Pacific Angler Outlook:
The hot weather made for some great fishing the last few days. Although the weather has also brought a few adversities for different fisheries around the province. Wind, whales and more wind slowed down the saltwater. Next week the weather is expected to return to seasonal norms – Check out the Vancouver Forecast.
The forecast for this weekend is a bit cooler but don’t put away your fishing rod.Please read below for the marine forecast. This is a great resource to check the conditions before you head out on the salt chuck.
Environment Canada – Georgia Basin Marine Report
The Georgia Basin has been experiencing some strong Northwesterlies for the past week. This has resulted in some very challenging fishing conditions. However, the forecast for this afternoon is for the wind to diminish and becoming southeast. This is good news for the angler looking to get out on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
Throughout the weekend you can expect a south east wind ranging from light to 10 to 15 knots. Right now they are calling for some stronger south east winds on Monday. However that forecast is likely to change as we get closer to holiday Monday. It pays to check the latest forecast to get the most accurate weather conditions.
There is nothing worse than knowing that the are fish out there but you just can’t get at them because of weather conditions. That’s what we saw this week with heavy winds keeping most self-respecting anglers off the water. A few braved the seas and caught fish. The Salty Dawg (our saltwater guide boat) pulled out of the harbour on Sunday and hit a triple before all four rods were down. Unfortunately all three fish were lost.
Do not despair the wind should die through the weekend. The Pacific Angler team is heading out on Monday for a day off and we are guiding both Saturday and Sunday so give us a shout for a report from the water. Or check out the Guide Journal for a fully detailed report.
