Birkenhead River fishing report August 22, 2013
Pemberton BC Fishing Report provided by Pemberton Fish Finder. The Birkenhead River is sitting at a very nice level right now. This means good access for wading and of course great fishing. This River has some of the best fly fishing in BC. The Chinook Salmon are still present and the Sockeye have started their spawning migration upstream. For fly fishing, try minnow patterns on a sink tip as well as stonefly nymphs (smaller nymphs have been working well) and egg patterns. On the dry line try black ant patterns, elk hair caddis and the adult golden stonefly (new at spud valley). If you are spin fishing, use medium size spoons and size 5 and smaller spinners. Always have wet hands when carefully releasing these fish. Tight lines!
Anderson Lake Fishing report August 22, 2013
Pemberton BC Fishing Report provided by Pemberton Fish Finder. Anderson Lake has been fishing well at the creek mouths. Spinners, spoons and plugs have all been producing big Rainbow and Bull Trout. The best results for trolling have been down between 40′ – 60 feet. The Sockeye have started their spawning run up Gates Creek and are not to be targeted but, they have hungry Rainbow and Bull Trout in their wake. There are approximately 3000 sockeye in the spawning channel and 7000 in Gates Creek. On the fly use egg and minnow patterns on a sink tip. Good results on spinning gear have been baited hooks sunk to the bottom using an ample amount of weight and drifted in the current.
