Fraser Valley, British Columbia - Freshwater Fishing Report
Chilliwack-Vedder river
Brian McKinlay

A great season so far for Steelhead in southwest British Columbia. The season started late December on the famous Chilliwack-Vedder river and is now in full swing with another 2 months left!

We have many clients going home with a great photo of a wild Steelhead or taking home a keeper fish.

We are seeing many fresh fish enter the river daily and everyone we have landed has been absolutely mint condition!

Mostly we fish with drift technique, my best producer is a one of my custom tied jigs under a clear float. It's a top producer of fish but we also fly fish for Steelhead too.

Upcoming fisheries are the late winter and spring Bull trout, mostly fly fishing on the majestic Squamish river 1 hour north of downtown Vancouver.

If you are in Van on a business trip and need us to guide you we provide hotel pickup.

Reliable and proven service since 1996.

Best fishes! - Brian McKinlay :-)
