Friday Fishing Report: Jan 10th, 2014

Outlook: In January we look forward to reports of fresh steelhead pushing into rivers, winter chinook becoming keepers as they continue to feast on the bait balls coming into the harbour and around Bowen Island etc.  While fresh rain is helping out the rivers and bringing in fresh fish, its not the most pleasant weather to angle in and it does make for ugly commutes to work and back! Looking ahead for the next 7-10days in the Lower Mainland we are seeing a lot of rain in forecast which may dump some snow on the upper reaches of the Squamish so if you are heading up to higher elevations please check the current forecasts and be sure you are properly equipped for winter driving to…

Outlook: Checking in on the weather forecast for this weekend and the long range we will give you Vancouver & Squamish 14day forecasts.  While we have a snowfall warning for this weekend in the GVRD but don’t let than dampen your shopping spirits!!

Allow me to “paint” a picture for you regarding the current weather forecast in Vancouver that is…

Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: Sept 6th, 2013

Outlook: Welcome to a wet start to Sept!  This year, there was no doubt about the end of summer.  Even late yesterday afternoon the rolling thunder following the frequent lightening we could see outside the store was a reminder of what we have enjoyed AND what is coming. That being said, fishing has been AMAZING.  Fresh pinks being caught off Furry Creek, Birkenhead fishing well (when not hit by flash floods).  Fraser river opening after being closed to protect the precious sockeye run.  Lake fishing coming back into the picture!  The local salt from W. Van down to the Sandheads has been consistently producing good numbers of Chinook from low teens to 30+lb! September is AMAZING local fishing.  We have had a great start to…

Friday Fishing Report: June 21, 2013

Outlook: The best description for the recent weather patterns and barometric pressure patterns is YO-YO! It has been up, down and all around. We had a charter last sunday and the forecast was for strong winds in the Gulf Islands and it was flat calm. Same happened in the middle of the week as well. So, when you are looking at the Gulf, Georgia Basin for weather forecasts, keep in mind that not everything being predicted has been coming true. Be cautious but also be willing to do a last minute check on the Government Marine Forecast even the morning before you go to see what is going on. The weather looks great for the weekend! Once again, the barometric pressure in the interior looks…

BC Friday Fishing Report, May 24th, 2013

Outlook: Welcome back to typical late spring and almost summer weather here in Vancouver!  The barometer is looking fairly steady over the next few days.  Lows of 9 and highs of 20 straight through to Monday. 40-60% chance of rain in the lower mainland this weekend but this should not stop anyone from hitting the water! This is the same forecast for up the interior this weekend as well.  There is a slight drop in the barometer on Saturday but I am not letting this stop me from heading for some lake fishing this weekend!! Over the Georgia Basin this weekend the winds are SE and 5-15knots all weekend, nice and steady!  Forecasts this week were for cloud and rain and it cleared up and…

Friday Fishing Report – May 10th, 2013

Well, the weather happened. Mother Nature gave us a quick taste of the summer weather to look forward to. The forecast going into next week is a little more familiar for spring. Madriga the infamous weatherman has told us to look for sun until Saturday afternoon then we can expect some unsettled weather and rain.                         This past week out in Burrard Inlet at The Hump and at Thrasher Rock the weather has been great and so has the fishing. Georgia Strait Marine Forecast has light winds in the forecast till saturday then the over saturday night and into sunday the winds push up to 15-20knots southeast which will not have as much of an impact…
