Pink Salmon Back In Nanaimo

Pink Salmon At Millstone River

The pink salmon are back in Nanaimo waters a little bit later than usual but perhaps the bummer summer affected their time clocks also.

They were being taken at the mouth of the Millstone River in front of the Lions Great Bridge at Maffeo Sutton Park. The resident seal was also on hand grabbing an easy early morning snack.

You don't need a boat or a lot of flashy gear to try your hand at salmon fishing right now. A reasonably inexpensive rod and reel, a few lures, a dip net and waders if you are leaving shore. And don't forget to get your fishing license if you don't already have one, you will need a Tidal Water license with a salmon endorsement.

You can try your luck at the mouth of the Millstone River, or on the fishing dock at Swy-a-lana Lagoon or in Departure Bay where the river enters the Bay.

It is one of the surest fisheries which should insure a successful catch even for the novice angler. So get a licence, grab some gear and warm up the bar-b-cue because salmon is on the menu tonight!
