Author Topic: Help, visiting BC any spots to recommend?

I'm a making a trip to Vancouver in Dec and will be staying with some friends in Burnaby. As I am a novice at fishing and also new to the area can you all recommend some saltwater spots nearby that i can drop a line. I've never fished in Pacific waters and only am familiar with the South China Sea.

Do advise also on the type of tackle to rig, bait and hook size. I'm using a open face spinning reel. You advise would be appreciated!

btw, I saw a thread to fish under Surrey Skytrain. Is it good?
The Yak

Not much going on in December. Maybe some sturgeon fishing or Winter steelhead but not in the ocean. These are river fish.

I'm not an ocean fisherman so someone else on this board might have more info for you.

you sould go below the lions gate bridge.

i have cought many salmon there in december

i was using roe with spinners and hitting spring salmon.

Good fish i would try anywhere else


Hi Cohoslayer,

thanks for you advise. Will definitely check it out.

May i ask how did you rig your tackle and what size weights did you use? Also where can I get roe for bait?
