This week has been a bit slower for most local anglers, weather has been very cold and clear with high winds so only the Die Hardest of anglers are out on the water. We are expecting a good snowfall on Friday up to 20cm but won’t last long and should be cleared up by late Saturday or Sunday at latest.
Fraser River – water conditions are in great shape, we had a couple sturgeon charters out this week with good catches rates of 6 to 12 fish in ½ day, best bait was salmon eggs. Fish are spread throughout the river with Chilliwack, Mission and Langley area all producing good results. We are currently offering our off season rates so if you are looking to get out, give us a call.
This pic was taken this past summer by STS Guide Doug Elias, Doug was putting them on the big fish this day, great job Doug!
Vedder River Steelhead – not as many reports in this week, some nice fish caught but a bit slower than the last few weeks. Water clarity is clear and river is still dropping from last rise. You can expect conditions to remain the same until the expected snowfall this weekend then the river shoud,begin to rise again and move another fresh push of fish into the river.
Vancouver Salmon Fishing – Winter Chinook Fishing was very good this past week, our guides were out 3 days and produced good results on every trip. Winter fishing is not for the faint, you need to dress warm and be prepared if you plan on spending a solid 5 hours on the water. Most of our trips in winter are ½ day or 5 hours and our off season rates do apply, please contact us for quote.
As you can see by the above pic, not only is salmon fishing good but prawns and crab fishing is also very good.
