On Monday we heard of some strong reports from Thrasher Rock. Fish are now starting to be caught more inshore off what is called the Waterfall. This happened last year but during the May long weekend. That means that the fish are a couple of weeks late. Our guides expect this fishery to be the top producer for the next couple of weeks. We’ll make sure to keep you updated on this.
If you are looking to get out for a full day of salmon fishing in Vancouver with some family and friends this is a great time of year to head out. Our guides have been getting good catches of large chinook salmon and still some really good crabbing. The views of the city of Vancouver, Howe Sound and surrounding area are amazing from Thrasher Rock. And all in just a 40 minute boat ride from downtown Vancouver.
So whether you are a local of Vancouver looking to get on the water for your once a year fishing excursion or coming into town on business or visiting friends make sure to give Dave, Pacific Angler booking manager, a call at 604-872-2204.
For the weekend warrior Thrasher Rock is definitely the place to be. Make sure to call Pacific Angler for an up-to-date report or sign up for the Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report.
The week long forecast for Vancouver is looking a little bleak. However they are calling for a beautiful sunny day on Friday. Highs are just below 20 degrees Celsius with lows ranging from 10 to 13 degrees Celsius. In short, make sure to bring a light rain coat and layer up with a warm sweater.
Marine Forecast: Georgia Basin
Currently there is a wind warning in effect. However, the forecast is for the wind to diminish to light by Thursday morning. We’ve had our fair share of bumpy days on the water due to strong winds. It would be nice to have a few days of nice flat calm conditions. We’ll have to see what the weekend brings us. The marine forecast is always changing and being updated so make sure to check it out before you head out. All of our saltwater salmon guides check conditions from their phone so they can make the best call for our clients.
