Sooke Fishing Report, August 13

Salmon fishing in Sooke has been hot and cold in the past few weeks, but appears to have heated up in the last couple of days. Reports are coming in of good bite times, with lots of fish being caught.

Neil from Salty Towers reports plenty of action from Possession Point down to Muir Creek, pictured with a bunch of nice Springs caught with Mark Price and gang.

Some recent reports from the Sportsfishingbc forum:

Aug 5: Wolf: today saw a few fish caught, got mine down deeper today at 90 ft, the green/blue chrome head seems to be hot right now.

Aug 9: Tips up: Had a good day today. 26lb, 21 lb and 19 lb. Lost 2 others on a double header. Good bite around 11:00.

Aug 10: poe (Ian Husband): As I was coming in there were 4 others with fish all in the 20'sand 30's just coming seems to be getting hot in the Sooke area. [Ian caught this beauty at Otter Point]

Aug 10: chris73: It probably doesn't get any better this year anymore in Sooke. And the weather cooperates now too. 4 salmon bites (countless dogfish), 3 hooked, 2 landed: 20# and 17#, trap between 70 and 85'.

Aug 10: Luna: landed a 31,25, and 23# evening off Possession Point on a red hot spot and blue green chrome head, 6.5 ft leader at 78 ft.

Aug 11: abl: Trap shack was on fire this morning. 23#,28#, lost another. lots of fish being taken. water was like glass out there.
