Tuesday Fishing Report

Brrrr!  It’s cold out there and the rivers are dropping fast and getting clear after having come up nicely on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  There were some fresh coho and chum that rolled in on those days and there was some good fishing on the Chehalis, Harrison, and Lower Squamish.  Expect things to be pretty low and clear until the next front rolls in sometime tomorrow or Thursday.  The key will be the freezing level.  If it doesn’t get too cold the rivers should come up again and fishing will pick up as some more fresh fish push in. Some of the later coho are some of the biggest of the season. We still have a few Z-Axis rods at 40%, check out the blog…

Tuesday Fishing Report and Snot

Oh, the life of a river fisherman… Too much rain, not enough rain, what to do?  Well the “dry” streak continues and most of the rivers are really low and clear with the lower temperatures we now have at night and no rain.  It looks like we might get some rain later this week and that will bring some rivers up and some fresh coho and chum in.  For now anglers have been doing okay in the Fraser back channels for coho on the fly and spinners and spoons.  Check out the blog post last week for info on fly and spinner choices.  If the rain comes the rivers and creeks will rise and the staging coho and chum will make a break for it. …

November Outlook: Chum Opens and Chrome Coho!

November is here and we have some great fishing this time of year!  Far too many anglers hang up their rods after Halloween, but those in the know are getting ready for some of the best fall fishing of the year.  Speaking of Halloween, check out this G. Loomis inspired pumpkin carving from PA customer Ted. If you want to get educated this November so you can catch some coho and chum, check out yesterday’s post about our November Courses, including some great fly tying courses. Yes I said chum!  DFO HAS OPENED CHUM SALMON!  Here is the info from the email we received yesterday: “Returns of chum salmon to the  Fraser River have begun to pick up and have remained steady since mid-week last week….

Halloween Weekend Chrome Coho

Well we said the rivers might bump up this weekend with the rain we just had and they sure did…  Not a lot, but just enough to bring in some chrome coho for lucky Pacific Angler customer Dave who was out with PA staff and guide Andre today.  Check out his first salmon on the fly!  Not a bad way to start, sea lice chromer… Dave with a chrome coho only hours from the ocean. This is coho time people, and the run this year appears to be strong on almost every local system.  Chrome coho enter the rivers each rain through Oct, Nov, and even into Dec in some systems.  They can be almost suicidal at times, and other days they won’t bite anything,…

Thursday, October 28th Sturgeon and Salmon Report

We were out sturgeon fishing on this beautiful fall day and the morning started off with a nice sturgeon to the boat. Dave fighting the first fish of the day. The first fish of the day to the boat. The bite was pretty strong in the morning and right after this fish hit the boat Jason Assonitis hooked up and landed the second fish of the day. The sturgeon are feeding heavily on roe this time of year, fattening up for long winter ahead.  Chum or pink roe bags are generally the top producing baits this time of year.  There has been good fishing from the Chilliwack/Harrison area down to the Fort Langley area.  If you haven’t tried fishing for these monsters, I highly recommend…
