Boundary Bay: Sockeye and Crabs

  

Overview

Wave hello to our American friends! Bisected by the Canada-US border, Boundary Bay is a great place to drop crab traps in the morning then head out to fish for Sockeye all day long. Every year, millions of Sockeye return home to the Fraser River and for a short time in the summer they can be caught congregating here in large schools as they return from the ocean and prepare for the long trip upriver to their spawning grounds.
