Sturgeon fishing has been fair to excellent this past week, most of our full day sturgeon charters are producing some excellent results, our combination salmon sturgeon charters have been less productive so if you are looking to catch some large sturgeon I highly recommend focusing on sturgeon all day. Salmon fishing has been slow this past week, one commercial fishery after another doesn’t help much to get fish up to in-river fisherman.
I’ve spend most of the summer up in the canyon while Tom and the boys are fishing out of Mission, we landed some beauty fish but larger fish are definitely coming out of the Mission area right now. We are still focusing on sockeye salmon baits but now that the chum salmon are starting to show up it won’t be long before we switch over to Chum roe and stink bait.
Vancouver salmon fishing continues to produce some great results, trolling for sockeye has been very productive using the new Gibbs-Delta Guide series flashers. These fish are bright and scrappy and most guest are going home with their limits. This fishery is almost over, maybe another week to 10 days and we will be switiching over to coho and fall chinook.
Speaking of the new guide series flashers, we have a few Gibbs-Delta STS UV Glo Flashers to give away, just go to our STS facebook page https://www.facebook.com/STSGuiding and post a picture of your latest catch out in the salt, tell us a bit about your trip and favorite place to saltwater fish and we will send you a Gibb-Delta Fishing Package including the new STS UV GLO Flasher.
Here are a few nice pics from this week.
Have a great weekend.
