June 8 Sooke Fishing Report

The fishing around Sooke seems to have slowed for big salmon, but the good news is there are plenty of smaller ones around.

Luke from vipfishing had a fantastic morning of fishing today at Secretary Island, catching 10 hachery coho salmon. He said it was like fishing for pink salmon, couldn't keep them off the gear, lots of fun. He was using green and white hootchies dipped in his anchovy box for scent and a red flasher at a depth of 40-50 feet. (and for the believers in electricity and fishing....he had the black box set to 650) He said it has been best in the mornings, slower in the afternoon.

Neil from Salty Towers Oceanfront Resort has also had some luck with smaller chinook salmon to 8 pounds and coho. He also reports the crabbing is quite good in Sooke Harbour, lots of big tasty Dungeness.

New Fishing Regulations released for Sooke waters: hatchery coho are now open, and chinook must be between 45-67cm wild or hatchery only above 67cm. Starting June 19, anglers can keep one chinook over 67cm (wild or hatchery) and one smaller.

Good luck out there!


* UPDATE Fraser River Chinook: Subareas 19-1 to 19-4, 20-5 and a portion of 20-4 from a point at the mouth of Jordan River: Effective June 3rd until Jun 18th, 2010 the daily limit is two (2) Chinook Salmon per day which may be wild or hatchery marked between the size limit of 45 cm and 67 cm or hatchery marked only Chinook over 67 cm in length.

Then effective June 19 until July 15, 2010 the daily limit is two (2) Chinook Salmon per day of which only one (1) Chinook may be greater than 67 cm. The minimum size limit in these areas is 45 cm.
