Sooke coho update, Oct 1

The Area 20 regulations have been updated as of October 1st, Sooke anglers can keep 4 coho, one of which can be 1 wild. This will be a relief, as some anglers were reporting ten-to-one wild to hatchery coho, so you have to catch a lot of salmon before you can keep one.

Here's a photo of Jerrod (Smiley66), releasing a nice wild coho last week ... that would have been dinner as of October 1st. :-)

The coho fishing is reported to be excellent. At Salty Towers, all of the boats yesterday came back with their limit of coho, in the 10-14 lb range. They were fishing from the Sooke harbour mouth west, in 200-300 feet of water, at 70-120 foot depths. These aggressive coho aren't picky, apparently biting on anchovies, spoons, or hootchies.

Now's the time to get out there, and have some fishing fun!
