Video: Dolinsky goes fishing for sockeye salmon

I've fished in lakes throughout Minnesota - even went up to Lake-of-the-Woods once on the Canadian border - in search of walleye pike and Northerns. But fishing off the coast of Vancouver, it's all about the sockeye salmon. Fortunately for me, the local fishery is in the midst of a four-year cycle, and last week proved to be the heart of it, as the salmon are preparing to swim back upstream to their birthplace very soon. Our captain was awfully optimistic as we launched from the dock in the heart of Vancouver, near Stanley Park.
