Point Grey

Point Grey, Fraser Banana

The Fraser Banana provides very good fishing for Chinook all year round with the bigger fish being caught between June and October when they start heading up the Fraser River. The only boat launchs in this area are on the Fraser River and you have to drive out there. The closest boat launch is a city run free launch near Vancouver airport and can support boats of all sizes at all tides. The launch is free but parking has a fee of $12 a day.

How to get there

To get to this launch from highway 99, head towards Vancouver Airport. When you get onto the Airport Island make a right onto Templeton Street. Follow this to McDonald Road and make a right, the launch is at the end of this road.

August 4, 2013

Fished out of Point Grey from 9am to 5pm with little success. Threw out the crab traps right on the mouth of the river and used Salmon parts from the Pinks caught the day before in one trap and Chicken in the other. It was really windy out and the water was white capping so we stayed fairly close to shore and trolled over towards the harbour where the waves were alot less violent. Trolled Hootchies and Spoons with only a couple bites, and caught a flownder. When we headed back to our traps the one with Salmon in it was loaded up with 10 crabs, 4 keepers and the one with Chicken had 2 small crabs.

Fishing Derby Septmeber 7, 2013

There were a dozen boats out fishing in this fishing derby hosted by Foxcroft Tile. There were alot of Pinks caught, a few Sockeyes, and a few undersized Chinooks. Most of the boats were fishing off bell bouy working towards T10, while a couple stayed over near the Capilano Mouth. I personally fished over at bell bouy to T10 but unfortunatly got skunked for the first time on the ocean since May. The only thing I caught were a couple six inch frys and a Salmon Shark which was pretty cool since Ive never caught one before. The fish that won the derby was a 5 pound Pink Salmon, with second and third place being just under that.

Thats a spiny dog fish pal (also known as mud shark). Salmon sharks are completely different...almost look like a mini great white.

Great website!!!

Yea it is, I've seen them out there on calm days but be careful and check the marine forecast before you head out.
