Fishing Report For April 9, 2011

Vancouver Saltwater Fishing

We were out fishing several days this week, fishing was not as good as last week but we did manage to find a couple small keepers in the 7 to 9 lb range. Lots of crab still in the Harbour so nobody went Home empty handed. On April 5, we took some of our friends from Vancouver Tourism out for a ride on the Fraser. We took our twin engine jet boat up the Fraser to Pitt Lake to view the Fjords but unfortunately the clouds and rain made visibility poor. We did manage to catch a sturgeon so all in all it was a great day.

If you would like to experience the lower Fraser river & Pitt Lake Wildlife Reserve, we offer private and group tours departing from the Delta Airport Hotel. For more information you can call or e-mail us or contact your hotel conseirge at Delta Airport Hotel or through Tourism Vancouver.

Sturgeon fishing on the Fraser

We have been out on the water all week, fishing has been good to excellent in the Mission area. On Thursday we landed 5 fish, lost a couple more but it was nice to see that 4 of the 5 fish were over 5ft. There has been some monsters hooked this past week so it looks like spring fishing has finally arrived. Best Bait has been Lamprey Eel and Ulichons.

Vedder Steelhead

Thomas was out on Thursday and landed 5 fish, if I could just get him to e-mail me pictures ( hope he reads this) I could show you some beauties. Water conditions were good but I’m afraid the forecast is not looking good. Thomas has been using shrimp mostly but then again you can use almost anything, the trick is finding them.
