A whale of a day for Sturgeon Fishing! It’s March 30th and our boat is booked for a Sturgeon charter Spring season deal. We start our trip at 9am and head up stream 15 minutes from the Mission marina. The air is crisp and the sun is out. It’s a beautiful day to be on the Fraser river! Everyone is pumped for a good day of Sturgeon fishing including myself. I can sense that the results are going to be good today. We’ve had several days of stable sunny weather which makes for happy fish. The Sturgeon are feeding heavily on Fraser river Eulachons(smelts). This buffet makes them very energetic […]
Simply put it was ‘one of those days!’ for Bull trout Fly fishing for Bull Trout on the Squamish river near Vancouver BC We met our 2 angling guests at Sunwolf Cabins right on the banks of the Cheakamus river, a tributary of the Squamish river. It was just past sunrise and we were eager to get going. The weather conditions were perfect! Overcast with light rain. I sensed it was going to be a good day. It’s almost mid March and from years of experience I know that Bull trout are very actively feeding right now. Most of these Bull’s are sea-run and they know that little salmon fry […]
Steelhead love jigs Was out yesterday on the Vedder river in pursuit of a chrome Steelhead. My arsenal? A red jig and some finely cured prawns. The outcome was a silver bullet hooked into in the first 10 minutes. A beauty hen of about 10 lbs. Had 2 other float disappearances after that but no connection. A kind angler who had just got himself a beauty Steelhead 30 minutes earlier took plenty of photos for me. Steelhead season will be upon us until late April. Give us a shout if you want to book a guided trip with a Steelhead expert.
The Steelhead Green light Ever since I can remember the term “Steelhead Green” has inspired myself and many local anglers to abandon everything and hit the river. There’s probably a spike in the number of people with the flu when this happens. “Sorry boss, I don’t feel well today”. We know this strain of flu. The only cure is to be on the river. In most cases Steelhead Green occurs after some high water and the river is dropping. It’s a stage between dirty & high and low & clear. Steelhead will be happy to enter a river when it’s high and dirty. There’s awesome cover and plenty of depth. […]
