Fraser River Chinook Salmon Fishing charters
We recommend planning your Fraser river Chinook package from Aug 25 to Oct 7
Our Fraser river Chinook Salmon fishing trips are perhaps the hilight of our Salmon fishing program. Fraser Chinooks(aka King salmon) fight extremely hard and are prime table fish. Over the last several years we have seen very good returns of Chinooks from mid August to early October. Our salmon fishing guides employ proper sport fishing methods that include ‘bar fishing’, ‘deep spinner fishing’, back trolling, and plugs. Success rates are extremely high during this peak season. Fraser river Chinooks tend to average in the low 20 lb range but every year we get them over 40 and sometimes 50 lbs! Prime dates are Aug 20 to October 7 and are always a big seller. We recommend booking in advance.
Fraser Valley Chum Salmon Fishing
Tons of action on Chum’s from early October to later November!
Chum Salmon fishing is ideal for the angler looking for hands on action! Chums infiltrate all Fraser Valley rivers and streams from later September to late November. We guide for Chums on the Harrison river, Fraser river and Stave river. Chum salmon are easy to catch using the jig under a float method or fly fishing. Once hooked look out, because they don’t like it and will let you know. Pound for pound, Chum salmon are probably the toughest of all the Pacific salmon. Peak times for Chum salmon is October 7 to November 7 and this also coincides with some of the best Sturgeon fishing the Fraser river has to offer. Our Chum/Sturgeon packages are extremely popular and often book up 6 months in advance.
Pink Salmon Fishing is in odd # years only
Fraser Pinks are September, Squamish Pinks are July 15 – Aug 31
The Fraser river and Squamish river are well known for having massive returns of Pink Salmon. They return every odd numbered year only, so the next runs to plan for is 2017, 2019. Pinks are also really easy to catch whether you’re fly fishing or flippin jigs. Catches of 100 fish per angler happened on several occasions just last season and that’s on the fly! Pinks aren’t big in size but certainly big on fun. When the Fraser river Pink salmon arrive in late August it triggers perhaps the best Sturgeon fishing you will ever experience! It’s an all out feeding frenzy. Fraser River Pink salmon run from very late August to very late September. Squamish river Pinks run from July 20 to early September.
Coho Salmon Fishing
Coho’s are ideal for flyfishing or spin fishing and available from later September to early November
Freshwater Coho Salmon fishing is available from later September to early November throughout the Fraser River Valley. Fly fishing for Coho is very productive! Spinner or spoon fishing also works well. Vancouver saltwater charters allow for good Coho fishing from June to August. We highly specialize in Coho Salmon fly fishing which dates back to 1996.Book Now
