River_fishing_Stave_Coho

OUTLOOK  It is almost half way through November and its really starting to feel like winter out there.   It looks like a wet week coming up and with cool temps, some of the precipitation may come as snow.  If you are heading into the hills, make sure you’ve got a shovel and some tow straps in the trunk!   Also, if you’re heading out, be sure to…

River_Fishing_Stave_Coho

OUTLOOK  Welcome to November everyone!  We hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween.  The weather has been interesting this week, with lots of rain and warmer temperatures for our major river systems and high water.  We are hopeful this will change with a cooling trend and less rain.   This week we have reports from the Squamish, Chilliwack and Harrison systems.  The Fraser river bar fishery is also…

River_Fishing_Squamish_Coho

OUTLOOK  It has been an interesting week with even more interesting weather.  The weather has gotten seasonably warm and the subsequent rain and snowmelt spiked and dirtied up rivers that are fed from the snow pack.  Rivers that are not melt fed are still good and some are in perfect shape.   We have reports from the Stave, Harrison and Vedder in the freshwater section of the report and we also have info on the Squamish where there has been concern regarding the regulation…

OUTLOOK  Sumer 3.0!  Well, we keep getting waves of unseasonably warm weather and with-it smoke from the forest fires down south.  We could do without the poor air quality but the warmth should make for great fishing weather.  This week we look at all the major river systems along with an update from the saltwater front.   We’re taking a break from the video version…

Interior_Lake_Fishing_Rainbow_Tunkwa_Lake

OUTLOOK  The first storm of the Fall season is rolling through as we write this report.  This is big news and will shuffle things up on many of our fisheries.  As we write this report, most of our rivers are blown out or are heading in that direction but, when things settle, expect excellent fishing.   This week Taylor looks at the Vedder and we have some info on sturgeon fishing from Aidan.  Zach…

Stave_short_floating_ for _salmon

OUTLOOK  Last week we were excited about warm weather and a possible summer 2.0.   Unfortunately, we did not tell them that we didn’t want a repeat of summer 2017 where we didn’t see the sun for days on end because of the smoke.   While the smoke is not great for getting outside, we did see some cool outdoor photography this week.   Looking into this weekend, the smoke doesn’t seem…
