November Vancouver Fishing Report


We haven’t had the biggest chum run on local rivers but the fishing has been pretty good nonetheless with plenty of hard pulling fish each trip. As I write this on November 13th, there’s solid numbers of chum salmon on the lower Squamish River and decent good coho fishing on the upper stretches. Every trip we seem to be putting our clients into multiple fish, sometimes we have to work a bit harder for them. There has been some solid trout fishing for bull trout, that will only continue as we move into the winter months.

The trout have been eating mostly flesh and streamer patterns. We’ve been doing the egg thing a bit but it hasn’t proven as effective. Much nicer getting fish on the swing anyways!

As we move into winter we wanted to offer our clients a bit of a special rate, so we’re taking 15% -‘0

Remember, our trips include transportation from Vancouver, professional guide services, all wading gear and fly fishing equipment! This is also a great time of year for a multi-day Vancouver fly fishing package, an affordable and fun getaway that will put you into first class fishing with our great guide staff.

If you’d like to book a trip, call toll free is 1-877-902-3393 or email Greg at the office and we can get you fly fishing with our crew in Vancouver.


November isn’t generally a time there’s much focus on the saltwater salmon fishing scene here in Vancouver. With the relatively nice weather we’ve enjoyed so far in November there’s certainly been more opportunity to take to the water.

There has been a few winter chinook (king) salmon around on the charters we’ve done in November. As we move into December and then early season 2018 this winter chinook fishery will be the staple of our Vancouver salmon fishing charters. Obviously weather dependant but if you get a nice day there can be some beautiful scenery and fun fishing to be had.

If you’d like to book a winter Vancouver salmon fishing charter or are looking for 2018 dates, please contact.


Sturgeon fishing has been absolutely bonkers this Fall, excellent fishing on every trip we’ve done with lots and lots of big fish too!

November on our Fraser Canyon Trips has yielded plenty of larger fish, 6+ feet being the norm, which is pretty crazy. Often people don’t think of doing a BC sturgeon fishing trip in November but we definitely have some pretty awesome fishing.

We have availability throughout the rest of November and can hook you up with either of our two locations. Our Chilliwack sturgeon fishing location is the most accessible from Vancouver, only 90 minutes east of the city. Our Canyon trips depart from Hope BC, about 2 hours from Vancouver and will put you into the most remote big sturgeon water found anywhere in the world! Either are great options, you can have a look at our Vancouver sturgeon fishing trip page here for more info on what we offer. There is open availability through May, so email us or call Greg at the office toll-free 1-877-902-3393 to book a day of sturgeon fishing.
