Fraser River Sturgeon Report – July 4, 2016

Fraser River Sturgeon Report – July 4, 2016

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 […]

9 foot plus giant White Sturgeon jumping!

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 Report June 19, 2016

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 […]

May 27 Sturgeon trip report

May 27 Sturgeon trip report

This May has been an incredible Sturgeon fishing month! Once again our clients land another hoggish White Sturgeon from the Fraser river between Mission and Chilliwack, British Columbia. This fish hammered down the bait and took off like lightening! Withing 30 seconds she had left no more than 5 meters of line on the reel before we were able to pull anchor and power reverse down river a touch to prevent a catastrophy. But we prevailed, and only by about 1 or 2 seconds. Kevin from Washington D.C. was into the fish of his life. It breached in the first 2 minutes and revealed itself while the usual hollers of […]
