Nanaimo Hering Spawn

Fishing Department - Friday, March 18, 2016

Nanaimo Herring Spawn


We are having a great herring spawn in Nanaimo this year. Yesterday I loaded up in Hammond Bay, and right now (March 18th) Departure Bay is  turning white. We will have a great salmon year with all the herring hatching in a month.

Get your herring jigs and head to the beach. I got 8 gallons in 20mins last night. Bait for the year, kippers, and best of all pan fried herring eggs on toast. Mmmmmm tasty
