February marks the beginning of Spring in British Columbia and the start of some exciting fishing to be had around the province. River levels are still low but are on the rise as temperatures warm and fish become more active. Coastal steelhead and trout fishing are among our most popular options during February.
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.
