The daffodils are popping and so is the fishing in Vancouver. Spring fishing in Vancouver offers a variety of different options and is a prime time for our Vancouver fly fishing trips, especially in March & April. There is also good sturgeon fishing through the Spring months and our Vancouver salmon charters start seeing some solid action for bigger fish! Lots of cool Vancouver fishing options as we move in to the Spring months.

Looking for a Vancouver fishing trip in March?  Here’s whats happening…

  • Salmon fishing hits its stride with more targetable numbers of fish and some nice fish being caught, in the 10+ pound class.
  • From March to May we suggest a full-day Vancouver salmon charter, this gets you into the best areas for  fishing.
  • Our Vancouver sturgeon fishing trips start in March from the Chilliwack location about 90 minutes east of Vancouver.
  • Fly fishing on Vancouver area rivers is getting better by the day, as river conditions improve into March & April.
  • If you want to plan a steelhead/trout fly fishing trip, aim for mid March to early May, it is prime time for us here in Vancouver.
  • March is the month we run our Chromer Sport Fishing Spey Casting Improvement Trip, more info here.

Looking for a Vancouver fishing trip in April?  Here’s whats happening…

  • You can count on January being the coldest month of the year in Vancouver and our surrounding area. Fishing options are limited.
  • Salmon fishing charters start seeing the first push of better numbers of winter chinook (king) salmon moving into local waters.
  • The salmon are not big (averaging 5-10 pounds) but it probably is the best January option for fishing in Vancouver.
  • Winter fly fishing continues to focus on fishing for bull trout, we can have some good fishing if rivers are in good shape.

Looking for a Vancouver fishing trip in February?  Here’s whats happening…

  • Salmon fishing in Vancouver is usually very good during May, with solid numbers of chinook salmon off the southern Gulf Islands.
  • We suggest one of the 10 hour full day salmon charters, those will get you into the best local salmon fishing from Vancouver.
  • Good sturgeon fishing at our Chilliwack location, but the Fraser River water levels do start rising by mid May.
  • On the fly fishing front early May is an awesome time for a trip with the Squamish River is usually fishable until the first week of May.
  • Smaller rivers stay in shape longer for fly fishing, but by later May most rivers become to high for good fishing.
