Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: May 6, 2022
« on: May 06, 2022, 05:50:51 PM »


We have a big report for everyone this week!  First off, if you have been outside at all this week you will know the weather continues to be cool with rain this weekend and a warming trend at the back end of next week.  As we’ve noted before, the cooler weather is actually great for fishing. There are a ton of options right now if you are looking to get out.

In this week’s report, we have some fun sturgeon fishing info. from Ethan who has been hitting the Lower Fraser bank fishery and it has been excellent. He goes over everything you need to know from tackle to eulachan rigging. Check it out If you want to try this very easy and cool fishery. 

We also have a piece on how to fish lakes that are not your classic shallow interior style lakes. These lakes are the ones that are super deep and thus, are often hard to fish. If you live near one of these coastal style lakes there is hope. Taylor goes over the gear you need and the general strategies. It is quite different from classic shallow lake strategies but, with some determination, they can pay off big if you get them dialed in. 

Though the above fisheries are great niche options, Interior lake fishing reports continue to stream in. It has been good and we are hearing ice off reports from as far north as Williams Lake. Sterling goes over everything we have heard, plus, he has some cool observations from his outings last week. 

For Lower Mainland river anglers, we have a report this week on the Chilliwack from Gavin where he covers what you can expect heading into May on the river.  Matt talks a little about the Squamish and Harrison in the video report.

On the saltwater fishing front, bottom fishing has been good since it opened across the strait last Sunday.  The marine forecast has made the crossing a little challenging some days but it has been worth the trip if you can get across.   We will be back next week with a full saltwater report.   Note the commercial prawn fishery opened yesterday so that will make the prawning a little more challenging.
