Fishing Report for Sept 22,2011

Fish’n is Hot

Vancouver Salmon Fishing.

Fishing around Vancouver remains good, we have been seeing quite a few Chinook and Coho along the west shoreline of Vancouver. The T-10 and Bell Bouy are still producing some nice Chinook and we are seeing some larger Coho as well. Our 26ft Grady White is ready to go so if you are looking for a day out on the salt, this would be a good time.

Fraser River Salmon

Salmon fishing on the Fraser has been nothing short of spectacular. Currently we have groups from Ireland, Scotland, Germany, Alberta and BC and they are all going home with limits of fish, sore arms and some great Memories.

For Pink salmon we are fishing with Pink Jigs, Gibbs Ultra Lures and Fly fishing with sparse pink maribou flys. All 3 are working well. Coho are now starting to show up in the Vedder so when we are targeting Pinks we are hooking up with some nice bright Coho. Yesterday we landed 4 Coho in the 4 to 6 lb range.

Here is a beautiful silver Coho heading for the Vedder River caught on the fly.

Fraser Sturgeon Fishing

Sturgeon fishing has been excellent this past week, lots of fish in the river taking advantage of the 16 million Pink Salmon. If you put in a full day for sturgeon you can expect 8 to 12 sturgeon ranging from 3 ft to 8 ft, still lots of fish over 7ft being caught. These fish are very fat and are putting up a great battle.

Look at the Girth on this fish, wow.

Best bait has been Pink salmon eggs but you can catch fish on belly stips, gills, and just about any other part of a salmon.

This fish measured 7 ft 8 inches and gave these guest from the UK a battle of a lifetime.

What to expect over the next week.

We are still seeing some fresh Pink Salmon move into the Fraser, we are catching a mix of fresh fish with sea-lice and some fish that have been in the river for a time. We are seeing some beautiful Coho Salmon and some Jack Springs so this should continue to improve as we get closer to October. No reports of Chum yet but we are only days away from seeing them begin to move into the Fraser.

Late run Chinook are already moving in, if anglers don’t mind putting in the time, this is a great fishery that will last well into mid October.

Hope you have a great week.se you on the water.

Sept 16 FIshing Report

Fishing continues to be excellent for both salmon and sturgeon. We have been catching limits of salmon on all of our trips as well as some very large and healthy sturgeon.

This great fishing should continue through until end of September then we switch our focus to Chum, Coho and Fall Chinook.

The other day I hooked my first Chinook fishing spoons at the mouth of the Vedder, this would indicate that these fish are now starting to move into the Chilliwack river system

Casey & Iris visting us from Edmonton are having a trip of a lifetime, 20 sturgeon in one day with several fish over 7 ft. I think they are going home with longer arms.

Our group of Irish fly fisherman are having a blast, lots of Pink Salmon on the fly.

Here is a first salmon of the year, great job Huey.

The Pink salmon are spread throughout the Fraser River, if you can find some clearer water in a back channel to will find that fish are biting better than in the main channel.

These guys from MFP Edmonton are having a blast, too bad they have to go home now.

As you can see, fishing is great, all of our guests are going home with big smiles and sore arms, can’t ask for much more than that.

Hope you have a great week and see you on the water.

Sept 8 Fishing report

Fishing for Pink Salmon has been rediculous, Doug landed over 100 fish on a full day charter. We are mostly fishing with light spin tackle but fly fishing is also producing some great fish. The fish are quite large this year which means that there was lots of feed in the ocean this past year.

I pulled up beside Dougs boat and ask our guest from Alberta to get me a triple header for a picture, within seconds we had a double header and lost the 3rd.

The weather has been amazing, summer has arrived, just a bit late. Everyone is having a great time on the water catching loads of salmon and some big sturgeon

I was up fishing one of my private holes in a unknown location and this 6 ft 4 inch fish put up a battle that was worthy of a 8 ft fish. Our guests from Quebec got their butts handed to them by this brute.

Speaking of large sturgeon, this was monster fish measuring 7 ft 2 that we landed just a few hours ago, we hooked another one same or bigger just after landing this one. Great fishing all day .

Fishing Report for Sept 7

Fishing has been very good for both salmon and sturgeon, millions of Pink Salmon are moving into the Fraser as well as a late run of sockeye and some larger than average Chinook.

Water clarity on the Fraser is improving daily but we are still mostly fishing tributary confluences where water clarity is better.

This nice Chinook was caught today out at the mouth of the Fraser.

Vancouver Salmon Fishing.

Fishing in Vancouver has been good all week, we are hooking sockeye, pink salmon and the occasional Chinook Salmon. Sockeye is now closed to retention in the saltwater but remains open in the Fraser above Mission. If you are wanting to catch sockeye, our river jet boat trips are available out of Mission. If you want to target the late run of Chinook, water conditions are best in the ocean. We have been fishing the mouth of the North Arm, South Arm, T-10 and Q A Marker. Fish are moving along the shoreline so no need to go out too far.

Here are some pinks and sockeye caught on our ocean charters yesterday, great job guys.

Fraser River Sturgeon

Sturgeon fishing has been good throughout the river, lots of big fish being caught in the Mission area. Best bait has been stink bait but we are also catching fish on fresh sockeye and pink roe.

Fishing will continue to improve as more salmon move into the river.

Overall salmon and sturgeon fishing has been great, all of our guests are going home with big smiles and sore arms. Our Canyon trips are very busy and water is getting big. Come and join us for some of the best fishing of the season.

Fishing Report for Sept 3

We are now back on track with water levels dropping quickly. Each high tide is bringing in more and more Pink Salmon along with sockeye and Chinook salmon. Sockeye remains open for retention and are indications are that it will stay that way for some time.

Fishing is good both in the river and ocean, see below for some of the landed fish the past few days.

That is a beauty Chinook

The pinks are bigger than average this year.

Here is one over 7ft.

We still have a few boats for Tuesday & Wednesday next week.
