Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: November 8, 2019
« on: November 08, 2019, 08:17:22 PM »


We wish everyone a great Remembrance Day long weekend and once you have had time to pay your respects it looks like a good weekend to get out on the water! We will see a little rain on Saturday and that should help colour up the waters of our local rivers. This is a good thing because as it stands the river are getting low. There is more water coming up the valley than the Squamish but we do not expect things to get too dirty. Check out the details on the Vedder and Squamish in the report below.

Over the last week we have seen improving chum numbers. Though the numbers are still concerning there have been some positive reports and when looking at the Albion numbers we are seeing much more positive late season numbers. This has made for some good fishing on the Stave and Harrison. We have details on both below.

We have something a little different in this week’s report as well. With the lower Fraser open for coho we have a fun piece by Aiden on how to bar fish. He has been out and it has not been great fishing but the tides look better for Monday and it is relatively easy fishery close to home.

On the YouTube front we have another Fly-Tying video from Zach this week. It is a beautiful steelhead fly that we used on the Dean river this year and it had excellent success. We expect it will be a go to fly for the local winter steelhead season so if you are preparing your steelhead box you will want to check it out.

With fly tying and steelhead box preparation in mind we want you to “save the date”  for our Steelhead Tying Jam Session! This is a super cool event that we have put on for almost a decade where we can all get together, have a few beverages, watch some amazing tying and if you sign up early and reserve a “tying spot” you can bring down a vice and follow along with some of our pro tiers.  Official details on how to sign up will be released next Tuesday but in the meantime save Tuesday November 26 in your calendars!

Lastly, we have Jason’s winter chinook update.  While it is not a popular time for many to get out on the water now is the time to get out on the water and start your winter chinook scouting.

Just a friendly reminder that we will be closed this coming Monday November 11, 2019 in honour of Remembrance Day.
