Giant White Sturgeon jumping out of the Fraser river Check out this White Sturgeon river monster that does 2 crazy jumps right after hooking it on the Fraser river just upstream from Mission, British Columbia. The area here is about a 20 minute jet boat ride from Chilliwack, BC. Want to experience this kind of fishing? Book a guided trip with us from April to November. Peak season is July to mid November. The absolute best time is probably September – October when excellent Salmon fishing happens too.

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 […]

Giant White Sturgeon caught May 21, 2016 in Mission BC

Father/son fishing day yields monster White Sturgeon! Adam and his father Cliff had booked a Fraser River Sturgeon fishing trip with us. They arrived at the dock at 8:30 AM. After boarding our 21 foot CustomWeld jet boat we headed upstream from the Mission marina. The Fraser river was looking just great. Better than it really should be for May 21. There was very little debris in the river and it had a touch of green. Weather conditions were overcast, cool and breezy. 2017 Sturgeon fishing guided trips and packages are booking ahead of schedule. Contact us soon to secure your dates! I pulled into a quiet little stretch of […]

A Beastly Sturgeon!

A Beastly Sturgeon!

We think 350 pounds and 102″ translates into a Beast of a Sturgeon This Sturgeon was clearly the fish of a lifetime for all 15 guys who were part of a 3 boat fishing charter with us on Saturday May 7th. Even though there are bigger White Sturgeon in the Fraser river, this is certainly a fish that anyone can be proud to boast of for their lifetime! It was caught on Saturday May 7th between Mission and Chilliwack, British Columbia. It was hooked at 1:45 PM and was landed at 3:05 PM. Photos were taken and the fish was released safely. The stag group were amazed at how tough […]

Sturgeon fishing Incredibleness!

Sturgeon fishing Incredibleness!

Our Fraser River Sturgeon Report for April 22, 2016 We want to make this clear. Sturgeon fishing doesn’t get any better than what we’ve experienced over the last 2 weeks. We were on the Fraser on April 19-20th with 2 guys, 1 from Australia and 1 from the USA midwest. They were in for a real treat as there were over 20 good size fish landed. Our biggest was a whopping 8 feet 4 inch beast. Lots of White Sturgeon were in the 4.5 – 6 foot range and full of ‘piss & vinegar’ aka steroids. Many fish were doing incredibly long runs over 200 meters and a couple of […]

Some Beauty Bull Trout on the Fly

Some Beauty Bull Trout on the Fly

Finding Bull Trout is the adventure It’s April 17 and one of our fly fishing guides Jason and myself have the afternoon to go chuck some flies for Bull trout on the Squamish river just north of Vancouver. I decide to take him into a secret run I know. It requires a 20 minute hike through some very cool looking Elk trails and finally pops out onto the river where a sweet piece of river is beckoning a cast. Single hand or Spey? That is the question Jason packs along a 13 foot 7 weight spey rod and  I pack a 7/8 weight single hand equipped with a Hardy Demon […]

April 12 Fly Fishing – When everything lines up!

April 12 Fly Fishing – When everything lines up!

Perfect conditions and a whole lot of tight lines! Steelhead green, overcast with a few showers is what we always hope for when we have clients on the river for Steelhead & Trout fly fihing. This is what you need to wish for. Please don’t wish for sunny skies and low clear water. I had the pleasure of guiding Ed from Washigton state for 2 days(April 11-12) of Steelhead & Bull Troutfly fishing on the Squamish river. Ed has been chucking flies for some time but doesn’t know our area too well so like many other wise people he hired a guide to give him the advantage. Ed stayed at […]

April 2 Sturgeon fishing

April 2 Sturgeon fishing

Sturgeon Fishing remains solid As we head out from the Mission marina there’s  a lot of anticipation in the air on this sunny crisp morning. The memories of March 31 slay fest is firmly in our minds. Will it be a repeat? As the old addage goes, time will tell. We head up river to where there’s been plenty of activity lately. A quick sounding of the river bottom reveals a few Sturgeon so we drop anchor and settle in to our first spot. Lines are cast out and our baits lay deliciously on the river bottom. And so we wait… It doesn’t take too long and the first fish […]

Just another Sturgeon slay fest!

Just another Sturgeon slay fest!

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 […]

Bull Trout Fly fishing Magic

Bull Trout Fly fishing Magic

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 […]
