FALL FISHING IN VANCOUVER

A condensed Fall fishing report from Vancouver BC for October and November.

Summer may be winding down but a lot of our fishing ramps up big time in September and October.  These are prime months for salmon and sturgeon fishing near Vancouver.  September is often when we see our biggest chinook salmon of the year on our Vancouver Salmon Charters and our Fall fly fishing trips are all about chasing migrating fish on wild rivers. Sturgeon fishing in September and October is when we see some of the most consistent fishing for big fish. Here’s a break down of Fall fishing in Vancouver.

OCTOBER FISHING IN VANCOUVER

FALL FISHING REPORT VANCOUVER BC

  • Vancouver salmon fishing charters are still running but the majority of salmon have moved into local rivers to spawn making for slower fishing on the saltwater. There can be some decent late season chinook salmon fishing off the mouth of the Capilano River, depending on water levels.
  • Sturgeon fishing remains very good at both our Chilliwack and Hope locations, a great time to book a trip
  • Fly fishing on local Vancouver rivers is still in its prime with chum salmon fishing and the influx of coho (silver) salmon into local rivers.  We offer day trips from Vancouver and also our Fall salmon fishing packages on local rivers which are always popular.

Lots of fly fishing action near Vancouver in October, especially for big chum salmon like this one caught on the Squamish River.

NOVEMBER FISHING IN VANCOUVER

FALL FISHING REPORT VANCOUVER BC

  • Slow time for saltwater salmon fishing near Vancouver as now the majority of salmon have made their way into the freshwater rivers and are getting ready to spawn.
  • Fall fishing for sturgeon stays solid right into mid/late November as fishing pressure on the Fraser becomes minimal.  Big sturgeon are on the feed before they become more dormant through the winter months.
  • Fly fishing on local Vancouver rivers is usually very good for chum salmon and coho salmon well into November. There is also some good trout fishing as trout feed on salmon eggs.  Choose a fly fishing trip from either Vancouver or Whistler, we have a team of guides at both locations.

A big part of our Fall fly fishing in Vancouver is teaching our guests how to use two handed fly rods and introducing them to spey casting for salmon.
