River Fishing Report
Updated: March 25th, 2017 @ 2:22pm
Please remember to practice ethical tactics and etiquette. Snagging or flossing fish is not fishing.
Chilliwack / Vedder River: The river has been dropping at a slow but steady rate over the last few days. Each day will be different when it comes to this fishery, but fresh fish will continue to move into this system through the end of April. All of your standard presentations continue to work this time of year. The months of March and April are also great times of the year to swing flies as well.
Fraser River: Things are starting to heat up for Sturgeon fishing as the water temperatures start to slightly warm up and the Eulachons begin their spawning migration. Eulachons tend to be one of a sturgeon’s favourite dinner items, and come April and May this is one of the baits you’ll generally want to have on a couple of your rods.
Stave River: Currently, there are some Whitefish and Cutthroat present. There will also be a couple Steelhead in the system as well, but Steelhead numbers seem to be slower than average. Fly fishing, float fishing, and lure fishing are all good options for various species.
Chehalis River: This system is dependent on water conditions.
Harrison River: It’s Cutthroat time on the Harrison. The late Winter and early Spring months are a great time to target these fish on this system with flies and lures. If you have a boat, your options will be endless, and if you are fishing from shore your options will be a bit more limited, but fish are to be had. This fishery really picks up as Salmon Fry start to pop out of the gravel.
Squamish River: River conditions will vary depending on the weather and whether precipitation falls as snow or rain. Watch for Winter Road conditions further up the river as well.
Skagit River: Closed.
