Vancouver Friday Fishing Report, November 9

Pacific Angler Outlook: Well, it is another week in paradise for the Vancouver angler.  While the rest of Canada is taking out their ice fishing rods we are hooking into chrome salmon, steelhead, feisty bulltrout, searun cutthroat, or absolutely epic sturgeon. Check out the picture below of Brian, who recently just got into fly fishing this past month. With a little help from the boys at Pacific Angler and some new gear Brian was able to hook into a few nice coho salmon, on his 5 weight fly rod to add.  Nice job Brian! Lets start off by reviewing the forecast for Vancouver as the weather has been a deciding factor over the last two weeks.  The rain, over the last two weeks, had basically…

Vancouver Friday Fishing Report, November 2nd

Pacific Angler Outlook: Welcome to the Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report.  We are proud to be your source of fishing information.  As we settle into the true fall season on the West Coast so do the rains.  And as the rain continues to fall, the fall salmon continue to enter our local rivers. But before we get to the fishing, Pacific Angler would like to recognize Ali Alami, of M1 Innovations, for his initiative in raising money for Operation Smile.  With a little help from the Pac Ang Team and Fishing With Rod, we were able to raise just over $1,500.00 for this great cause.  A big thanks goes out to Ali and all those gracious people who donated their hard earned money to Operation…

Vancouver Friday Fishing Report, October 26

Pacific Angler Outlook This weekend promises to be one of the best weeks of salmon fishing in the Lower Mainland and Sea to Sky Corridor.  The salmon are here!  The past weekend and week has brought us some amazing fishing which will continue into the weekend and next week.  Check out the pictures below from Pacific Angler’s Salmon on the Fly course with Andre.  Andre still has a couple spots available for the two upcoming courses so give us a call if you are interested! Pacific Angler also does guided trips on the top producing salmon rivers throughout the Lower Mainland.  If you would like to book your day on the water do not hesitate to contact Pacific Angler’s dedicated booking manager Dave @ the…

Vancouver Friday Fishing Report, October 19

Pacific Angler Outlook The staff at Pacific Angler almost forgot what rain looks like but Mother Nature seems determined to remind us. For the fall salmon angler rain can be both good news and bad news. The good news is the high water has brought in a ton of fresh salmon.  The bad news has been that we received so much rain that it blew out the majority of the rivers in the Lower Mainland and Sea to Sky Corridor. The majority of rivers have been blown out all week.  The Vancouver weather forecast is calling for more rain over the weekend. If enough of the precipitation is snow in the high country we might be surprised. The forecast for the weekend is perfect and…

Vancouver Friday Fishing Report, October 12

Pacific Angler Outlook Fall is in the air!  The days are shorter, darker and yes, rain is (will be) a constant.  For most normal people in Vancouver this brings on the first dose of fall/winter depression, but not for the keen Vancouver angler.  The fall rains bring a smile across the many anglers throughout the Lower Mainland.  Salmon river fishing is in full swing. The Vancouver forecast is calling for rain all this weekend and into next week.  You can expect daily high temperatures to range from 12 to 15 degrees Celsius.  These are perfect fishing conditions.  It is important to wear layered clothing and good rain gear to keep you dry all day. The story for this week is definitely the rain.  Vancouver is…

Vancouver Friday Fishing Report, October 5

Pacific Angler Outlook The big story this week is still the weather forecast with NO RAIN IN SIGHT! The good news for fisherman is that it looks as though the fish have realized that they can’t wait any longer.  The Pacific Angler staff had a number of reports confirming that salmon are simply disregarding the low water. The Vedder, Stave and Harrison all had fish show up this week. The Albion test fishery blew up with good numbers of chum salmon this last week.  Salmon have shown up in the Harrison, Stave, Vedder and Squamish Rivers.  The numbers are higher than last year but similar to 2009 and 2010.  Coho numbers are lower than normal.  It can be noted that not many coho salmon are…

Friday Fishing Report, September 28

Pacific Angler Outlook Wow, I can’t believe September is almost over.  The story of the month has been the unseasonably warm temperatures and absolute lack of rain. I wish I could say that this is going to change.  While the Vancouver forecast is calling for some rain and cooler weather I don’t expect the rain to do too much to the rivers.  I do expect the cooler weather to make some river systems drop. These cooler temperatures are actually a good thing for the glacial rivers in the Lower mainland and Sea-to-Sky Corridor.   For the Capilano, Vedder and Harrison Rivers this will only make the rivers lower. The Pacific Angler staff are hearing mixed reports from the beaches.  The salmon are staging along the West…

Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report, September 14

Pacific Angler Outlook The salmon are coming!  We are seeing coho in the albiane test sets and numbers are improving every day. The Pacific Angler staff have heard of decent Chinook salmon fishing in the Vedder River and some reports of coho salmon but nothing hot yet. Dimitri is out scouting Saturday and we expect him to run across some fish. The “Salty Dawg” hooked a big chum yesterday off the mouth of the Fraser so they are on the way and should be showing up in the rivers soon. Across the Lower Mainland expect the coho to start showing themselves in the next 10-15 days. The Fraser River is fishing better for Chinook salmon and Sturgeon. There is a salmon fishing bait ban above Mission Bridge…

Friday Fishing Report Sept 07

Pacific Angler Outlook September is Here! We had an awesome August and with rivers hitting perfect levels, lake country cooling off, Fraser salmon moving through the bay and the Skeena reporting amazing numbers we are looking forward to the fishing this month. Last weekend we hosted the first annual Labor Day Chinook Classic and the event was a huge successes. We will admit that after day one we were thinking about re naming the weekend the Labor Day Chinook Challenge because 30 minuets before the opening gunshot a pod of killer whales moved through the harbor. All experienced fisherman know what that means. Though a few fish were hooked we did not have a legal fish entered after the first day of competition. In hindsight…

Friday Fishing Report August 31st

Pacific Angler Outlook Wow, August flew by fast! It was a great month for fishing across the Lower Mainland. With great runs of salmon in the saltwater and Fraser River, great trout fishing when the water finally dropped on the Skagit and Thompson,  and stunning early numbers from the Skeena Watershed, we are eagerly awaiting September. The Labour Day Chinook Classic Starts Tomorrow! We have seen a great response and strong turn out but there are still spots available.  If you don’t want to go for the 2 day event the daily jackpot is only $250 per day per boat. The biggest fish each day is going to take home big cash prizes. If you are planning on fishing this weekend it would be a…
