Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: April 29, 2022
« on: April 29, 2022, 10:22:39 PM »

Things continue to be unseasonably cool but the upside is that it has made for some great fishing weather. Lakes are icing off in the interior and the reports we are hearing are excellent. In this week’s report we will cover our usual fishing updates along with a special feature on sounders for lake fishing. Jason has taken his knowledge of sounders from the saltwater world and applied it to the shallow water game. If you have been thinking about putting a sounder on your boat you will not want to miss this article.

For saltwater anglers bottom fishing across the straight opens on Sunday (May 1)! We are stocked up in the store with paddle tails, drop jigs and ball weights. Jason is back this week with a saltwater update on where you can catch and release salmon as well as have fun with bottom fishing in the same day. Check it out at the end of this week’s report.

On the river front the Squamish continues to stay in shape out in the valley conditions continue to be good though areas are closing on May 1st up the Chilliwack River.  There should still be good fishing opportunities on both systems for at least the next week or two. With cooler temperatures forecasted to continue until the 10th of May both these fisheries are well worth a look.

The cutthroat fishing has also been very good. We were concerned about fry numbers in the early part of the spring but we are seeing good numbers now and with a late fry hatch the cutthroat are hungry. If you do not want to head out of the lower mainland this weekend the cutthroat spots are well worth a hike right now.

Last but not least were back in May with another offering of our Introduction to Fly Fishing course and Andre is back in the shop for his Tying Beach Patterns course.  Call the shop at 604.872.2204 to sign up for these courses today.
