Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: April 21, 2017

Pacific_Angler

OUTLOOK Fishing reports this week were very solid across a number of fronts. Saltwater was the big highlight with very good fishing this last weekend on the Hump and across at Thrasher. Though we have some rain coming Saturday and Sunday, if you can get out it is definitely worth it! Check out Jason’s saltwater report for more details. The temperatures are going to rise today and it looks like we have a sizable storm passing through starting Saturday. This last Tuesday the warm weather and rain jumped the Squamish River up half a meter. The warmth forecasted for today, with a sizable storm to follow, may make things a challenge on the river front.  Any time we see 20-30mm in the forecast there is…

Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: April 14, 2017

OUTLOOK Well we saw some decent weather mixed with some wet weather this week and though we are absolutely due for some more sun, there is not much of it in the forecast. Putting the lack of vitamin D depression aside, the good news is that the fishing forecast looks pretty good. The warmer mix of rain and sun has kept the fry hatching and water temps relatively warm on the river front and it is also keeping river levels at good heights. With a little rain in the forecast today and tomorrow, but no major storms on the horizon, this should continue and Sunday looks like it will be nice. What day will be best? It’s hard to tell and everyone shouldn’t go rushing…

OUTLOOK First off a big thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate our 10 Year Anniversary by dropping by the shop over the weekend for the sale! We wouldn’t be here without our amazing team and customers, thanks! On the fishing front things look promising for the weekend. We have some issues with the weatherman but we are optimistic that he will sort things out.  While there is rain and wind in the forecast, we’re confident we can work around that and that things will shape up for some good conditions and some good fishing. We’ve had a good week on the saltwater front, finding fish off of Bowen, up the sounds and in the Harbour. Spring fishing has arrived!   Check out Jason’s…

Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: March 24, 2017

OUTLOOK Things are heating up and so is the fishing! We are hearing consistent cutthroat reports from the Fraser Valley and this week we are featuring the best selection of cutthroat gear as our Friday Feature Product. Andre has an overview of the gear he uses for this fishery and everything he lists is on sale at 10% off for the next week.  If you are planning to do some cutthrouting in the next few weeks you do not want to miss out on this! Matt was up the Squamish last weekend and though they had a challenging trip there is hope in sight. We expect it to be good this weekend if the weather holds and it will only get better over the next…

Pacific_Angler_Vedder_River_Guided_Trips

OUTLOOK River levels did not bump up as much as we expected last week. The Squamish was relatively low for Matt’s course on the weekend and fishing was a challenge. We heard of a few steelhead and bulltrout but overall it was not hot. With more rain this week and Matt on the water again, check out his predictions for this weekend in the river section below. The Vedder pumped out some more good fish over the weekend and did not blow out with the rain but it started rising on Tuesday. Keep an eye on the weather report and the river levels this weekend! Max had his intruder course this week and even a number of very experienced tiers were impressed with his tricks,…

Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: Friday March 10, 2017

OUTLOOK We have another storm coming and though there will be some snow expected in various areas as the storm progresses over the weekend, things will warm up. This will mean rising rivers. We may see some blown out conditions over the next few days but most rivers are low right now and could use the rain. We expect periods of good fishing mixed in with the high water over the weekend and into early next week but when the rain ends and things start dropping the weather looks as though it will stay warm. We expect cutthroat fishing, bulltrout fishing and steelheading to pick up when this happens. Check out the river reports and plan your time out on the water appropriately. Winter chinook…

Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: March 3, 2017

OUTLOOK We were hoping spring was on its way but if the weatherman is on his game we are going to be seeing another winter storm. For today and the weekend this could mean good fishing. There is quite a bit of rain in the forecast and it will bump up many of the local rivers. These rivers have been low, clear and cold all week but the precipitation should change things. Into next week things do not look as optimistic, with snow and cold weather on its way. Push to get out before this storm. Though the forecast does not look hopeful for early next week the long term has some promise. With any luck this will be a last big winter storm of…

Pacific_Angler_Vedder_River

OUTLOOK It was a good week in the fishing world. We saw some better reports off the Vedder early in the week. Things slowed down a bit yesterday but with some precipitation in the forecast and then warmer weather it should be improving. Squamish fished well earlier in the week but it has dropped and was a challenge for Matt who was out fishing yesterday. Check out all our freshwater reports for further details on the local rivers. On the saltwater front we have been busy again this week working to get our boats in top shape for the spring season. While things have not been red hot, if you were able to time your trips to get out on the water when it was…

OUTLOOK Well at least it is warming up. After a very cold and snowy winter season there is hope in sight. It is starting to feel like spring and with it we should see fishing pick up. In this transition period we have had to deal with heavy rain and snow melt. Most of our rivers have been high and dirty. With it fishing has been a challenge but when things drop, expect excellent river fishing. Salmon fry will start to hatch in numbers over the next 2-3 weeks and warmer temps mean steelhead and bulltrout are much more eager to bite. Check out all the river reports for predictions on when things will come into shape. Solid reports are still coming off the water…
