Red Springs from the Fraser in June
Cohos from the Cap in May
Sockeye from the Fraser in July

Those are my favourites in order

All well and good. I voted for Hali's, the best on the list IMHO. However, two of the better ones are missing from your list, those being Arctic Charr, by far the BEST red-meat fish I've ever had the luxery of enjoying (in fact surpassing sockeye considerably!) and Yelloweye, which I actually prefer over halibut.

Cheers,
Nog

There are probably another hundred fish that taste amazing but they are hard to come across, I think that this is a great list of the fish that we come across everyday!!

#1 is halibut panfried in butter, garlic and a bit of sea salt. #2 is cap coho and #3 is a tie between a red snapper and a green ling.

July sockeyes are great too, but they haven't been available for sale in years. You guys aren't out there fishing for them are ya?  :o

Fraser red springs followed by sockeye/coho locally.  Hard to beat fresh ahi tuna and sable fish (alaska black cod) too for "white" flesh.  Halibut cheeks are also absolutely amazing!  Love fresh snapper and lemon sole too.  The list just goes on and on!  Any fresh fish cooked well works for me!
