Some great weather has allowed for anglers to get out for Sooke salmon fishing, and they have been rewarded with nice winter chinooks.

Fred Kearan of Sooke trolled up a 10.9 lbs spring out front of the harbour mouth on Dec. 21, with his gear at 130 feet on the downrigger. He was trolling a Gibbs Trailhead spoon behind a glow white flasher.

Sooke Boxing Day Chinook derby was expected to draw a larger than usual crowd with light winds predicted. The Sooke Food Bank and Salmon Enhancement efforts in Sooke will be the real winners as organizers of the derby expect to donate fresh salmon fillets and hundreds of dollars to these charities.
