April 25 Fishing Report Update

April has not disappointed, the weather was a bit cooler than normal but the fishing action has been hot. Lots of larger sturgeon in the 6 to 8 foot range with fair numbers of smaller fish. The river has been producing good action throughout the lower area below Mission, Mission to Chilliwack and the area between Harrison and Hope.

Baits have varied but one thing that has not is the freshness and how well it has been preserved. Getting good bait has been an ongoing challenge for all guides in the Fraser system, the key is how well you preserve it once you find it. Lamprey eel, eulachon, salmon eggs, salmon parts and pike minnow are all working, just depends on which part of the river your fishing on which bait works best.

Water levels are still what we would consider low but weather forecast is predicting warm dry weather for the next two weeks so we should start to see some snowmelt at higher elevations. This will begin to raise the water levels on the Fraser and begin to color which has already started.

The great sturgeon fishing should continue through most of May so if you are looking for a great trip, we still have some great dates available. Give us a call at 604-671-3474 or email us at sts

Our Fly Fishing trips were a great success during the month of April and we see no reason as to why the next few weeks would be the same. We offer several remote river fly fishing experiences departing from Harrison Resort where our office is located.

The weather forecast for the next two weeks looks to be much like in this photo, clear and sunny so great time to experience this trip. All our fly fishing trips are full day adventures and we provide all tackle including the flies.
