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…

Vancouver Friday Fishing Report, August 24 2012

Pacific Angler Outlook: When things are slow it can be tough to write this report but this week we are having no problem finding great reports. Fisheries have been producing well across the province.  Primarily the local saltwater fisheries for Chinook and coho salmon and river fisheries for Chinook and trout have been producing best. Ocean fishing was, for a better word “on fire” with Chinook coming through in big waves. This is peak migration time for this fishery and we have heard lots of big fish staging off the mouth of the Fraser River.  Things were a bit slower over the past couple of days but we expect the fishing will turn on again when another wave of Chinooks shows up off the mouth…

Vancouver Friday Fishing Report, August 17th 2012

Pacific Angler Outlook: Welcome to the Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report.  The staff at Pacific Angler is proud to be your source for fishing information throughout British Columbia. It looks like we are in for another great week of weather with temperatures in the low 20s. Fishing has been solid on a number of systems and we are seeing better fishing in the salt chuck. Things just picked up off Bell Buoy, Spanish Banks and towards the mouth of the Fraser for Chinook. We expect this fishery to improve over the next 2 weeks and last well into September. Peek migration of Fraser Chinook is predicted for some time in the next 2-3 weeks and with good numbers already in the Fraser this bodes well…

The Cuba Report, 2012

This March the Pacific Angler Team travelled to the remote Northeast coast of Cuba to the world class flats destination of Cayo Cruz.  Here is the report on a truly fabulous trip. Paradise in the Middle of No-Where Cayo Cruz is located Southeast of Cayo Coco in the remote province of Camaguey. It is a stunning yet rugged land and only in the last 3-4 years have tourists (mostly fisherman) been traveling to the area. You will hear many people say that when you travel to Cuba it is like stepping into a time machine and rolling back the dial 50 years. In Cayo Cruz you will need to add a few more decades to the dial. Horse drawn carts are as common as cars,  …

Vancouver Friday Fishing Report, August 10 2012

Pacific Angler Outlook Welcome to the Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report.  The staff at Pacific Angler is proud to be your source for fishing information throughout British Columbia. Last week we spoke of the heat winning the battle against the large snow pack. Though the war is still raging the heat is winning the battle.  The Fraser River has dropped to a good fishing level while the Vedder, Skagit, Thompson Rivers and many have started to fish well.  While we can expect some amazing river fishing throughout August the lake fishing scene is quite slow due to the warm weather (which is typical for August).  For the adventurous angler willing to hike into high alpine lakes there are some good opportunities. Out in the salt…
