Vancouver Friday Fishing Report, Friday August 24

For the full report please visit the pacific angler blog or signup to the Pacific Angler Newsletter

Pacific Angler Outlook:

When things are slow it can be tough to write this report but this week we are having no problem finding great reports. Fisheries have been producing well across the province.  Primarily the local saltwater fisheries for Chinook and coho salmon and river fisheries for Chinook and trout have been producing best.
Ocean fishing was, for a better word “on fire” with Chinook coming through in big waves. This is peak migration time for this fishery and we have heard lots of big fish staging off the mouth of the Fraser River.  Things were a bit slower over the past couple of days but we expect the fishing will turn on again when another wave of Chinooks shows up off the mouth of the “Mighty” Fraser River.   

Pacific Angler also has the Labour Day Chinook Classic coming up on September 1st and 2nd.  You could be one bent rod away from the $25,000 grand prize.  We still have spots available so give us a call at the shop for details. It’s going to be an amazing event with big prizes and a Sunday night Gala Dinner prepared by legendary Chef David Hawksworth.

The Fraser River is fishing well for chinook salmon now that the river levels have reached a good level and we are into the peak of the migration.  For the river fishermen this is time of year to be on the water, whether you are into salmon or trout.  It is hard to believe that there is just one more week left in August.  It is that time of year to start thinking about the fall coho and steelhead fisheries!

Lake fishing is still a little slow but as the weather cools things will pick up. It is a good time to start preparing for a fall lake fishing trip.
The Vancouver weather forecast for the weekend looks good with a mix of sun and cloud.  The trend to take note of is the cooler weather we are experiencing with daily temperature highs ranging from 20 to 22 degrees Celsius.  It will be interesting to see how this affects our local river fishing.  The extended forecast is also calling for rain into next week.
