Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: May 20, 2022
« on: May 20, 2022, 07:43:36 PM »


Happy May Long Weekend! We are looking forward to a long weekend in the shop and all the nice weather that has finally arrived. With it we have a big report for you all! 

The temperature wonít crack 20 in Vancouver but we will see high teens today, Saturday and Sunday. Lake fishing is going strong and the weather looks great for Sunday even if there will be some unsettled weather today and Saturday. 

This week, we have a number of lake updates and some interesting observations from fishing trips over the last 10 days that will hopefully be useful if you are heading out this weekend.  Matt has some important simple boat gear tips with some cool gear. Every year we hear about guys and girls losing rods over the side. We saw a few over the week or so. If you are heading out and maybe renting a boat or going in someone elseís boat, a few simple pieces can change the game for fishing and will save rods.

We also have a local lake update if you canít get out of the Lower Mainland. With the cooler than normal weather the stocked lakes are still a great option. Eric has details there. 

Another great fishery to look at this weekend is carp fishing. We now have carp gear in the store!  Everything from bite alarms, boilies, bank sticks and the proper terminal tackler. Gavin knows this fishery and has a great overview on how to tackle this fishery. Check it out below. 

In the freshwater report section, we have both a Capilano River and a sturgeon update. Freshet is probably going to kick in with the warm weather this weekend but there are still options to get out as long as you are mindful of rising water.
