Lower Mainland: Shore Casting for Pink Salmon

  

Overview

Gone Fishin. Fish for an hour, or for the whole day. Stay close to the city, and cast from the shore right within the Georgia Strait Basin, as Pink Salmon make their return to our local rivers on their way to their spawning grounds. Eating voraciously in preparation for spawning, Pinks will readily take a wide variety of flies and lures.
