Happy upcoming BC Family Day! From the staff at Pacific Angler we all hope you get a chance to get out on the water with family and friends…we definitely will. In fact Pacific Angler has renamed the holiday BC Fishing Day.
Salmon fishing within the Vancouver Harbour has been tough as of late. However, the guides have been spotting lots of bait so the winter chinook salmon should stick around once they come into the harbour. When the weather conditions have been favourable the Salty Dawg has been making it to the other side of the Georgia Straight. Fishing has been good over there with a few legal fish being taken. Pacific Angler saltwater guides, Eddie and Jason, have been doing well with their favourite 3.0 spoons such as Kitchen Sink, Cop Car, etc. Our guides have been finding that running a rod without a flasher has been productive with the clear winter water conditions. The crabbing and prawning has been good, which is typical for February.
This weekend would be perfect opportunity to get a group of friends, family or coworkers together for a full day of fishing in the Gulf Islands. Fishing for winter chinook salmon has been good and the scenery is amazing on a clear and sunny day. The Vancouver weather forecast is calling for sunny conditions on Sunday! Friday, Saturday and Monday is forecasted to have cloudy conditions. The daily high temperature has been pleasantly mild this week and will continue into the weekend, ranging from 7 to 8 degrees Celsius.
The tides are looking excellent for the weekend with a beautiful mid-day high slack tide.
