Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: November 15, 2019
« on: November 15, 2019, 09:20:41 PM »


Nasty weather inbound?! We have a question mark here because the weather reports over the last 3 weeks have forecast bad weather multiple times but it really never came to pass. That said this one looks like a doozy and we expect it will be hard for the weatherman to get it wrong.

We have a massive dump of rain coming on Saturday and if the numbers hold true it will affect all our major river systems in a big way. Right now, they are forecasting 50-70mm and have a weather warning in effect up in Squamish with less but still significant ran for the Fraser Valley as well. It is rare to see a weather report of this magnitude. We are concerned not only for fishing conditions but with relatively high temperatures for this time of year there could be possible flooding.

If this weather comes it will blow out the Squamish, Vedder and Chehalis and we donít recommend being out there on Saturday. The effects will probably last into next week. With that in mind when it settles after the storm it should be amazing fishing and probably the last major kick at the can for the river salmon season. As always keep an eye on the weather updates. Matt has a little trick on what he looks for when watching weather like this in the video format of the report and we have more details on the specific river systems below.

Matt also has some important fish politics updates in the video report so you make sure to check that out here:

Itís rare that we say donít go Fishing but we think it is a safe bet at least for Saturday to be very careful and pay close attention to the water levels. If you are stuck for something to do this weekend you can hit the vise and or do some planning for upcoming trips. With this in mind, we have a fly video that Matt did for both high water late season coho and low water late season coho.

If you get sick of the cold dreary weather, we have a very cool warm water trip to Christmas Island planned for 2020.  Check out the Industry Events and Updates Section below for all of the details!   

Also, we have a handful of spots for our Steelhead Fly Tying Jam Session so if you want a spot check out the details in the event section and make sure to reserve your spot.
