Winter Harbour BC Fishing Report
By Greg Vance, The Outpost at Winter Harbour | Last updated: April 14th, 2013
It has been a weird herring spawn in Winter Harbour this year! After a significant spawn about two weeks ago, the herring came back in big numbers over the last few days and are spawning heavily again. This is turning the Harbour water into all shades of emerald green. It appears to be keeping a fair amount of transient and feeder fish around.
The beautiful string of high pressure weather gave guys a couple of nice fishing windows over the last week, and it seems the early Columbia springs are still here in pretty good numbers. Some very nice fish are coming in. Just like last year, we are seeing a consistent lingcod and hali bite on the flats inside Cains Island lighthouse in very shallow water. Fun stuff! Things are setting up for another great season up here.
