Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: May 21, 2021

OUTLOOK  The May Long Weekend is upon us and it looks like a great weekend to get outdoors locally and enjoy some time on the water.    As many of you know, decisions were made last week re: our chinook fishery and the SFAB proposals for the Vancouver area were not accepted.  Despite these proposals being specifically designed to minimize impact on stocks of concern and focus on hatchery fish, the Minister and her team said no.    Jason has more on it in the saltwater section below but, in short, it was a political decision rather than a decision based on science.  In the coming weeks, we will drill into this issue more but, in the interim, we recommend that you find a way to get involved.  The Sport Fishing Institute of BC and the Public…

Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: April 02, 2021

river_fishing_harrison_cuttthroat_fishing

OUTLOOK  Happy Long Weekend Everyone!  It looks like we will see some rain but this is a good thing for the river fisherman.  In this week’s report we have info on the Squamish, the Vedder as well as the Harrison and the Stave.  The weather was a little interesting last weekend but we are hearing good cutthroat reports and with some overcast drizzly days this weekend all the rivers should fish well.   The big news this week has to be the saltwater chinook fishing regulations that were released. If you guys missed it, and you are planning on taking the boat out this weekend, be sure to familiarize yourself with the regulations.  Be sure to check back for any updates and amendments to the regulations and make sure to read Jason’s Important Chinook Update that went out earlier today.    On a lighter note, if you are gearing up for lake fishing, Zach has a cool Interior…

Saltwater_fishing_Vancouver_scouting_for_Chinook

OUTLOOK  We hope that you all had a great Thanksgiving Long Weekend and enjoyed an extra day on the water or around the table with family.  Last week we saw a ton of water but we also saw less water than was forecasted.  Things came into shape on the river fast and we heard good river reports across the board.   There is more rain expected this weekend but, not half as much as we saw last week, and we will see the first cold nights early next week.  We expect things to clear up fast and drop when those low night time temperatures hit.   We will touch on all the river fishing in the Freshwater Fishing Report Section below updates on the Squamish, Stave, Harrison, Capilano and Vedder.  Fishing has been good and we are seeing some of the later runs start to show up…

Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: July 24, 2020

OUTLOOK  Summer is finally showing herself and we hope you are all having a chance to enjoy it responsibly.   This week we have an update on Interior Lake fishing.  Matt was up last weekend in the Kamloops region and Zach also make a trip at the end of last week.  Matt will share his observations and a little on the strategies used in the lake section as well as in the video version of the report.   On the river front, we will look at reports from the Vedder, Skagit and Capilano.  Water levels are coming down and for the Vedder and Skagit we are hearing better reports.  The Capilano is getting low.  For river anglers this is not great but it is exactly what the beach anglers are looking for.   With rivers getting lower, the saltwater coho anglers are hooking more fish and though they are still focusing on areas just outside of the harbour, we’re starting to hear consistent coho reports from…
