Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: January 10, 2020
« on: January 10, 2020, 09:21:09 PM »


Go fishing now because winter is coming! That is the theme of this week’s report. We heard better steelhead reports from the Vedder this week, some solid reports front the Squamish and a few other fisheries were in good shape.  The news this week is the weather on the horizon. In the next 2 days we have snow in varying degrees forecasted for the region and starting Sunday we have a substantial cold spell. With temps at night below –10 in both Chilliwack and Squamish we can expect rivers to plummet and fishing to get challenging. In this week’s report we look at the major systems with some predictions on water levels.  The one thing to remember with very cold temperatures is that fish that are feeding like bulltrout will shut down completely while fresh steelhead will still be active when things get cold. Use this to plan your week of fishing.

With the cold weather in mind we have an update on ice fishing. Sterling has been ice fishing since he was a kid and he has some fresh reports from the interior and some tips on how he sets up his ice fishing rig.

Lastly, we have been getting asked a ton of questions about prawning and we have a 101 piece on setting up a prawning string.  If you have a boat, have never done it before or want to tweak your existing setup, check out the saltwater section where Jordan lays out all the key pieces to get you in the game.  Jason also has a winter chinook update.
