Well, it is hard to believe that January is coming to an end. In my view February is always a welcome site as it means we are just one month away from the Vancouver spring. However, there is still some great fishing on the saltwater to look forward to over the remainder of the winter.
Pacific Angler head saltwater guide, Eddie, was on the water Sunday afternoon. He reported that overall the fishing was quite slow with just one hookup on the afternoon flood tide. He did get 5 nice dungeness crabs which is always a crowd pleaser. Overall, it was a bit of a slow week on the water. Hopefully, things will turn on this week now that we’ve got through the full moon. Eddie will be out again on Friday and then Jason will be out on the weekend for Pacific Angler’s Mastering Local Saltwater Salmon course.
The weather is looking typical for February. The Vancouver weather forecast is calling for rain and cloudy conditions for the remainder of the week (with the exception being Wednesday). The daily high temperatures range from 6 to 9 degrees Celsius while the daily low temperatures range from 3 to 6 degrees Celsius. So make sure to bring your rain gear and rubber boots. The marine forecast for the Straight of Georgia is calling for fairly light winds ranging from 5 to 15 knots northwest and then turning to southeast. Make sure to check the most up-to-date forecasts before you head out as Vancouver can experience some big storms through the winter.
