Pacific Angler Friday Fishing Report: January 6, 2023
« on: January 06, 2023, 06:13:19 PM »


The first week of 2023 is in the books! It’s been a pretty good start to the year for river fishing. We are hearing positive steelhead reports from the Chilliwack and though the Squamish is back to low and clear conditions, bulltrout fishing over the last 10 days has been good as the water dropped from highs after Boxing Day. We have some damp relatively warm weather in the forecast for the weekend and into next week. This is good news. Consistent 5-10mm rain should keep rivers at a nice fishing level and though it is early in the season it is worth heading out. 

In this week’s report, we have a Chilliwack and a Squamish update. The Squamish will get more water than the Chilliwack, but we do not think either will blow out.  We also wanted to feature a fly video that Andre did last week. It is a cool, small steelhead pattern that should fish well in clear conditions or as a close out fly. Have a watch of that at the end of this week’s report! 

Off the water and in the shop, we have some very good deals on items that we are carrying over from our Boxing Week Sale. If you missed making it down for the sale, we have a short list of some of the deals that are still on. Check that out below and come on down for some great savings!

Last, but not least, we still have some space for next week’s egg nymphing course with Matt on the Squamish. This course usually sells out but, we had a couple of spots open up and with some good levels of rain forecasted for early next week, the conditions could be perfect for the following weekend. We have a list of all our upcoming courses below so call in if anything in there interests you.   

On to the report!
