Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: January 15, 2021

Vedder_River_Chrome_Steelhead_Jan_2nd week_between_the_rains

OUTLOOK  It has been a wet week but there were windows of good fishing.  We have 3 major fisheries to look at this week.  One is doing relatively well; one is pulling through with “average” reports but we expect better things to come, and another is raising some eyebrows with concerning numbers.   The bright spot this week is the valley steelhead reports.  Even though river levels have been a challenge the week…

Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: January 8, 2021


OUTLOOK  2021 is already proving to be interesting.  At least for this weekend, on the weather front, things should improve.  We got smoked all week with heavy rains and the rivers reacted accordingly.   The silver lining is that the rivers are dropping as we write the report and they should fish well over Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  There is more rain next week so keep an eye on river levels.  We have…

Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: December 4, 2020


OUTLOOK  For most, December is not a “fishing month” but there can still be some pretty cool opportunities to get out.  We obviously ask everyone going fishing to respect public health orders but we feel that fishing is still a great social distancing activity and important for mental and physical health.   This week, we have updates on the Chilliwack where though salmon fishing is pretty much…

Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: November 20, 2020


OUTLOOK  As we are heading into the back half of November, we are dodging the usual late fall storms and high-water levels, but when things have lined up, solid salmon reports are still coming in.  We have updates on the Vedder, Harrison and Stave in the freshwater fishing section below.   There is still good salmon river fishing but we are now past “prime time” and are looking to the next fisheries.  One that is…
