Vancouver Salmon Fishing Update, February 13

The Pacific Angler guides have put in some serious time over the last week, fishing both locally as well as within the Gulf Islands.

Local fishing has been quite challenging with very few legal fish being taken.  Fishing across the Georgia Straight was strong last week with some great reports.  However, early this week we heard this trend had switched with the winter chinook moving into the Vancouver harbour.  The crabbing and prawning has continued to be strong.  If you enjoy shellfish then an 8 hr charter to Howe Sound in search of crabs, prawns, and winter chinook salmon is definitely worth while at this time of year.

The Vancouver weather forecast is calling for rainy conditions for the remainder of the week and Saturday but then a mixture of sun and cloud on Sunday.  The daily high temperatures are quite mild, ranging from 7 to 9 degrees Celsius.  The daily low temperatures range from 0 to 5 degrees Celsius.  The marine forecast for the Straight of Georgia is looking favourable with a southeast wind ranging from 5 to 15 knots until Friday and then switching to northwest ranging from 10 to 15 degrees Celsius.

If you would like to book a charter with Pacific Angler please do not hesitate to contact our booking manager, Dave, at our retail location on 78 East Broadway (604-872-2204).

Happy Fishing!
