August 20 Fishing Report Update

Fishing this past week has been excellent, we have been targeting sturgeon on the Fraser, Chinook Salmon out in the ocean and even had a few trips for trout. You have to work for your fish but if you put in your time, there are some really nice fish out there. See below for detailed report

As you can see by the above picture, there are some monster sturgeon out there to be caught. Best bait right now is salmon parts but the standard lamrey, pike minnow and eggs are always a good choice.

Sturgeon fishing has been steady action in the Mission area, a bit slower up river but some big fish around if your not looking for numbers and put in your time. After all sturgeon fishing is not about how many fish you can out in the boat, it’s about fidning that one or two quality fish.

Speaking of quality fishing, October is creeping up on us quickly, this is the best time to fish sturgeon and salmon on the Fraser river, you can come out for the day or pick one of our valued accommodations packages. Our BW packages start as low as $345 per person for a 2 night 1 day, you can find more information by visiting.

Salmon fishing out of Vancouver has been good this past week, Thomas was out for a full day trip on Tuesday and put 6 nice Chinook in the boat and released a few wild Coho. There are a few pink salmon starting to show up bu the bulk of them are still migrating along the coast and are about a week away. Our west coast lodge packages are wrapped up for 2017 but we are already selling and booking for 2018 which should be one of the best years ion the 4 year cycle.

Over the next 90 days we will have our best fishing of the year for both salmon and sturgeon, we have plenty of great dates still available for fishing out of Mission, Chilliwack or Harrison and a few limited dates for the canyon. Come out and join us, call Vic at 604-671-3474 or email us at sts

Have a great week.
