Fishing Report for Sunday July 19th

The Harbour Chandler - Monday, July 20, 2015

Fishing Report for
Sunday July 19th
Fishing is a little spottier than last week, but still very good. We are still getting a nice mixed bag of different fish. 
A lot more pinks are showing up off 5-Finger Island. They are deep at the moment, around 140 feet, but should move in closer to shore soon. Kayak, belly boaters and shore fisherman should get ready for an early start to the season. 
Speaking of shore fisherman, I’m hearing excellent reports from the guys casting off rocky point. They are getting nice Chinook with Little Nibs, and Delta Half jigs. 
Right now Entrance Island is producing some nice large Chinook. Fish small green glow hootchies, and spoons at 200 feet. There are also a lot of Coho and some Pinks at Entrance too. Remember, hatchery Coho only, and they are out  there. Harbour Chandler fishing expert Dane got a nice 5 pound hatchery on Saturday.
I plan to head out tomorrow afternoon when the wind drops and do some in depth fishing research. 

Wish me luck,
Steve V
