Sooke Fishing Report, Oct.7

Some decent Fall fishing in Sooke this week. People are reporting catches of winter springs, coho, and chum. You can now keep 1 wild coho in Sooke waters. Plus the halibut fishing has been quite successful lately. You have to pick your days, a few good westerly blows have come through, but in between the storms, some nice glassy days. All in all, if you can find the time, it's definitely worth getting out there for a few hours.

Sooke Salmon Enhancement Society is in the Sooke River this week netting their Chinook brood stock. After a couple of disappointing days, today was a winner -- 42 Spring salmon caught, with some in the 40-50 pound range. Wow! Those are some good genes to be passing on. They also caught some 20 pound plus coho, thrown back until later in the season. This was a welcome relief, after last year only netted 12 Springs in total.

Support the SSES in their continued efforts to keep Sooke's salmon stocks healthy -- it is a completely volunteer run organization, so donations and volunteers are always needed. Great tag line "They hatch 'em, so we can catch 'em". That's a cause worth supporting!
