Vancouver fly fishingFISHING REPORT

WHAT FISHING IS HAPPENING NOW?

If you head over to our Chromer Sport Fishing Blog you can see our latest Vancouver fishing reports. We try to get a fishing report up every month, sometimes we get busy and miss a month, sorry! If you’re wondering how the fishing is over a specific period you can also visit our other website, vancouverfishingtrips.com or simply send us an inquiry, we’ll give you an honest up-to-date report.
The super condensed Vancouver fishing update goes something like this. Summer months you have solid saltwater salmon opportunities, great sturgeon fishing on the Fraser River and you can swing flies for pink salmon on odd years. Fall’s focus is hitting the rivers, chasing coho and chum salmon. There’s also some really good opportunities on the Fraser for the biggest sturgeon of the year. Winter has some angling for winter chinook salmon and river trips for bull trout. If you’re here skiing, we also offer guided trips from Whistler. Spring brings a ramping up of saltwater charters and the chance at a steelhead on the Squamish River.
That’s the short n sweet fishing report, hope it helps!

FISHING CHARTER UPDATE

As we welcome the 2021 fishing season there are some notes regarding regulations. Vancouver’s local waters were regulated heavily by the Department of Fisheries & Oceans in 2020. These fishing regulations proved hard for us to navigate and came to the surprise of some of our clients. We are as transparent as possible about our fishing charters. If fishing regulations change we will let you know and will try to keep this website updated as much as possible. Thank you for your understanding.

Fly Fishing Regulations

For Lake & River Trips

There are some fishing regulation changes that may affect our fly fishing trips for 2021. Those are still being worked through for the Vancouver area. We will know about these Vancouver fishing regs by April 2021. Thank you for your understanding.

STURGEON REGULATIONS

BIG BITES ON THE FRASER RIVER

At this time there are no Vancouver fishing regulations affecting sturgeon trips. We will keep you updated if in-season regulation changes occur.

VANCOUVER FISHING FAQ’S

ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR CHARTERS

We appreciate time is a valuable commodity and we want to make sure you feel great about planning a day of Vancouver fishing with us. Here are a few question to the most common questions we get about fishing in Vancouver.

WHERE CAN WE GO FISHING IN VANCOUVER?

There's a ton of places to go freshwater and saltwater fishing near Vancity. Our guides know them all. There's very few big cities anywhere that have the variety of fishing we enjoy right at our doorstep!

WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS?

It rains a lot in Vancouver, so our charters run rain or shine. If weather or water conditions simply won't afford a good trip we happily offer a refund or rescheduling of your trip.

WHERE DO WE GET A FISHING LICENSE?

When you book your Vancouver fishing we'll send you a link to buying your freshwater or saltwater license online, it's super easy. BC fishing licenses are relatively inexpensive and price based on residency.

WHERE CAN WE CATCH SALMON?

There is two options for salmon fishing in Vancouver. There is saltwater fishing, targeting salmon in the ocean. Our salmon charters are offered year round. There is also river fishing for salmon, that takes place in October & November.

WILL WE SEE WILDLIFE?

Sometimes. On salmon charters we sometimes see orca (killer) whales in the Gulf Islands. On our fly fishing trips its not uncommon to see elk, deer and if you're lucky even a bear or two.
