Spring Fishing Vancouver Island

As spring arrives we turn our attention away from Steelhead fishing Vancouver Island and move into the trout catch. May is a magical time of year when the bug hatches begin to entice trout to rise for a meal. This fishery continues into the summer months, when the weather and water temperatures are too warm for trout fishing. Hot temperatures are very stressful for the fish. However, if conditions are just right with enough water to keep the fish cool in the deep pools, summer run steelhead can be targeted while enjoying the beautiful sunshine.
