2021_course_schedule

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…

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_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…
