Vancouver Island River Fishing Report
By Ian Barker, The Rambling Fisherman | Last updated: January 21st, 2014
Ian Barker of The Rambling Fisherman is a seasoned angler on several Vancouver Island Rivers. He offers guided fishing trips on his drift draft for salmon and steelhead. Currently guided drift fishing trip for steelhead on the Cowichan, Stamp and several other rivers are available at $425 for two anglers! Please click here for more information...
The last week has seen a vast improvement in the Steelhead catch and release in the Cowichan river. We went from catching maybe 1 steelhead per day to catching 2 to 6 in recent days. The fish have been spectacular, all of them are chrome bullets straight out of the ocean. The water quality is steelhead green and the river level is at a respectable 1.2m. The fishing is very good and will most likely continue to get better through February and March.
I have a few guide days available in February and more days available in March. Great fishing to be had for Steelhead in the Cowichan river and the Gold river. Book your days early! Please call or text: 250-218-1087.
