Though September marks the time of year when most anglers in Prince Rupert pull their boats out of the water and reminisce of the seasons catches, anxiously awaiting the next May when the plentiful runs of Chinooks will return to the area, There are still fish to be caught! Winter chinooks, or “feeder springs” are in the area year round and often in the winter months can be found right in or close to the Prince Rupert Harbour. These fish are generally smaller than the migratory spawners that come through in May-Sept but average 10-20 pounds and do sometimes tip the scales over 30. What they lack in size they make up in fight and are definitely some of the tastiest salmon you will ever put on your plate.
Weather permitting, halibut fishing can also be quite good through the winter, and with new regulations in place for this 2013 season, these fish will remain open to sport fishing through until December 31 2013.
Crabbing is excellent in the Fall and Winter months, and we will throw the traps down on our way out to drop the lines for salmon or halibut.
