If you can find something than early August is good.

I used to work and help manage the Port Credit weigh in station.

I would say it depends on what you want.

Chrome Chinook are great in July and early August. Staging Salmon are bigger and put on the feed bag but are darker in colour mid August and onward.

For me take the Crome Chinooks and mixed bag of Coho and Steelhead.

For me it's always on from April till end of October

You need to decide your preferred species first, then go from there

also, the spring fishing April untill end of June can produce the best numbers of chrome colored salmon and plenty of big guys as well and the equipment use is generally lighter, so much easier for a 7 year old

Once July to September fishery kicks in, ya, bigger fish, but darker and tactics change as they are deeper, so wire dipseys and wire board presentations and more use of flashers and flies or meat

also have to contend with the nasty spiny water flea from time to time

Fall sees staging salmon come back in shallow and readily available but also sees quite a bit of unstable weather from time to time

In the end, every month is good and has it's own unique style of species available

I have been at this for more than 24 years and can finish with this line....

If you have never chartered, Just do it. but you better book soon

be happy to take you out, but I don't know what side of the lake you want to try
