Vancouver_salmon_fishing_August'21

OUTLOOK  We hope everyone had a great sunny long weekend.  This weekend is looking a bit different with some rain in the forecast and though it might not be as nice for an outing in the sun, we need the water.  With the exception of the Squamish, all our local rivers are low.    In this week’s report we have  low water reports for the Skagit and Chilliwack and we have…

OUTLOOK  Another weekend of clear weather is incoming.  Temperatures in Vancouver will dip a little on Saturday but on the 14-day forecast we expect average or slightly above seasonal temperatures.  Overall, this will be good for fishing, but we would like to see some overcast days and a little rain to bring up the low river levels and to help with the fire situation.   The pinks have arrived in some places in limited numbers, and we expect things…

Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: July 2, 2021

OUTLOOK  Welcome to July.  Wow, it was hot last week, we hope everyone found a way to stay cool. Prayers and best wishes go out to the residents of Lytton.    Besides causing major problems across the province, the heat has also shifted fisheries.  River levels rose in many areas.  We didn’t see major rises on too many of the Lower Mainland rivers, but we…

OUTLOOK  Heat wave incoming!  It looks like another amazing week of weather, but the heat has some caveats when it comes to fishing.  Local lake trout fishing will slow with this heat.  We have some details as to how to deal with this in that section below.   Interior lakes will still fish well at higher elevation, but fish will be going deep.  Early season shallow…
