Charlie with a big feeder chinook!
The last few weeks of July were slower for chinook compared to last summer, but It looks like a new push of chinook are here now though!
Limits of good size springs were taken yesterday at Bates Beach(Kitty Coleman), and the Campbell River Hump produced some nice ones also.
Last week Grants Reef was full of good size "feeder" springs,we limited out with fish up to 22 pounds and released many 10-15 pounders.There is a mix of small and large herring around now, so changing around the gear is a good idea!Small spoons have worked well as have large Tubby plugs.
Lots of coho around,so the big plugs and longer leaders on your hootchy's will help keep them off if you just want to target chinook...
