Fall 2020 was a good year for this area...lots of fish at Deep Bay...
There are schools moving about near the Hospital and wrecks...Gartley Point and area

October 16th...A very strong tun of both Coho and Chum are in the area raising havoc with all the local fly fishers..have fun
We are seeing more fish about and Chum have been spotted...Coho will travel with Chum and also will hold in the estuary longer with cooler and windy conditions being favorable
September 1st..Only a few fish have been seen moving into the Puntledge
A disappointing year so far...only a few fish have been seen and landed even at the opposite side near the Hospital
July 30th...rumours of a few fish are bouncing around...try hehind the Hospital at high Tide and of course Riyston.Gartley
July 26th..A few fish have been landed at Spindrift and Kingfisher areas..some at Gartley Point but the high suns leave only the mornings or evenings..tides are favoarable at the moment

September 24th..it is time to watch the high tides..we have seen a few fish about, stormy weather is a good thing for this protected area
...September 8th...Still a surprisingly slow year in this stretch of beach front...although we are all hoping for a better Coho and Chum season...there are still lots of Coho being caught in deep water so all signs are good
August 27th...a very poor Pink year for most anglers in this area,lets
hope the Coho arrive in good numbers as they often do in this great area
What a great area for Sea Run Cutties lots of structure and bait about
November 3rd...this was an exceptional year again for this area...the best I have seen in 10 years..

July 15th...don't ovelook the marina for Pink Salmon...soon
May 28th...Cutthroat trout are about in good numbers..with so many creeks coming into the beach areas find one and you will likely be rewarded...release all wild fish
October 15th...well,a deep subject! Fish are about in Deep Bay,Spindrift,Royston Flats, Point Holmes all the way to Little River...so far this year the best colours again have been Chartreuse and Kelly Green..although I am using Pink Epoxy flies very successfully.
October 2nd...this area is going to see a lot of Coho this year...early indicators are showing good numbers and nice size fish
September 25th..winds situations call for early morning outings or late evenings...some fish are giving it up if you are there..try some red Coho Buggers

...October 15th...lots of fish still bouncing along the spit area of Deep Bay to Buchaneer Beach...to the north see the beaches off Royston,Spindrift,Point Holmes,even Ships Point
October 7th/2013.. lots of Chum and Coho about the estuaries of the local rivers..Spindrift,Gartley Point,The Royston Flats all have good numbers of fish that don't want to come in too close..but the River waters are coming down and this will hold these fish longer off the beaches...In this area I really like Red Coho Buggers and Kathy's Coat in a Size 6 and 8...The Spit at Deep Bay has produced well for the past several weeks.....also look at the beaches along the Ships Point penninsula
September 18th/2013..now is the time to stroll along these beaches for the bounty and plenty about..lots of Coho bouncing along the mouth of the Tsable and Courtenay Rivers.....SPindrift,Kingfisher,Argyle Road ,Comox Harbour are all good betes
August 30th..2013...it seems the constant thing about this area are the good runs of Pink Salmon not being harassed too much by fly fishers..such a great area to fish with so little pressure..the Mouth of the Tsable River has been spectacular as has the Mouth of the Courtenay /Puntleded River near the Hospital...have a safe time and enjoy these great fish..we will be seeing Coho with in weeks in this same area..
October 24th..many fish about...find the small streams and see the fish..
