Fraser River Fishing Update for March 22, 2023

The Fraser River has been fishing better than average for the past few weeks for White Sturgeon. All of our charters have produced good results and lately there has been some monsters taken to the beach for pics and tagging. As always, all of our guides are participants in the FRSCS White Sturgeon Monitoring Program so all guests will participate in scanning and tagging of white sturgeon they catch.

As mentioned above Sturgeon fishing has been good to excellent the past few weeks. The Eulachons have arrived into the river as sturgeon are now beginning to feed on these as well as other bait fish like lamprey. For those of you who have fished with us in April /May in past years, know how great sturgeon fishing can be, average day is 6-10 with the occasional double digit day. We still have some great guides and dates available to book so please reach out if you would like to come out and experience the great sturgeon fishing.

Sturgeon Fishing will continue to produce good results well through the spring and into early summer. Freshet usually begins around early to middle of May but who really knows with the cooler start to spring were having across the country, we could have a late freshet. Once we do I’ll send out another update.

This summer is the return of the Pink Salmon to the Fraser, they only return every other year. Sturgeon love eating Pink Salmon and key in on them from mid August through to late September. This would be another great time to book a trip with us. They also make great sport for fly fisherman as these salmon will also chase down a well presented streamer.
