Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: September 16, 2022
« on: September 16, 2022, 11:26:10 PM »


It is a big week! DFO has finally opened sockeye fishing in the ocean! Yesterday was opening day and our guide boats all came back with sockeye.  Itís late in the run so fishing isnít lights out but we are hopeful that we should have good fishing going forward.   On the sockeye river fishing front, reports were not great when they opened it last week but we are still optimistic that this was because of the large commercial openings. With roughly 900,000 fish still in the ocean we expect better fishing this weekend if you are heading up to Chilliwack and Hope. 

With all the confusing regulations, it is more important than ever that we support the folks who are working tirelessly through groups like the Sports Fishing Institute and the Public Fishery Alliance, advocating for access to sustainable public fisheries. With this in mind, we wanted to share a great opportunity for you to support the Public Fishery Alliance via their online auction that just went live! There are some cool things to bid on, including a guided raft trip with the PA team. All of the funds raised will go to holding the decision makers accountable when the decisions donít follow the science or the best interests of the fish. Check it out here. 

The last big news is it is a SALE WEEKEND at Pacific Angler! Everything in the store is on SALE! with a couple exceptions. This sale is specifically designed to get you ready for the upcoming river season, restock the gear you used through the summer and with the sockeye opening and saltwater chinook fishing still going strong it is a great time to you can make sure you have the trolling gear you need for the next couple weeks. 

The Sales List came out yesterday so if you missed it be sure to head to our site to check it out and come down to the store Saturday or Sunday.
