FISHING IN TOTAL COMFORT

The fleet consists of four fully-equipped Grady White charter boats. These are the fastest charter boats in Vancouver giving us the capability to run to where the fish are with ease. Most of the fishing is done within 20 minutes of the docks but when you fish with us we always have the ability to run to all the daily hotspots! For smaller groups of up to four people, we use our two Grady White 23-foot Gulfstreams. These are the best fishing boats of their size on the water. The ideal layout of the Grady White maximizes deck space for comfort and fishing. The boat is equipped with the latest in fishing, navigation and safety gear.
All boats have covered cabins, plenty of seating and are plenty of space for all. For larger groups of 5+ people we use our 30-foot Grady White Marlin. Chromer’s reputation depends on offering only the finest fishing experiences BC has to offer. On our Vancouver salmon charters we’re not just hooking you up with the best guides but also with first-class experiences and these boats are the best in Vancouver, that’s a guarantee.

SALMON FISHING IN VANCOUVER

March and April is when salmon fishing in Vancouver really ramps up and we start getting more consistent fishing and generally some bigger chinook (king) salmon in local waters. Some of the best fishing during this period is from mid May to late June on the southern Gulf Islands, an area we run to on our 10 hour charters. This is historically a fantastic fishery with solid numbers of chinooks in the 10-20 pound range. From July through to September you really  can’t go wrong, Vancouver salmon fishing season is in full swing, with consistent fishing for all species of Pacific salmon,  including chinooks, cohos (silvers), pinks and sockeye. Great fishing combined with really nice weather, it’s tough to beat!  Our Vancouver salmon fishing charters are extra busy in the summer months so its a good idea to book your trip with us early.
September and October are both solid months for our local Vancouver salmon fishing areas, usually 15 minutes from our moorage. This is when the run of Capilano River chinook salmon enter the area on their return home. We often see the biggest salmon of the season during this time period and the fishing is so close to Vancouver!  For more detailed info have a look at our Vancouver Fishing Trips website.
What happens to your catch? Well, that’s easy, you take it home of course. Our guides will fillet and bag the fish, as it will obviously be fresh. You can take it like that, which is the easiest option. Most hotels are happy to store fresh or frozen fish in their freezers. If you’d like to have your fish processed then there is a seafood shop, conveniently located steps the boats, that offers full packaging services.
Vacuum packaging, freezing and boxing for transport are also options. If you’re like further processing like smoking they can do that as well. Expect a 24 hour turn around time for packaging and freezing services. Fresh or frozen sport caught fish can be brought into the United States without issue. Visit Finest At Sea for more information on getting your catch prepared to take home.

“We’re from LA and wanted the kids to have a uniquely Pacific Northwest experience so we hired Chromer Sport Fishing for a 5hr salmon fishing trip. Our guide, Gord, was amazing.
