July 8 – 11 Sturgeon Show Filming
We were approached several months ago by Kevin Hodgson and Kevin Peterson from ‘Feel The Rush TV’ about hosting them to film a BC Sturgeon fishing show. Needless to say we were more than happy to be involved in doing another TV show that involves giant Fraser River White Sturgeon!
As with all TV show filmings the goal and hope is to get a fish in the double digits, aka over 10 feet. This is no easy task but entirely possible. We are certainly prepared for any size fish that climbs onto our bait.
Fraser river conditions
July conditions on the Fraser River can be variable but generally quite decent overall. However we were well downstream of a rather serious weather event that upped the challenge quite a bit! Severe rain had swollen tributaries 500 km upstream. All that water and tons of debris was now in Mission, BC 3 days later.
From the News:
The B.C. River Forecast Centre says the Chilcotin River has peaked and floodwaters are receding after a flood event not likely to happen again for another 200 years. Read Article.
This forced us to change our tactics. Fortunately we were able to adjust due to our over 2 decades of experience on the Fraser.
