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…

Vancouver Friday Fishing Report, April 13

Pacific Angler Outlook Well it’s lucky Friday the 13th.  Hopefully you are all enjoying the fine weather Vancouver has got to offer.  This weekend is definitely going to be a great one for fishing.  Sunny with some great daily temperatures. Within a two hour drive you’ve got your choice of fishing for steelhead and cutthroat trout in our rivers.  April is the peak of the run so if you are crazy about steelhead or cutthroat make sure to get out there.  The local lakes have been receiving their fresh stocks of fish as well.  Also, for the saltwater angler we’ve started to hear some good reports locally. The forecast for the weekend in Vancouver is looking good.  We are expecting sun on Saturday with a…

Vancouver Friday Fishing Report, March 30th

Pacific Angler Outlook It’s the last weekend of March and you know what that means…renewing your licence for the 2012/2013 fishing season.  You will need to renew your licence as of March 31st. To renew your licence just click on the links below.  We’ve provided both the freshwater and saltwater licencing systems. BC Freshwater Licence BC Saltwater Licence It is hard to believe it is almost April.  I thought spring was here last weekend with all of that sun.  But this week has brought rain and cloud, bumping up water levels for the river fisherman.  Rain is expected on the weekend as well. The Vancouver forecast is rain for both Saturday and Sunday with highs of 8 degrees Celsius.  The extended forecast is similar to…

Vancouver Friday Fishing Report, March 23

Pacific Angler Outlook: Well spring is kicking into full force.  April is an awesome time to be in Vancouver.  While the rest of Canada is recovering from a harsh winter with brown grass we Vancouverites have lush green grass and cherry blossoms popping out everywhere. Pacific Angler is enjoying the spring like conditions.  This morning I just picked up a large shipment of Simms waders, boots, and accessories.  The boys have been working hard to put it out.  We also received a bunch of Nautilus reels including the FWX.  Amazing reel for the price point. The outlook for this weekend is mild weather with a high of 12 degrees Celsius and lots of sun.  This is a great forecast for just about everyone except the…

Vancouver Friday Fishing Report, March 16th

Pacific Angler Outlook: It looks like we are going to have a mix of sun and cloud with a little precipitation this weekend.  The rivers all came up on Thursday and today it looks as though they have crested and are on the drop.  This is good news for steelhead anglers heading out this weekend.  There are some nice mellow tides this weekend as well and I expect some decent winter spring fishing will be had over the next few days.  We are also hearing some good cutthroat reports from the Fraser Valley.  So there is lots of opportunity this weekend, steelhead, chinook, and cutthroat, take your pick! Freshwater Report: There continues to be some good steelheading on the Chilliwack/Vedder, and with the river coming…

Vancouver Friday Fishing Report, March 9

Pacific Angler Outlook: The outlook for this weekend and even week seems to be rain.  Which can be good if we get just the right amount.  As mentioned before in Jason’s last report this past Wednesday, we’ve had some big tides.  And this has seemed to push in some fresh fish. The boys have heard some reports of fish being caught pretty much everywhere.  The Vedder has been fishing well.  It will be hard to tell if the rivers stay in shape throughout the weekend.  Make sure to check the river levels before you head out.  If you really want to nerd out make a note of the river level in your fishing journal.  Then you can reference it in the future and identify the…

Wednesday Fishing Report

We normally do “What’s New Wednesday” today, but by now I think all of you know what is new here at Pacific Angler, the new location of course! So instead of more shop pics and products I thought I would do a fishing report as Jason, Dimitri, and Andre were all out on the water yesterday. I fished a variety of rivers out in the Valley yesterday with Jason Bowers. Jason is the head guide up at Haa Nee Naa Lodge where I used to guide. He was down from Nelson to visit some family so we decided to head out for a full day of steelheading. We fished hard all day and it was cold and tough! The water conditions were absolutely perfect on…

Vancouver Friday Fishing Report, March 2nd

Pacific Angler Outlook: Well, we missed a few fridays due to the move but I am happy to say that we are now back at on schedule for our Vancouver Friday Fishing Report.  I must say it feels good to be somewhat settled and look forward to some great fishing this weekend. Matt and DImitri were on the Vedder this morning guiding a client on the fly.  The fishing was hot this morning with two quick fish hooked up.  Unfortunately both of those fish unbuttoned before they made it to the beach.  Our client then got into 3 fish around lunch time which was landed.  Not a bad day!!! The weather in Vancouver this friday was wet.  And it looks like this trend is going…

Vancouver Friday Fishing Report, Feb 3

Pacific Angler Outlook: The forecast for this weekend and the following week looks amazing.  Sunny skies with partial clouds and a high ranging from 7 to 10 degrees Celsius. So whether you are fishing in the chuck or in our coastal rivers make sure to take advantage of this great weather and soak up some vitamin D (sun).

Wind diminishing to light Saturday morning then becoming northeast 5 to 10 Saturday evening except light near Vancouver Island.” Overall, this weekend has the promise to…
