Special Notes: Late May usually marks the beginning of the Chinook migrations with peak sport fishing occurring in August, Coho appear in late June with angling starting in earnest in July. The best time to intercept large northerns is from early September through October. During odd years Pink salmon runs are strong and are best fished during late July through to mid-September. Sockeye are showing in small numbers by mid-June. Sport fishing picks up in July and August and then will start tapering off by early September. Look for Chum salmon to show during the month of August. Fishing for Chum will continue on through to October. April and May are Halibut months with some tipping the scales up to 250+ lbs. Rockfish are excellent throughout these waters as well as Lingcod when in season. (See BC Fish Species)
