Best Places to See Salmon Spawning near Vancouver, British Columbia

Fall on British Columbia’s south coast means many things … cooler days, changing leaves, visits to pumpkin fields and corn mazes, but my favourite fall activity is watching the phenomenon that is Pacific Salmon spawning.

British Columbia is home to five species of salmon, Spring (or Chinook), Coho, Sockeye, Pink and Chum, and arguably, there is nothing more epic than the voyage these fish take to return to their spawning grounds. Many travel over thousands of kilometres, guided primarily by smell as they return to their birthplaces. Read more…

Fishing Furry Creek for Pink Salmon

I have been hooked on fishing since a young age, when I use to fish the creeks and oceans of Cornwall, England. Now I live and work in Canada and fish annually for salmon, unfortunately as work permits.

Every two years in the odd year (2013, 2015 etc.) the Pink salmon phenomenon occurs in Southern BC. Large numbers of Pinks (as they are affectionately known) approximately 10 million, or Humpies as they are called by some as the males grow a hump on the back, return to the rivers such as the Fraser and smaller tidal rivers such as the Squamish to spawn.  These salmon swim in large schools and are relatively easy to catch from the shore by all ages. They generally range in size from 3 to 7 lbs and put up a reasonable fight on light tackle. Read more…
