Last day of Salmon Fishing is a winner!

Last day of Salmon Fishing is a winner!

One last go at the Chum Salmon The Squamish River has been good to me since the first visit there in 1988 so I keep going back. The river is gorgeous and the surrounding landscapes are pure eye candy. And there’s fish. In this case it’s the last day for retention of Chum Salmon on the Squamish River. The great thing about catching Chum Salmon here is that most fish you hook into on the lower river will be ‘tidal’ fish. Meaning they have come into the river on the last high tide. The lower river is notorious for this and given that the salt water is only a few […]

Chum Salmon invade the Fraser River Valley!

Chum Salmon invade the Fraser River Valley!

This is by far the best Chum Salmon fishing we have seen in years! Chums are usually big in numbers but this year is insane. They just keep coming in every day. The Fraser River Valley tributaries are teaming with Chum salmon. Every run is boiling with fish. It’s a ton of fun for everyone. What does this mean for our charter guests? Lots and lots of hookups for everyone. We have seen many of our clients hooking up with up to 50 Chum salmon each per day. Chums are solid scrappers and if you tie into that many in a day your arms are going to feel it. But […]

Fraser River Fall Chinook Salmon Fishing heats up!

Fraser River Fall Chinook Salmon Fishing heats up!

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 […]

Salmon Fishing on the Fraser River Opens Sept 19th, 2016

Salmon Fishing on the Fraser River Opens Sept 19th, 2016

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 […]
