Beach/Surf Fishing in Vancouver (Kitsilano)

Hi all,

I've recently acquired a 12' surf fishing rod and I'm interested in surf fishing in Jericho Beach, Locarno Beach, Kits Beach area. I've read some things where people said it's not that good but I wanted to see if anyone had seen people fishing there or had some success in those areas. Any fishing advice about fishing from the shore in Vancouver or on Galiano Island would also be highly appreciated.

We have a few tips for fishing from the shore in Vancouver and Galiano Island.

First, make sure you have a rod that can handle the current. If you're on Galiano Island, this will be especially important because of the strong tides and currents. The best way to find out if your fishing rod is up to snuff is by practicing with it at home before going on vacation!

Next, consider getting some fishing line with a sinking bait (like a minnow), so that when you cast it out into the water, it'll sink before getting pulled back up again by the current. This makes it easier for you to reel in your catch!

If you're looking for a place that's easy and accessible, try the seawall on False Creek. It's right near downtown and has plenty of great views of the city. You can also go kayaking on the Seawall or take a boat ride through False Creek if it's too cold outside!

If you're looking for a more secluded spot, head over to English Bay Beach Park or Stanley Park (both on Burrard Inlet). These beaches are great for catching crabs and other crustaceans like shrimp.

Finally, make sure you wear good waterproof shoes because there's always an argument about whether or not sandals are okay for fishing--some people say no and others say yes!
