i was there a few days ago.  I tried fishing off the rocks in those little bays (beaches), but no luck.  I was using shirmp, around 6 o clock, snagged lots =(   Anyone know of any good spots in that area?

That whole are is very dependent on what tide is happening-what's decent on a high might be the pits on a low.

I was cycling by there Sunday and had a good look around for the first time in a while-I should spend more time out there-Thanks for giving me an idea.

If you have a palm pilot, you can down load an interesting little tool called "Tide Tool".  It gives accurate tides for almost anywhere.  I was a little skeptical until I tried it.  Type "tide tool" in google and find it. ;D

Tide info:

http://www.dairiki.org/tides/monthly.php/van

Add about 30 minutes or so to those times to guesstimate the times for Garry Point Park. Pay attention to the tide height as well.

When you're fishing those bays, either float fish or lure fish, that will keep your rigs away from the snags. At a moment, float fish would be better as water clarity is not great.

Later on the year, when clarity improves, you'll have a lot more fun spin fishing.

In September, October, when salmon fisheries are open, you'll be able to catch the odd coho, chum from those bays.

Not exactly an exotic location, but a pretty nice place to fish for a few hours without driving so far. :)

some  of the fish, like squawfish tend to bite veryy lightly (from my experience). what types of floats will work? All i really have are salmon floats, but i havent had success with them for squaws and chubs

Not necessary Chum Man. Pikeminnow (aka squawfish) does not mess around with the bait. The small juvenile ones are peckers of course, but there isn't a need to bother with those.

What you should be looking for, in July and August, are the 2 feet+ pikeminnows that roam around in the bays. 8) Small spinners, spoons will guarantee you to hit those, especially during a high tide that coincides with early morning. :)

On another note, they're netting smelts by the bucket down there during high tide at a moment. :o
