July 3 Fishing Update

Some great fishing out there today, we had charters going out from 3 locations fishing for both salmon and sturgeon. Grant over at Whales Reach Lodge was hammering on salmon, our trip out of the Delta Airport Hotel produced 2 nice hatchery Coho and our Fraser River Sturgeon charter landed 2 fish over 6ft in just minutes of each other.

Nice work Grant, if anyone is looking for a great salmon/Halibut trip the next 6 to 8 weeks is primetime.


Great day on the Fraser even though it started slow, we ended with a back to back 6ft and 6’7″ sturgeon’s. My best bites came on Lamprey eel  and Eulichon but the scent of the day was garlic, once I soaked my baits I went from no bites to 5 fish so scent was definitely the answer yesterday.


Not only is the ocean and river producing good results but the fly fishing for trout is also very good. Anyone looking for a last minute trip we are on the water daily and working hard to put fish in the boat. Small spoons ( Gibbs G-Force) trolling in shallow water 20 to 40 feet produced the Coho.


This weekend looks like it will be good for all 3 species of fish, if you are looking for salmon, sturgeon or trout, give us a shout.
