Sooke Fishing Report July 18

Great fishing in Sooke lately.   Lots of complaining from local anglers about too many coho and pinks stealing all the bait when targeting big chinook.  All in all, catching too many salmon is a good problem to have!  Head out into the deep water, put on some artificial gear (spoons, hootchies, baitrix, coho killer), and enjoy the action.  Try using no flasher or a smaller flasher and lighter gear, so you can feel the fish....turn off the motor, loosen the drag, let that fish swim a bit.....makes for a lot of fun. 

For those chasing the big spring salmon, it can be a challenge to find them when the coho and pinks are in thick. But they are there.  Check out this fish of a lifetime .... 50.2 pounds caught at Sheringham.  Posted to sportfishingbc.com by yo mama, addicted, and rambo.  Well done boys!

July Sooke Fishing

"Discus" with a 34lb caught at Sheringham...1st ever in Sooke! (from Sportsfishingbc.com forum)
Summer is here and the fishing around Sooke is great.   There are some nice springs being caught at Possession and Otter, from 10-25 pounds.  Regs only allow keeping a wild chinook if less than 85cm or if hatchery born.  West of Sheringham, you can keep a wild salmon larger than 85cm. 

The coho salmon and the pink salmon are also here.  Once you get into a school of them, it is non stop action, double headers.  It can be hit and miss though, one day you can't keep them off, next day the school is somewhere else.  When you find the school, stick with them.  You can keep 2 hatchery coho, and there seems to be quite a few mixed in.   The pink salmon fishing will be getting hot and heavy soon. 

Sooke is in its usual summer weather pattern, calm and foggy in the morning, sunny and windy in the afternoons.

Get out there and catch some fish!
