Wow, what a week for big Sturgeon. On Oct 2, our guided landed a total of 7 fish over 7ft with 2 fish over 8ft, what a day. Pink Salmon are slowing down but Coho are starting to show so over the next week we should see a complete transition to Chum, Chinook and Coho fishing. See below for detailed report.
Danny and the Boys visiting from the UK, this fish measured 8ft 4inches
Sturgeon Fishing Report
Sturgeon fishing has been good to excellent, bites are starting to get softer so anglers need to pay close attention to those rods. Tides have made a big difference in success so you want to be in the right place when these fish begin to feed. Best bait has been Salmon eggs, Salmon flesh and fresh salmon meat.
Here is another fish over 8ft landed by guests Roy Stoddard and Son, nice job guys. This was one of two fish over 8ft landed by this group.
Sturgeon fishing will continue into mid to late November, this season has been excellent with lots of big fish in the river. Over the last few weeks we have hooked several fish that are well over 10ft but we just havn’t got lucky enough to land them. I would expect that one of our lucky guests over the next few weeks will catch that trophy fish and finish the job. Good luck.
Another fish over 8ft, nice job Rob.
Although there are still fresh Pink Salmon moving into the river, it is time to switch over to Coho, Chum & Chinook Salmon. All the rain has made fishing the main stem Fraser Impossible but fishing tributary river such as the Vedder and Harrison has been good. Coho Salmon are beginning to move through the Vedder /Chilliwack System, you can fish the upper river by shore of confluence by boat. Casting spinners and Spoons is best, Colorado blades or Gibbs Crocs are producing best resluts.
Bar fishing for Chinook will be slow over the next week as water conditions are still not clear enough, if your wanting to fish for these Harrison Brutes, your best bet is to fish the confluence of the Harrison or above the Hwy Bridge.
Fishing has been fair for Sturgeon and salmon, lots of Pinks but they are getting a bit far along in their spawning, Coho are getting caught at the confluence as well as the odd Chinook.
Casting Spoons or fly fishing is your best bet. Again Gibbs Crocs or Ultra Lures for spin casting, float fish with Colorado blades or fly fishing with flash flys or rolled muddlers work best.
Over the next 6 weeks we will have some of our best fishing of the season, we still have some great dates available for last two weeks in October and first week in November.
Come join us for our last kick a the 2011 fishing season.
Tight lines and conserve your catch.
