Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: June 23, 2017

OUTLOOK  Well summer is officially here and it looks as though Mother Nature has been watching the calendar.  We have some great weather coming down the pipes. Sun and temps in the 20s should last all next week. This is going to be great for all the fishing fronts. People are already asking about pink salmon. We are going to start looking soon but don’t expect good reports until the middle/end of next month.  Saltwater fishing has slowed a little over the last 10 days. We are still consistently finding fish and as always its worth getting out but it has been a grind some days. All of the details on this week and what we’ve been fishing are in Jason’s report. On the lake…

OUTLOOK We will be getting some cloud and possibly some rain in the forecast this weekend but temperatures should say within seasonal norms and it looks as though all next week we will see sun and warm temperatures. Ocean fishing has slowed a little in the last couple days. We are still finding some nice fish out on our daily charters so it is worth getting out but there are noticeably less fish around.   As every fisherman knows, things can change in a day and we’re hoping for that to happen. It is just a matter of another wave of fish coming down the Georgia Straight. That could happen tomorrow or next week – the only way to find out is to get out on the water!  Check…

Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: June 9, 2017

OUTLOOK Some rain this week is probably a good thing for our fisheries. With Sun this weekend it could be perfect for getting out. The Capilano has been slow this season but with the rain they bumped up the water levels on Thursday and with any luck it will bring in some more fish. The interior lake fishing season is in full swing. Jason was up in Kamloops this week for a quick lake fishing getaway. At times they had to work and get technical with their chroni rigs but when the hatches came on fishing was hot. Hear a bit more from his trip in the stillwater section along with Andre’s overall interior report. The saltwater scene is still fishing well. This time of…

Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: June 2, 2017

OUTLOOK Well the weather was a little interesting this week but this weekend looks perfect! Relatively light winds are in the forecast with a perfect mix of high temperatures, sun and some cloud to break up the heat. Saltwater fishing has been very solid all week and with any luck it will continue. At times we have had to work for bites but almost every day has seen a good window of action. There have been a number of spots producing fish so make sure to check out Jason’s Vancouver Saltwater report. Though we are still not hearing solid Capilano River reports it should pick up any day. Last week in the Capilano report we talked about fly fishing with the Cap Bugger. This week…

Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: May 26, 2017

OUTLOOK It has been another amazing week of weather and we expect more to come this weekend! Lake fishing reports are rolling in and if you are heading out it looks to be the perfect weekend. Check out Andre’s Interior Lake Report for all the latest updates. If your plans take you more north to the Pemberton area, Jordan hit the Pemberton lakes this last week and had some decent fishing. All of the details of his trip are in his report. The saltwater fishing continues to be great but we did have some tough winds and tides to deal with this week.  The fishing really is changing day by day, from hot to not. Keep in mind that just because it was hot or cold…

OUTLOOK The long weekend is almost upon us! We’re looking forward to the sunshine and hitting the water this weekend. We can’t wait to hear about all your long weekend trips. In the interior lake fishing is heating up, and good reports are rolling in daily.   Andre has a quick overview below so be sure to read that if you’re headed to the interior this weekend.   Though river fishing is slowing down with the heat and high water there are still a few windows of opportunity. There are also many other fisheries to explore – including the bass fishery. Check out the overview of that in this week’s report. Saltwater fishing continues to be excellent. The season is off to a solid start so hopefully…

OUTLOOK This week’s big focus is lake fishing. Things are still a little cool in lake country but we are starting to hear solid reports and we expect more on the way. Weather in Merritt is a little cool but warming up this weekend and into next week. With 18 degree weather coming at the end of next week it is time to start planning a trip. With this in mind we have a number of cool features on essential gear to stay warm in the early season. Lake fishing this time of year can be some of the best of the season but many people forget how cold it is in the interior at night or early in the morning on the lakes. We…

Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: May 5, 2017

OUTLOOK May is here and that means many of us are thinking about long weekend lake fishing trips and getting out on the saltwater. With the warmer weather and rain in the forecast for the next day or so that means many of our Lower Mainland river systems will be in freshet.   So it’s time to put your steelhead gear away and dig out the lake fishing gear.   If you missed Matt’s lake fishing class last month be sure check it out this month! Chinook fishing continues to be hot! As we mentioned in last week’s report there are great options to fish whether here in the harbour or across the straight to Thrasher Rock.  Be sure to check out this week’s report as we…

OUTLOOK With May almost upon us things are warming up a bit. This means that some of our local river fisheries are winding down for the season. That said the Squamish is still producing decent numbers of fish so be sure to get out now while you can! While the river season may be coming to a close things are just getting going on the lake fishing front. Get tuned up for lake fishing season with our Introduction to Chironomid Techniques Course or our Introduction to Lake Fishing Course. See the classes and courses section for dates and further information. It has been another stellar week on the saltwater front. With fish being caught locally and across the straight there are plenty of places to…

Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: April 21, 2017

OUTLOOK Fishing reports this week were very solid across a number of fronts. Saltwater was the big highlight with very good fishing this last weekend on the Hump and across at Thrasher. Though we have some rain coming Saturday and Sunday, if you can get out it is definitely worth it! Check out Jason’s saltwater report for more details. The temperatures are going to rise today and it looks like we have a sizable storm passing through starting Saturday. This last Tuesday the warm weather and rain jumped the Squamish River up half a meter. The warmth forecasted for today, with a sizable storm to follow, may make things a challenge on the river front.  Any time we see 20-30mm in the forecast there is…
