This weekend we are at the Grande Praire Sportsman Show, the show opens at 4 pm today and runs until 5pm on Sunday. If you live in the area, please drop by and say hello.
April/May are starting to get very busy with sturgeon and steelhead charters, ocean fishing out of Vancouver is also picking up. If you are looking to get out onto the water, April & May are two great months.
Vancouver Ocean Report
Fishing has been fair to good both in Vancouver Harbour and Gulf Islands, Chinook salmon up to 20lbs are available with the occasional fish over 25lbs. Crab fishing has also been good throughout Howe Sound, Vancouver Harbour and Burrard Inlet. April /May are great months for Gulf Islands anf south end of Bowen island should be picking up at well.
Fraser River Sturgeon
Our Spring sturgeon fishery has begun, Tom, Chad & Thomas have all been out guiding for the past two weeks, good number of fish in the 2 to 4ft range with some very nice fish over 5 ft caught this past week. Tom managed to land several fish over 6ft and one over 7ft which put up a great battle. Sturgeon fishing will continue to improve as water temperatures increase, watch for pods of seals as we have heard that some ulichons are already making their way into the river.

Sturgeon fishing will greatly improve as we get closer to mid April, last season we had many 20 fish days with some spectacular fishing right through until late May.
Our schedule is beginning to fill so please call or e-mail us for available dates. Take advantage of our spring special "fill the boat"
Steelhead fishing is still very good, lots of fish in the system so this is a great time to get out. Both fly and gear fishing will produce fish, large streamer patterns for fly and sandshrimp and roe for gear fisherman works best. We are offering some combo sturgeon/steelhead trips for the month of April, give a call or e-mail for more details. April is your last month to fish for steelhead using gear, then the river switches to fly only for the month of May. We will continue to offer fly fishing steelhead trips until water conditions are not favorable.
Hells Gate Jet Boat Tours
Our first tour to Hells Gate is scheduled for April 29, come join us for our first trip up the canyon. Trip will depart from Yale lasting 3 to 4 hours. If conditions are good we may also add a little sturgeon fishing and stay out a little longer. Call to book.
