DECEMBER FISHING BRITISH COLUMBIA

FISHING OPTIONS DURING DECEMBER IN BC

Is there fishing in BC in December? You bet there is! It obviously isn’t prime fishing season but we offer a few fun trips that will get you out on the water and into some cool fishing.

TRIPS CLOSE TO VANCOUVER

From Vancouver we offer two trips in December; our guided fly fishing trips and our guided Vancouver salmon fishing charters. December fly fishing is focused on the Squamish River north of Vancouver, where we have a healthy population of Bull Trout we can fish for in December. There are also some rainbow trout. Our guided Vancouver fly fishing trips are offered year round and include transportation from Vancouver. December fly fishing consists of fishing egg and flesh patterns, to mimic the remnants of the Falls salmon runs. As for saltwater salmon fishing in Vancouver we are running charters all winter long. This is a fun time of year for a trip, we can drop crab and prawn traps and generally have consistent fishing for Winter Chinook salmon all through December and January.

STEELHEAD FISHING IN DECEMBER

If you’re looking for a winter steelhead fishing trip in BC, you’ll want to venture to the steelhead rivers of Vancouver Island, as they get their first push of steelhead starting in early December. Keep in mind this is a very fickle fishery, timing is everything and you need the right weather and river conditions for success. There is also some steelhead fishing on the islands of Haida Gwaii, off of BC’s northern coast. This is a trip for serious anglers looking for a unique BC fishing adventure. Remember, you’ll want to manage expectations when it comes to Winter steelhead fishing. It is not for first time anglers and if you’re itching for a steelhead trip, you’ll want to look at some Spring months for a greater chance at success.

DECEMBER FISHING TIPS…

In conclusion, if you’re looking for some Winter fishing in December first off remember to come with some realistic exceptions. Fishing can be really good, it can also be tough, especially in extremely cold conditions. The options are also limited, the best fishing is in the southern region of BC, around Vancouver. The rest of the province is generally in the depth of Winter and don’t offer anglers much in the way of quality experiences.
