftsure Bank. Hopefully we will have a nice long sports fishing Sockeye opening. Should be great fishing this summer 2014. Book your trip today!
Phenomenal Salmon, Sockeye, Chinook and Coho, returns are predicted by fisheries and all the experts.The first interesting one is a prediction of huge returns of Chinook salmon to the Columbia River system. These are our early spring salmon making June the incredible fishing month it is. Columbia salmon can be sizable and are football shaped with lots of 4 year fish getting their bellies full for the push up that huge river system.
In our annual contest "Biggest Salmon" the winners of a free trip have reeled in Chinook Salmon from the Columbia River in June for the last two years.
On top of that it looks like we are going to have a chance to fish for Sockeye this year. Predictions are for record breaking returns of Fraser River Sockeye this 2014 fishing season. Some of you may remember the last sports caught Sockeye opening and the high numbers of salmon caught.
Best of all is the huge concentrations of Coho salmon making their way here to their old feeding grounds. DFO's forecast of Coho returns on the west coast of Vancouver is listed as abundant.
All this adds up to make the 2014 sports fishing season an action packed year with lots of fun and fish. Starting in June, the month to try for Halibut & Chinook, fishing will be hot all summer. Halibut size limits are larger and so far Halibut fishing is great already. Our "Biggest Halibut" winners have also planned their fishing vacations in June.
