April is probably our best month for winter-run steelhead fishing in British Columbia and our trips in southern BC and northern BC are busy chasing chrome steelhead fresh off of open ocean. The weather has warmed significantly in April, ice starts coming off lakes and river levels begin to rise with the snow melt. April definitely is an exciting time for fishing in BC! Here’s some options for an April fishing trip…
Winter in Whistler isn’t all about skiing, there’s some really good fishing to be had as well. The most popular is a trout trip to the Squamish River, about 45 minutes south of Whistler where temperatures are significantly warmer and fishing is good.
There’s often some good chinook salmon fishing to be had right from Vancouver. Wintering fish feed on stacked bait and it’s also a great time to drop crab and prawn traps!
For serious steelhead anglers there are options in Haida Gwaii and Vancouver Island for winter-run steelhead. Vancouver Island is a popular destination in January, with early season fish rolling in to local rivers. Keep in mind timing these trips can be finicky, but if you hit it right fishing can be lights out!
Getting anglers like you into first-class fishing trips is what we’ve done for over a decade.
We look forward to earning your business.
