The Esquimalt Anglers are active in Coho enhancement on Craigflower Creek and operate a counting fence.
In the fall adult Coho are captured and counted and returned over the fence. To track our enhancement activities, we started tagging fry in 1997.
In order to assist with the acquisition of salmon eggs for Goldstream Hatchery, members of the club assist with the egg take at the Nitnat Hatchery.
In exchange, we receive Nitnat Chinook eggs which are reared at the Goldstream hatchery and then released in Esquimalt Harbour and it gives us the best summer Chinook fishing off the Victoria waterfront in decades.
