The fishing season on Canada's North West Coast starts in May with the arrival of the Chinook Salmon, also referred to as the King Salmon. The salmon spend their time here feeding in preparation for their trip to the many spawning rivers of British Columbia. In this North West region most of the salmon are headed up the Skenna or Nass Rivers. In protective waters we see some salmon reach upwards of 70 pounds. Salmon from 15 - 30 pounds are the norm in the area, any that are over that weight are classified as "Tyee" and are a prize catch for sport fishing anglers. The Chinook salmon fishing stays strong through until June and into July.
The Northern Cohos or Silvers arrive as well and have grown rapidly over the summer reaching sizes up to 18-20 pounds by September. They are excellent fighters and their acrobatics often times earn them their freedom from less skilled anglers.
Halibut fishing is strong throughout the season with larger Halibut weighing in at 240 pounds. Most Halibut are in the 15-25 pound range (chickins), which provide excellent eating - often there are many 60 pounders caught. Halibut is a highly regarded food fish and like the Flounder, adult Halibut typically have both eyes on the right side of the head. Limit 1 per day.
