Winter Fishing in Victoria and Sooke

Too many people think the fishing season ends September 1st.  The salmon fishing in winter can be really good in the waters between Sooke and Victoria.  There are resident "feeder" chinook salmon  that are here year-round.  They hunt for their needlefish and other bait right off the bottom, so a troll 10' above the bottom with a hootchie or spoon can yield great results. 120-150' is most common.  Though the schools move around, sometimes hanging around Sooke's bluffs or the trailer park, other times down toward Oak Bay, so you have to look for them.  It's fishing, not all catching!  The other surprising thing about winter fishing is that a sunny but low temp winter day with no wind can actually be warmer than those bone chilling damp foggy August days - seriously!  Here's a fine winter spring for a grateful guest of No Bananas Fishing Charters.   Check out the other Sooke and Victoria fishing guides for your winter fishing adventure.
