May and June Fishing in Whistler Squamish Lillooet and Pemberton British Columbia Canada
It has been a while since doing our last fishing report, so we have a bit of catching up to do. Being busy is a good problem to have. Right now the Rivers throughout the Sea to Sky corridor are entering freshet, this means that River fishing will be limited to River conditions. That being said our Jet boats provide the Best option for River fishing right now, there are also opportunities for walk and wade tours. Walk and wade tours will only be offered on side channels on smaller rivers to keep people safe. When the Rivers are High there are other fantastic fishing opportunities that include;
- Stillwater Fly Fishing via Belly Boats.
- Fishing large lakes via powerboat for Trophy Trout.
- Sturgeon Fishing.
- Salmon Fishing via Jet Boat.
- Creek Mouth Fishing on Large Lakes Via Powerboat.
- Steelhead fishing with Drift rods *Month of May only.
- Heli fishing.
Fishing in Pemberton BC
Right now is a great time to fish Lakes in Pemberton BC. There are options for River fishing, depending on River conditions. While the Rivers are high in Pemberton, BC they provide a great food source when they enter the large lakes. Access to these creek mouths can only be done via powerboat. Another great fishing option is Trolling for trophy sized Trout, It is not uncommon to catch Trout in excess of 10 LBS each and every fishing Trip. Trolling tours are a great option for families with children, it’s high pace with a huge success rate.
Chinook Salmon fishing trips are offered throughout the Months of May and June and are done via Jet Boat while Trolling and Spin fishing are the preferred methods for Chinook Salmon fishing. There are lots of opportunities to see Wildlife and incredible scenery when out on these fishing adventures, be sure to have a fully charged camera before heading out.
Pemberton offers some of the best Stillwater fly fishing in British Columbia, Canada. Our fly fishing guides are dialed in! Learn how to chironomid fly fish or how to use nymphs effectively. There are lots of small remote lakes to choose from that are all set in some of the most spectacular settings in the World. We have a couple trophy lakes that hold Trout in excess of 5 LBS. Very fun on light gear.
Fishing in Squamish BC
While the Rivers are high in Squamish BC we will only be offering Drift fishing and spin fishing tours for the months of May and June while Steelhead fishing is at it’s peak. As the month of June roles in you will start to see some Chinook in the local waters and lots of Bull Trout join the mix during that time of the year gorging on salmon fry. That being said they are easily fooled by using small spoons and spinners.
Fishing in Whistler BC
Whistler holds some fantastic fishing for Trout, all of the small lakes in Whistler are stocked annually this keeps the fishing very good. The lakes have all turned over and are free of ice now. This winter was abnormally cold and the snow pack on the valley floor was immense this year. As a result the lakes are very cold and the fish are very hungry. A couple lakes worth checking out are Alta Lake and my favorite is Green Lake. Green lake has the largest fish in Whistler and is easily fished via the many creek mouths that feed it. A simple look on google maps will show you the creeks that feed the lake and the trails that will get you to them.
Fishing in Lillooet BC
It is that time of year that the monsters from the Fraser River come out to play as Lillooet offers some of the best Sturgeon fishing in the World. It is not uncommon to catch numerous Sturgeon each and every fishing trip. Our sturgeon fishing guides are dialed in and the fishing has been great. The sturgeon above was caught May 9th 2019 and measure 7’2″. This was 1 fish of 6 caught this day on a half day Sturgeon fishing trip. Not a Bad Day! Although Sturgeon fishing can be done by shore, we highly recommend jumping in one of our jet boats for the best experience possible.
