WINTER FISHING IN VANCOUVER

YOUR OPTIONS FOR A WINTER FISHING TRIP

Winter isn’t always a time people are thinking of a fishing trip but there definitely are a few cool (no pun intended) fishing options around Vancouver during the winter month. Surprisingly enough our Vancouver salmon fishing charters can see good fishing and our Vancouver fly fishing trips are usually fairly consistent for trout fishing on local rivers. If you’re looking for a Vancouver fishing trip in anytime from December to February best to drop us a note and see what current conditions are, we’ll be happy to give you an updated winter fishing report.

DECEMBER FISHING

IN VANCOUVER BRITISH COLUMBIA

Yes it’s Winter on BC’s south coast but generally we have milder temperatures and lots of wetter weather, not so much snow. What does that mean, it means fishing options are still open through the Winter months and certainly in December, here is what’s happening…

  • Quality fishing is dependant on weather, warmer weather = better fishing.

  • Decent Winter chinook fishing on our saltwater charters.

  • Options to go crab and prawn fishing too, which is always fun.

  • Good bull trout fishing on our Squamish River guided trips.

  • Our sturgeon fishing trips see slower fishing.

“Everyone and everything at Chromer was excellent, helpful and just a absolute pleasure for the both of us.”

JANUARY FISHING

IN VANCOUVER BRITISH COLUMBIA

January is when we see our coldest temperatures of the year in the Vancouver area and that does have an effect on our local fishing options. If you’re itching to get out on a January fishing trip with us, here’s what you need to know…

  • No lie, fishing options are limited in January.

  • Pretty decent saltwater salmon fishing for Winter chinooks.

  • A salmon charter is the best bet for a January trip.

  • Rivers are low, we still can go fly fishing but access can be tough with snow.

  • Sturgeon fishing is on hold until at least mid February.

“Fishing was the one thing my husband wanted to do when I suggested a trip to Vancouver. We booked a half day charter through Chromer. From the first email I sent to Yos, Chromer was responsive and professional. The trip was a great time. This is a beautiful part of the world and Yos and my husband’s Captain Ty did a great job meeting all of our expectations. We will use Chromer again if we are lucky enough to make it back to Vancouver!”

FEBRUARY FISHING

IN VANCOUVER BRITISH COLUMBIA

February is when we start seeing some better fishing conditions after the Winter months. That said February can be a tough month to call, with varying conditions. If its a cold Winter then February fishing options won’t be great, but a warmer Winter we’ll definitely have better fishing oppportunities around Vancouver.

  • More consistent numbers of salmon move into the local Vancouver waters to feed.

  • Sturgeon fishing picks up but dependant on Fraser River water conditions.

  • Fly fishing trips start seeing their first winter steelhead starting in mid February.

  • Winter fly fishing continues to focus on fishing for bull trout.

  • Contact us for an up-to-date February fishing report.
