Salmon fishing is very popular.  Chinook are our summer fish of choice and are generally available May through mid October, with the peak being early July to mid October.  Coho and chum salmon have become increasingly popular, particularly with flyfishing methods.  Spin and drift fishing are also very effective methods for chum and coho.
Pink salmon means it is time to get out (September) and really catch fish.  Pinks return to the Fraser River systems by the millions in odd numbered years (next major run is 2013, 2015, 2017, etc) and offer excellent fishing opportunities with all methods for anglers young and old, regardless of fishing experience!
