2014 Chinook Forecast, Fishing Resorts West Coast Vancouver

Postby SalmonEye » Mon Jan 06, 2014 5:59 pm

The forecast for the 2014 Columbia River return may be higher than it was for 2013. In 2013 the Bonneville Dam estimated more than 1.1 million Chinook went through which is highest number recorded since the Dam started recording in 1938! Normal years have seen returns in the 500,000 to 800,000 mark the past decade, so this is a huge jump. Forecasting is a hard game and there are many variables, but right now we are expecting a very strong run again. This means we will have great Chinook fishing through June and July with lots of Columbia Chinook around Ucluelet.

The Chinook return forecasted for Southern BC rivers and the Fraser River are good with 40-45,000 Chinook expected for the local Stamp/Somass system. This means we should have a great August and early September fishing for Chinook in the 15-40lb range with the odd 50lb plus Chinook. The Canadian forecast is often quite conservative, so we are looking forward to a good August which means the reels will be screaming and there will be lots of high fives!

If you are looking for a fishing resort in BC, check out our fishing packages that are set up very similar to a fishing resort. You can stay at a four-star resort, or our less expensive options while fishing with us. You may also want to check out our past fishing reports!
For everyone going to the west coast make sure you check out for helpful info on beaches, trails, restaurants and more.
