NOVEMBER FISHING TRIPS IN BC

THE TOP BC FISHING TRIPS FOR NOVEMBER

November is a transition month for fishing around BC, as temperatures cool and winter encroaches. The best opportunities you’ll find this time of year are generally on the southern coast of BC, targeting migrating salmon and trout on coastal rivers. There’s also some good sturgeon fishing to be had. Most of BC’s steelhead fishing operations are wrapping up for the season by early November. November offers very limited saltwater salmon fishing opportunities, with most charter companies winding down in mid October. Here’s a rundown of the October fishing opportunities you’ll find in BC…

WRAPPING UP BC’S STEELHEAD SEASON

The steelhead lodges and programs in northern BC are winding down in November, most are closing operations by the end of the first week of November. Steelhead are on the spawn by then and temperatures becoming increasingly cooler by each passing day. Best to look at a September or October date if you’d like to go steelhead fishing in BC but if all you have is November we can try to put a trip together for you. It is important to come with some realistic exceptions if on a trip in November, conditions in northern BC are generally quite cold and fishing can be tough. If you’re looking for a fly fishing trip you’re better off looking at some salmon fishing on BC’s south coast, more on that below.

NOVEMBER FISHING NEAR VANCOUVER

This would be your best option, stick close to home and fish in and around Vancouver. The first two weeks of November can be prime time for our Fall Salmon Fishing Trips on local rivers within easy driving distance of Vancouver. The majority of the fish are in these systems by November and river conditions have usually settled with cooling temps. As for saltwater salmon fishing it is really hit or miss in November, some smaller Chinook Salmon in local Vancouver waters but November is usually our slowest month for saltwater salmon fishing. If you’re not into fly fishing and want a unique to British Columbia trip, then fishing on the Fraser River for sturgeon is a cool alternative. Fraser River sturgeon fishing is usually very good in November with many of the season’s biggest fish being caught during this time.
