I scratched Monday evening for salmon. Wanting to try again tomorrow. When do you think the good Hali time is tomorrow? Current table looks like 11-1 tide table looks like 7-10 ish. I have not looked at my Murray tables yet. I find the tide/current guide sometimes misleads me and I think it will slow down at a time it does not. I plan to try for salmon and hali if I get the chance.

Looking at current table, low slack is around 11:00am , I think i would rely on this more than the tide table.
good luck !

Out for night bite on the waterfront last night, put in 3 hours, nothing. Got back in to Flemming and met the creel survey guy he said he only saw one fish come in. Apparently it was a big one from Albert Head area. Pretty slow right now.

Fishing has been great in Oak Bay. First trip of the year was June 16th, Went out for 2 hours just to test the boat and all the gear for the summer fishing season. Bang was I surprised. 4 Fish on, all hatchery. Kept 2, lost one to a seal. Next trip out June 19th, Got 5 fish, Kept 4, two hatch, two wild. again in about 2 hours of fishing. Not huge for size all about 6-12 lbs but man what action. Nice to see Oak Bay producing some fish. Its probably the fastest I have ever got fish and limited out in two trips in Oak Bay ever. I have been fishing there for 32 years. I have to say I was quite impressed with the action. Will be heading to Sooke and Port Renfrew soon when weather and tides are good.
