Hey Cannon, just curious about the "Pinks" being plentiful in the streams with "Hatcheries", is the DFo (sic) raising "Pinks" in Hatcheries on Van Isle?

Coho Slow

Spent the last few weeks on Vancouver Island fishing the rivers and tubing off the east coast at various places from Comox to the Campbell. Stinky pinks were everywhere in the rivers and there were a few coho making an run. Chinook seemed to be in good number and last few days the chum started to make an appearance.

One of the main reasons for the trip was tales of coho caught in the sea. I blanked when tubing for coho, a few of my friends caught one or two nice coho over the two weeks, but everyone I spoke to was complaining about the lack of fish. Most suggesting that the water was still quite warm and hold the fish off shore.

Still it was a good trip with losts of fish caught.

Moonlight:alot of rivers and creeks with hatcheries do Pinks here on the E.C.V.I.most of the hatcheries are made up of volunteers.Here's a perfect example;Nile Creek in Qualicum Bay was extinct of it's Pink run,basically one man turned the whole thing around.There is a run of Pinks every year that provide a great beach fisheryand people all over the world come to fish it.I bought a piece a property on the creek 20 years ago and there was at that time a few sea-run Cutties,Dollies,and Coho.On the east coast and north Island the big run of Pinks is the even years.On the off year,the systems with no hatcheries there is only but a handful of fish that return.
