Fraser River Salmon
Salmon fishing has remained good on the Fraser River, still lots of Pink Salmon in the river as well as a few Coho and Chinook Salmon. Water clarity is 12 to 14 inches which should be good enough to bar fish for Chinook or cast spoons and spinners for Coho. For casting Spoons for Coho, the Gibbs Ultra Lure is one of our favorite and most productive lures. These same lures in 1/3oz also work well for Pinks. For Coho use the Sterling Silver, for Coho try one with a bit of Pink in it.
Here is a big male Pink called a Humpy.
Sturgeon fishing has been very good this past week, our average charter is producing 8 to 12 fish between 3 to 8 ft. Yesterday STS Guide Rob Dieleman landed his largest of the year measuring 9 ft 3 inches, Tom came in with a 8 ft 4 a few minutes later. These are Trophy fish for our guests from UK and Alberta.
This fish measured 8 ft 4 and was caught yesterday by STS Guide Tom Pearce.
Not the best of Pics but this fish measured 9 ft 3, great job guys.
The Harrison River has been fishing well for both Pinks and the odd Coho, over the next week we will start to see many more fish enter the system including the Chum Salmon.
If you are wanting to book some of the best fishing of the year, the last two weeks in October through to mid November is best.
We have a few specials for mid Oct and November fishing, check out our Home page or our Specials Page at http://www.guidebc.com
Here is a beauty Fraser River Chinook.
The Vedder river is starting to fish well for Coho, we have been catching a few at the Mounth and anglers fishing the river are pulling out some nice fish. Best method is either float fishing with cured eggs, orange or pink wool or try fly fishing some of the slower water in the lower river. The Fall Chinook should be coming in soon as well.
