Late August to Late September Port Hardy Salt water Fishing report

The Chinook Fishing was solid right into early September, then things became a bit spotty into mid september. That being said, my guest on september 18th, played and released many Chinook.

The coho fishing was great during mid season but September numbers seemed down, perhaps due to the rain locally. Numbers in the river seem great.

The best baits this year into the late season were white spoons in 3-4 inch, white hootchie and anchovies. The fish seemed to be shallower in 45 to 65 feet of water generally.

Halibut closed early this year, so we focused on lingcod and found some beauties in water from 65 to 300ft.
