Vancouver Salmon Fishing | Best fishing trip in Vancouver

“Thanks for the great day. I’d recommend Chromer Sport Fishing to anyone visiting Vancouver looking for a day on the water. Everything was as you said, Jay was one of the best guides we’ve ever fished with and the boat and gear were top shelf, we’ll be back!”

“In a matter of 15 minutes from Granville island we were fishing for big Chinook. In one afternoon we landed 8 Chinook, if not for our inexperience it could have been more. The guys at Chromers made sure we were taken care of and ensured it was a day we’d never forget.”

Toni – Toronto, Ontario
Fall salmon fishing in Vancouver is awesome for Chinook (king) salmon minutes from downtown Vancouver

“Hi Yos – My wife and I would like to thank you for arranging a wonderful day for us. Fishing in Vancouver was something we didn’t know would be available, so to be on a boat within 10 minutes of our hotel was really something. A very nice day was spent with your guide Jeff, we even caught this nice chinook salmon, big thumbs up!”

Kejl – Norway

BOAT INFORMATION | VANCOUVER’S FASTEST FLEET

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.

VANCOUVER SALMON SEASONS | WE OFFER YEAR ROUND CHARTERS!

We enjoy nearly year-round salmon fishing in Vancouver. Our local waters are the rearing grounds for salmon and also a primary route for salmon returning to their home rivers.  The best salmon fishing starts in mid April and extend through mid October.

Summer Fishing in Vancouver – From July through to September you really  can’t go wrong, the fishing is very consistent for a variety of salmon including chinooks, cohos (silvers), pinks and sockeye. Great fishing combined with really nice weather, it’s tough to beat!  We are very busy during the summer months so contact us early.

Fall Fishing in Vancouver – September and October are both really good months for our local salmon fishery, 15 minutes from our moorage. It is the run of Capilano River salmon that we target and some of the biggest fish of the season come during these months.

Spring Fishing in Vancouver – April and May is when fishing ramps up and some bigger chinook salmon start arriving. 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.

Winter Fishing in Vancouver – Our season kicks off in January, this is when winter chinook (king) salmon come into local waters to feed. These are juvenile fish that usually range from about 2 to 10 pounds. Vancouver fishing can be hit or miss during the winter months, but becomes increasingly consistent as we move into the Spring BOTTOM months.
