Author Topic: Any tips and fishing location in Richmond/Vancouver?

Hi guys, im new here... and relatively new fishing too...

I live in Richmond and i have been fishing at either Fraser River Park, Steveston sports fishing area (end of #3) and Jericho beach...

so far i have no luck other than LOTS AND LOTS of bullhead fish..

is there any good tips for fishing there?

1. what kind of set up would be the best way to try fishing many different kind?... cod, flounders, salmon... i have no preference but i want something different than bullheads...

2. what is a good fishing place in Richmond/ vancouver west area?....

3. what kind of bait is good?

4. lastly... because i work full time during the day..
i fish at night time mostly... is after dark okay to fish?..
i usually go around 10~midnight when it gets high tide-ish
sorry for trouble... a newbie trying to put a step into fishing


I am not familar with the Richmond area, but to my knowledge your only allowed to fish one hour after sunset? -Balraj

well even if its not night time is there any good place?.. even within vancouver area...

and is it totally not a good idea to fish in the dark?... (regardless of law)


Well, I've never fished during the dark, but there are some spots on, just go to fishing locations. Tight Lines -Balraj

Bal is right. Check out that website for suggestions.

Regarding fishing after dark: Do the regs actually say when you can fish, or do they just state that you can't use a light to attract fish? I could spend the next 15 minutes looking myself; however, I just thought I'd post the question.

I think the restrictions for daylight only show up in the salmon regs for non-tidal areas. I don't know about tidal waters though.
fishing after dark is certainly allowed in lakes. some of the wildest nights fly fishing have ended very late at night !!

Sorry about that, I am a salmon fisher. Not very familar with tidal waters. Balraj
