Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: June 17, 2022
« on: June 17, 2022, 05:09:01 PM »

It is family fishing weekend and Father’s Day! The bad news is that we are in for another unseasonably cool weekend. The good news is that the cool spring is making for some excellent fishing conditions that are well worth taking note of. 

If you haven’t heard of Family Fishing Weekend, it is an annual celebration of fishing that coincides with the Father’s Day weekend each year. This year, the three-day event falls this weekend from Friday June 17th to Sunday June 19th.   All basic fresh and saltwater licences are free this weekend so it is a great opportunity get together with family and friends and try fishing! Check out all of the details here.

In this week’s report, we will look at a couple fisheries that are affected by this cool weather. Taylor has a bass report where we continue to see a “strange” season. The spawning season has been extended in some lakes due to the cold but in others it has finished, making for good but unpredictable fishing. 

We will also look at interior lake fishing. The reports on days that have settled weather have been excellent. Good chironomid hatches are still coming off, most water temps are cool but we are finally seeing more diverse hatches. 

On the saltwater front, we are hearing the first whispers of coho. It is still not “hot” but it is well worth getting out. We will have more details on this in next week’s report but as of the writing of this report, the winds are looking good for the back half of the weekend, so get out there.

Lastly, we take a look at water levels. Many of our streams are at peak freshet right now. That puts them well behind schedule. Ethan has an update on the Fraser and Matt has some more details on the Chilliwack fishery where he has numbers on past stocking reports that will affect this upcoming salmon season.
