Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: September 9, 2022
« on: September 09, 2022, 05:49:50 PM »


Well, we thought the game was over in regard to the sockeye fishery but a late push of fish and some confusing DFO management decisions have resulted in an in river sockeye opening.  So, you can fish in the tidal and non-tidal portions of the Fraser but you cannot troll off the mouth.  Before you head out ensure you read both the Tidal and Non-Tidal Notice.   Jason has more details and thoughts on those openings and opinions below.

In other salmon river fishing news, we have a good one this week. Gavin goes over his top five float fishing presentations where he breaks out the leader board, walks through the different presentations, why you might use one over the other and more importantly where to use each setup. 

With float fishing in mind, the reports from the Chilliwack are starting to come in and it is now worth getting out. Water levels are low but there are a good number of fish in the lower river. Taylor has details on what we have heard.   

Last, but not least, the saltwater chinook fishing off the mouth of the Fraser continues to go strong and we have been blessed with a good late season. The weather was a little interesting this week and the commercial boats targeting sockeye are now out. We are not sure how both the heavy winds and the nets will affect chinook fishing. Be careful and respectful of the commercial boats and always check weather before heading out. Jason has details on the sockeye news as well as chinook updates at the end of the report.

The other fishery worth considering right now is the Capilano beach fishery. Tides are not great for fly fishing but they are pretty good for gear fishing. With low water and no rain in sight for the next 10 days, we should see more and more fish stack up. Jordan has some intel there in the saltwater section of the report.     

Its also a great time to take the kids out after school for a little local lake fishing. As temperatures drop many of our local lakes get stocked again and if you keep an eye on the Freshwater Society of BCs stocking reports you can have some really good easy family fishing in September. Eric has details on this in the freshwater section for the report. 

Finally, we have saved the best for last our Fall Salmon Sale is back!  Check out the industry and events section below for details on this upcoming sale.
