Fraser Chinooks are here! The Fraser river opened on Monday September 19th for Chinook and Chum salmon fishing. We were on the Fraser yesterday for some bar fishing in hopes to nail a Chinook or 2. The Fraser river visibility was about 2 feet which is nice enough to have success. Upon arriving we pounded the bar rod holders into the gravel at the edge of the river. Then with 20 oz of lead attached to the spin-glo rig they were cast out about 15 yards straight out into the current. Depth was about 8 feet. I told the guys we would have a hookup within 10 minutes. 8 minutes […]
Fraser River Salmon Fishing OPENS September 19th, 2016 An unusually late opening that will not be repeated in 2017. Finally the Fraser river will be open to Salmon fishing on September 19th, 2016. Our highly dysfunctional Department of Fisheries and Oceans(DFO) has opened the Fraser to sportfishing for Chinook salmon and Chum salmon. A lack of salmon wasn’t really the issue here, but rather political bunglings and lack of leadership. The big run of Fall Chinooks can now be targetted on our Fraser river fishing charters! We will be bar fishing, plug fishing and deep spinner fishing for these Fraser Chinooks that can go over 50 lbs and average 20-25 […]
August 13 Sturgeon Fishing Report The White Sturgeon fishing has been equal with the weather recently, as in very nice. Fishing over the past week has consistently resulted in plenty of large White Sturgeon being caught and released after a quick photo session in the shallows. Sturgeon are then promptly released. Some fish swim away slowly and others are so frisky that getting a still photo is difficult to achieve and once in a while impossible. Thankfully we do have a few pics you can view in this post. Very big Sturgeon are in the Fraser river right now and they are hungry. If you’re looking to battle foul tempered […]

But they would have never expected this whopper. This giant Sturgeon measured 11 feet 3 inches measured nose to fork of the tail.

Sturgeon fishing has been just wonderful lately! We’ve been on the Fraser river doing White Sturgeon fishing charters for the last 10 days with groups of anglers all the way from England and closer to home too. Biggest Sturgeon for the England group was 8 feet 6 inches or 350 lbs during their 6 day Sturgeon package. Our Alberta group had 9 fish hooked into on the first day of their 2 day stay. Other anglers from Texas also had stunning results. Dates are filling up fast for our prime Sturgeon month of October. Please book soon if you want to fish with our guides or Brian Mack.

Sturgeon fishing over the past week: Fraser river Sturgeon behavior plays a key role in success rates and over the past week we saw a shift in this. Sturgeon had moved and feeding patterns were off in some areas. Lots of boats on the river in the Mission area were struggling. Guys fishing further up by Chilliwack were doing much better. All our trips over the long weekend caught nice fish, just not lots of them as we have been used to this year. Sturgeon fishing will get very good again, it always does. We anticipate that by weeks end the fishing in the Mission area will be excellent as […]
This massive Fraser River Sturgeon put on a show! It was a Sturgeon to be reckoned with. Not just in size but the battle was epic! 5 tail walking jumps out of the river spread over an hour and a half and the fish was landed 5 km down river from where it was hooked on May 21, 2016. Watch the video below and see 1 of the incredible jumps from early in the battle.
Sturgeon Fishing on the Fraser continues to be excellent! June has had a bad rap for being tough Sturgeon fishing. We don’t like that one bit. It’s simply not true. Case in point is that our last few trips have produced many hookups with tanky big fish full of piss & vinegar. That’s apparently a term used to describe a fish with a load of explosive energy. Sounds good to us. In fact this year has been a very good Sturgeon fishing year. Fraser river flow and conditions are prime. There’s lots of big White Sturgeon in the river right now. Good bait will materialize into a hookup with a […]
