Oct 8 fishing report update

Great week on the water

Fishing has definitely improved over the past week, although sturgeon fishing is still up and down the past few days have greatly improved. Lots of salmon pouring into the Fraser and tributaries such as the Stave, Vedder, and Harrison. Although water is still low on these rivers, the salmon are at a point where they must begin to enter the rivers for their annual spawning ritual.

Harrison Chum Salmon caught near the confluence

Fraser Sturgeon

Sturgeon fishing has been excellent the past few days, best fishing we have seen in quite some time. Yesterday most of our boats boated at least 10 fish and our high boat was 22 fish landed. All I can say is "About time fishing picked up" Lamprey eel is still working well but salmon roe was the ticket for some of our guides.

Although nothing real big was landed yesterday, there was a few 6 and 7footers taken to the beach.

Nice 7ft 4 sturgeon landed near Mission.

Sturgeon fishing is just heating up, lots of good fishing still to come, in fact some of our best sturgeon fishing of the year is still ahead of us. Because of the lack of rain and late returns of salmon, late October through to end of November is going to be our best fishing of the season. We still have lots of great dates so give us a call and we will get you booked in.

November Sturgeon Special

Salmon Fishing

Salmon fishing has really picked up the last 48 hours, lots of Coho around on the Fraser, Harrison and Vedder Confluence. Yesterday we had one group boat 8 coho and 1 Chinook casting spoons and spinners and one of our groups from Ireland landed some Coho and even a small Chinook on the fly.

Chum Salmon are really starting to pour into the Fraser Valley, lots of fish in the Fraser as well as the tributaries such as Stave, Vedder and Harrison rivers. With the long weekend almost over the fishing has been busy but nice to see some fish around finally. Next week should be a bit quieter on the water and we are really looking forward to the next 30 – 45 days as we should see some of the best fishing of the season.

Don’t be afraid of the word " November"

Why is it that it is so hard to convince people to fish in November? Scared of the colder weather perhaps? Don’t be, November offers some if not the best fishing of the season for sturgeon and salmon fishing can be very good as well. All of our boats are heated, covered and we have waders for everyone if needed. Come join us for some of the best fishing of the season, the boys are ready to catch some monster fish, Maybe even that record fish?

Canyon trips are still heading out daily, although we are booked solid for Most of the October, we still have some dates available for Last week of October and first two weeks of November. The rapids are getting big, Saddle Rock is rockin and Little Hells Gate is giving us a ride of a lifetime. Come join me for an experience you will not soon forget.

The views in the canyon are incredible, a trip of a lifetime for sure.

As mentioned above, the best fishing is still to come, come join us for the best of the best of 2012.


Have a great week.
