Fishing Report November 24, 2018

Fishing reports for Vancouver - Fraser River - Vedder River - Squamish River - Harrison River

some urgent news first !!

The Heart of the Fraser is in peril

This precious stretch of the river between Mission and Hope, less than two hours drive from Vancouver, provides prime spawning habitat for salmon and white sturgeon and serves as a nursery for millions of baby salmon every year. Two large islands in the Heart of the Fraser are under imminent threat. Herrling and Carey Islands not only provide a large amount of vital fish habitat but are an important area for fishing and outdoor recreation.

Developers have applied to build bridges to these islands which, if approved, would lead to the destruction of critical fish habitat for agriculture or subdivisions. This could also increase flood risk in the surrounding communities. These bridges must not be approved!



Fishing Report Hilites

Salmon Fishing is great for Coho and Chum !

» The Squamish River is providing very good salmon fishing opportunities for Coho and Chum!
This is a perfect fly fishing venue but casting lures will still yield good results. The Squamish will fish nicely right to the end of November. Hotel pickup from Vancouver or Whistler is available year round for this river.

Visit our Salmon fishing page or Fly Fishing page to reserve your trip.
