Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: May 17, 2019

OUTLOOK The May Long Weekend Friday Fishing Report is here.  We CANNOT wait to get out on the water this weekend  – from lake fishing, sturgeon fishing, bass fishing, to saltwater there is so much to do.  But don’t worry we’ll be here for you in shop to get ready to go for your long weekend fishing adventure!   We’re open regular hours all weekend and closed on Monday.   Alex has a great feature this week on topwater bass fishing, be sure to take a read of that below along with Aidan and Jordan’s reports on lake fishing in the Interior and the Sea-To-Sky corridor.    If you’re staying in town this weekend don’t forget about our local ‘urban’ lakes,  they are great fishing and something that…

Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: April 5, 2019

OUTLOOK  The first big storm of spring is incoming! If the weather man is on his game, we are in for a wet one this weekend and it will affect all our major fisheries.   Over the next 3 days we are going to get dumped on. We have had reports that the Squamish system is already on its way to being dirty and high. It will be interesting to see how high it goes, and flooding could be an issue if we get all the rain predicted. Needless to say fishing will be a challenge. If you are heading out be very cognizant of safety and river levels.    This weather will have similar effects on the Vedder and other medium to high gradient systems. The lower gradient systems like the Harrison should still fish well as it takes longer…

Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: March 8, 2019

OUTLOOK We don’t know what is with Thursday nights and writing the report but it seems like every day we start working on this report the weather is nasty. The good news this week is this might be the last of it. The 14 day trend looks to be bringing much warmer weather and the outlook for the weekend it pretty nice. This week we have updates on all our major rivers and we have a brief section dedicated the reports of the salmon fry hatching. This hasn’t started yet but it looks to be just around the corner and something all rivers anglers will want to keep an eye on.  On the fly tying front Matt and Jordan have been tying up a storm…

Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: September 16, 2016

OUTLOOK It looks like we are going to see some rain in the forecast and it couldn’t come at a better time for river fishing. Areas like the Vedder and Capilano should see a rise in water levels and the second things settle we could be in for the first good coho fishing of the river season. It may not be ideal to head out today or tomorrow but Sunday and into next week should be good. This makes it perfect timing for you to come down to the shop for our FALL SALMON SALE! All shameless sales pitches aside it will be a great time to load up and re-stock. Everything is on sale and we have some very good deals on all the…
