Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report August 19, 2022
« on: August 19, 2022, 10:03:57 PM »


Another perfect-looking weekend of fishing weather is incoming! When we say perfect weather, you might be looking out the window on Friday scratching your head. If the weather man is on his game, you will see clouds and even a little rain Friday. This is a good thing to keep water cool and fish happy. Rolling into Saturday and pushing right through next week we will see low to mid 20s with a mix of sun and cloud. It also looks as though the wind in the strait will be low so it should be good for crossing. Always check before you head out because this can change fast.  There are lots of good sites to check we use the government site for an overall picture and windy for a more detailed one. 

The big question with this solid weather is where to go? August is a funny month and as access issues to fisheries seem to keep coming, it is sometimes hard to plan a trip. This week we have great tides for beach fishing, local coho and chinook fishing in the saltwater is doing well and our trout river reports have been solid but we also have two cool trips that can be done within a half days travel of Vancouver. Casey hit the Campbell River last week for some excellent pink salmon fishing and Gavin also travelled to the island and headed up to Alberni inlet for some chinook and bottom fishing. We have short reports on both of these trips if you were ever curious about tackling one of them for yourself.

We also have short saltwater report this week including a sockeye update. There is some encouraging news but it is still very complicated and openings are too hard to call. Check out more details in Jason Saltwater update at the end of the report.
