Friday Fishing Report June 29th

Pacific Angler Outlook It is mildly entertaining when we get excited about historically normal temperatures but with one of the coldest seasons on record, beggars can’t be choosers. For the next week we can expect mid to high teens and the interior is forecast for the first handful of hot summer days. For the long weekend be prepared for a few wet days. Monday temperatures will break the 20 degree mark locally and will almost reaching 30 degrees in Kamloops. This bodes well for the local and interior fishing scene. We received some great reports from fisheries across the province as they catch up from the long cold spring. The Fraser is still giving us problems and all those planning on spending time on or…

Vancouver Friday Fishing Report, June 15

Pacific Angler Outlook The story for this week unfortunately has been the weather.  The week started off with a bang on Monday…beautiful sunny day with no clouds.  A tease it was, as the clouds and rains returned for the rest of the week. A lot of the reports have been quite similiar from the interior lake anglers.  Unstable weather with grey overcast skies and scattered showers.  While the weather has been poor we’ve actually heard of some good reports.  I’ll get into these in the lake fishing section. The coastal river fishing on certain watersheds with regulated flows (ie. dams) had actually been producing quite well up to last weekend.  However, with the rain we received during the week and warmer temperatures most of those…

Vancouver Friday Fishing Report, June 8

Pacific Angler Outlook Where Is Summer?? I am tired of talking about unsettled weather and doubling up on fleece under my waders!  Even with the unseasonal weather we have heard of great reports accompanying the high volume of fleece and long johns being sold. The forecast looks better for the end of this weekend and all of next week.  You can expect temperatures rising just above the seasonal average. This weather has us back in our winter steelhead gear “simms fleece and gore-tex jackets” As always make sure to read the marine forecast for the latest conditions.  This is a great resource to check the conditions before you head out on the salt chuck.

Vancouver Friday Fishing Report, June 1st

Pacific Angler Outlook For the last 3 weeks we have seen wet unsettled weather leading up to great weather on the weekends. It looks like that trend is going to continue and we are not complaining. This weekend the lower mainland forecast looks good with temperatures rising into the high teens. In the interior we will have descent weather with temps getting into the 20s. We would like to see it a little warmer.  The settled weather should make for some good fishing. Lake fishing in the interior has been very good with some great reports from across the Kamloops & Merritt regions. Local lakes are pumping out fish with scheduled stockings. A nice one on a lake in the 5,000ft region – Thanks Dean!…

Vancouver Friday Fishing Report, May 25th

Pacific Angler Outlook Unsettled is a good word to describe both the weather and the fishing this last week. We had a number of average to good reports from the lake country. We saw some action on the local salt when the weather cooperated and there were some good reports from both Fraser sturgeon and the rivers not affected by freshet. This is awesome news because the weather looks great for weekend and the fishing should just get better.

Vancouver Friday Fishing Report, May 18th

Pacific Angler Outlook The hot weather made for some great fishing the last few days.  Although the weather has also brought a few adversities for different fisheries around the province.

Vancouver Friday Fishing Report, May 4th

Pacific Angler Outlook: I’ve got to say it has been an excellent week of fishing.  Everything from amazing chinook fishing locally in the Vancouver harbour to lake fishing in the interior, good sturgeon fishing in the Lower Fraser River, and even some late season steelhead reports.  Yes, it is all happening here at Pacific Angler and the British Columbia fishing scene. The boys at Pacific Angler have been gearing up all week stocking up on our favourite saltwater salmon gear and lake fishing gear.  Looking forward we are moving right into prime-time chinook fishing both locally around the Vancouver harbour and Thrasher Rock.  As well, the lake fishing will continue to improve as more and more lakes ice-off and turnover. The forecast for the weekend…

Vancouver Friday Fishing Report, April 27

Pacific Angler Outlook: The boys at Pacific Angler have seen a lot of rain fall over the last week.  As we watched the river levels sky rocket up we shed a little tear and mentally checked out of steelhead season.  I am not saying that the steelhead season is over but it is not looking good at this point. But as one door closes several open for the Vancouver fishermen.  Saltwater angler extraordinaire, Jason Tonelli, just hooked into his very first Thrasher Rock chinook this morning.  This is what every saltwater angler has been waiting to hear.  The saltwater season is officially underway!  The other door that has opened for the Vancouver angler is the lake fishing season.  We’ve heard the first reports from our…
