Hooking big White Sturgeon and lots of Salmon in October is easier than taking candy from a baby
Ever dreamed of going fishing in a place where it’s almost too easy? Well, this is it. It boils down to timing. And fishing is all about timing. So what makes October(and into November) so good? Chum Salmon is the answer. Lots of Chum Salmon. And there’s Coho too but it’s all about the Chums. Chum’s return to spawn every Fall starting around October 1st.
2017 Chum Salmon returns forecast to be possible record breaking! Read Article.
They will keep pouring into the Fraser River Valley until late November. They are very prolific and aggressive biters. But what makes Chum salmon fishing so appealing is they trigger a feeding frenzy in the White Sturgeon population of the Fraser River. So it’s very easy to hook up with a ton of Salmon and then go play with some dinosaurs who will dish out some punishing battles!
Arms get sore in October!
Catch Salmon and giant White Sturgeon on the same day!
Chum’s fight tough. They are the brutes of the Pacific salmon kingdom. Combine that with endless hookups for several hours and you’ve got guys complaining of sore arms. But it’s a happy pain! We routinely see our guests hook into 20, 30 and 40 Chums each in a day on the river. But the Sturgeon fishing is equally as good. It’s normal to hook up with a 7 foot beast within the first few minutes of your charter. Then you’ll be fighting that beast for 30 minutes, take it to shore for a nice photo and back to repeat the scenario all over.
