September Sooke Fishing

As we near the official end of summer, we are starting to feel it, with cool mornings and a little rain.  But the fishing is still quite good! 

For salmon, there are still some chinook/springs around, but they are getting less frequent and a little dark, as they prepare to head up river to spawn.  One report earlier this week had a local angler losing a 40 pounder right at the boat this week, unfortunately unable to net it solo!  (though the one that got away always seems bigger and bigger as your mind plays tricks on you)    Most of the attention is on the coho salmon lately.  You can presently keep 2 hatchery coho, and it seems that some days there's lots around and others it is all wild coho that have to be released.  Please release them gently, so they can survive and spawn lots more. 

Local anglers are turning their attention to halibut.  Luke from VIP Fishing Charters sent in this photo of a great day "somewhere west".  That's some nice white gold there ... a fish feast for sure.  Reports of nice halibut caught right outside Sooke harbourmouth and then in all the usual hotspots.....keep an eye on the tides and give it a shot.

Bundle up and get out there ... lots of fishing to be had before the monsoon season hits!

September Fishing is Good Fishing

Fishing continues to be excellent !  Nice weather and a steady stream of Chinooks are coming into the docks.  An abundance of Chinook in teens and twenty range are coming in as well as the occasional large ones up to 40 lbs.  There are a few pinks around still but the bulk appear to have moved on making it easier to target the Chinooks without going through large amounts of bait.   A few coho are showing up and are beginning to get into the low teens for size, although only the hatchery coho can be kept.

With a bit of rain and some salmon heading up stream soon this should also mean better and better halibut fishing as well throughout September.
