Vancouver BC Steelhead fishing report

Vancouver, British Columbia - Freshwater Fishing Report
Chilliwack river

Steelhead fishing has had a nice bonus this season, BIG fish! By numbers of fish there hasn't been as many as normal but the size is making up for this. Water levels have been a bit lower and that usually means that the bulk of fish are waiting for some rain and higher river levels to migrate into the system. The rains are heading our way now so I anticipate good fishing over the next 8 weeks.

Another upcoming fishery is the Bull trout fly fishing. Salmon fry will be emerging any day now and that triggers the Bull trout to enter the rivers and start their spring feeding frenzy. Book for March-April and experience some hot fly fishing on some key rivers around Vancouver.

We provide hotel pickup from downtown Vancouver hotels complete with all equipment.

See you soon!
