spawning salmon

Hey guys and gals, Greg the Barber here..
So what did you think of the 2017 fishin’ season ?

It Frickin’ sucked…..here’s my deal…..what I think happened ?

I know, blame it on Donald Trump……nope, that ain’t gonna work….

Went fishing mid January lots of fish around,  bites ya….Feb. not to bad….
water temp.. 48.2 degrees…..fish finder ringing for fish…..that’s cool….and I mean
that’s cool……

So I get my new Lic. Mar 31/17 …..should really be April 1st…..but we won’t touch that….
Well not right now…..

Dam….cool, ready now ….Chinook, have been alright..
No Coho, way to early…But its a Pinks
year…..canning, smoking….etc…I’m ready…….major year  !….two years ago….

May 01/17….water temp up…..
Springs…hoping for Pinks…

Slow start…
June 01/17 ….water temp up again….
Still slow….49.5

July 01/17
WTF…..water temp way up…….51.2

Pinks should be showing  Port Renfrew …Otter Point,  Sooke…should be schooling
to W. Head….Pedder Bay…Albert Head to Esq…Harbour…
40 FT…to 70…

Victroia Waterfront..some Gulf Islands to Discover Island
….heard about a split on pinks top of Island…
2 year run…outside island run 2017…. in inside island run 2018…..
Aug 01/17
WWTF   this is a pinks year ?

Sept. 01/17
We hit a high of 55.80 degrees

Oct. 01/17
I guess their not coming…..not in the numbers of two years ….Why ….?

So this is what happens,
The salmon follow bait….mammals follow the salmon..
..the mammals attract the Orcas…the Ocras that
follow/feed on salmon…are feeding in cooler water…
If there is a break in the chain…..the chain falls apart….

Oh the bait….think about it……..

These are true numbers….

Temp….49.2
