July 30 Sooke Fishing Report

Here's a picture of Sooke's first 50 pounder of the year, (photo submitted to the Sooke News-Mirror). "Patrick from Washington State had 50.4 reasons to smile after hauling in this huge salmon on Sunday morning. "

Only days after opening, sockeye fishing in Sooke waters will close once again, as of July 30 9 pm. Apparently this opening was to coincide with a short commercial opening. We heard of only report of sockeye caught on Tuesday, hopefully more lucky anglers will find their way into some today before it closes.

A few reports of springs caught this week on SportfishingBC. Tuesday was a rainy day in Sooke, and about the first time in what seems like weeks that it was calm midday.

This morning, a few reports of fishermen chasing sockeye with no success, but heard of a few medium size springs caught along the way, off Secretary Island.

A look at the hook book

Eldon Smith reminds anglers that Sockeye, since Saturday, are fair game, up to four a day. You’re invited to check the posting at the Crab Shack or the fisheries website at for details.
