In Vancouver until 2/19. My daughter lives here now and I expect to be up 2 to 3x a year. Thinking of fishing opportunities and tackle needs for this area.
Heading to Berry's Bait and tackle on Westminster Highway to check out more local info. Any suggestion as to where to fish, what species and when? Also thinking of buy some gear to leave with my daughter's future in-laws. Will not have a boat so limited to shore or party boat.

Talk to the locals,  maybe plan your visits around the different fish runs, and seasons,  weather is more favorable past spring.   Beachcombing for solitude can be year around. Wink

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

 Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.

Alan: I told Chad to say hi to you at the show, glad he saw you. He runs a good outfit, everything included in his package (including fish processing). His reels are always in great shape as a great guy in Hardy services them ! Grin

Ben has organized a trip already with another operator,  but I'd like to try fishing with him someday.

No party boats here-Kevin from Bonnie Lee on Granville Island will do a split charter if there's interest.

I know Berry's of old the store isn't what it once was Pacific Net & Twine in Steveston village is the place for saltwater tackle locally.

Pacific Angler-More of a fly shop I rarely buy there but it's usually worth a stop

FWIW-April & May are two of the Best months locally and if the wind dies down action can be quite steady.

July, August & September off the beaches in West Vancouver casting to Coho &  this year Pink Salmon try to hit low tide in the AM.
