About our Chinook Salmon Fishing charters
We are proud to offer one of the best success rates for Fraser Valley Chinooks! All Fraser Chinook charters require our 21 – 24 foot jet boats and depart from Mission or Kilby(60 min east of Vancouver) Enjoy the spectacular sights and serenity from the ‘gravel bars’ of the Fraser River in the Chilliwack-Mission area.
First of all the Chinook Salmon is also known as King Salmon. Chinook Salmon fishing on the Fraser river from later August to early October offers some extremely good success rates for these prized table fish. Fraser Chinooks run strong during this time. For many of our guests this Fraser River fishing experience keeps them coming back. Fraser Chinooks are in peak condition when we catch them. They are usually bright silver and may have a sea lice or 2 on them. A sure sign that they are a day or 2 from the ocean. With a retail value of $30 per pound or higher it only makes sense to spend a day or more on the river with our guides so you can enjoy good fishing and better value. Our history of Chinook Salmon fishing in the Fraser River Valley goes back 3 decades.
Our Fishing methods for Kings
We provide ALL high end tackle!
We only employ selective and highly effective sport fishing methods for Chinooks like ‘bar fishing’, spinner blade or plug fishing. These methods consistently get our guests hooked into big Fraser Chinooks! We do not ‘bottom bounce’ for Chinooks. That is a non-selective snag fishery.
Fraser Chinooks that top 50 lbs!
Although average sizes for Fraser River King salmon range from 15 to 25 lbs we do encounter some real hogs now and then each season. Kings that go over 40 and even 50 lbs are in the river every year. It’s the salmon everyone dreams of. To land a Chinook salmon over 30 lbs(called a Tyee salmon). Here in the Fraser river valley that dream happens often for our clients. The record for largest Fraser River Chinook is well over 80 lbs which was not caught on line and reel.
Read about the 42 lb Chinook Salmon caught late September 2016.
