The BIG ones are arriving to get ready to spawn or to be ready for the upcoming salmon runs. June has produced epic results over […]

9 foot White Sturgeon for the Captain

9 foot White Sturgeon for the Captain

Our jaws dropped when this Sturgeon first exploded out of the Fraser River! What do guides do after a charter? Well, we go fishing. Yesterday was no different. Mike(one of our guides) hooked up with me around 5pm to hit the river and Sturgeon fish for a bit. The weather was sweet so we just had to go. We went up the Fraser from the Mission boat launch about 10 minutes and dropped anchor. Baits were carefully selected and cast into the depths where they lay deliciously on the bottom. We wait now. Didn’t have to wait long however, maybe 5 minutes. Mike’s rod went thump thump and then the […]

It’s Steelhead time on the Vedder – Chilliwack River!

It’s Steelhead time on the Vedder – Chilliwack River!

Vedder Steelhead are here! The Vedder River has both wild and hatchery clipped Steelhead. All wild fish must be released and never removed from the water. Steelhead fishing picks up after some much needed rain after a rather lengthy Arctic domination of our weather. The Vedder river shot up to a level that drives fish into the system instead of the pee trickle we had for several weeks. When the river starts to drop this is always a key time to hit the river. Fresh Steelhead only 2 days from the ocean are back home to their birth place and eager to smack some morsels of bait drifted in front […]
