Fraser River Valley Salmon Fishing Report.
SALMON FISHING IN THE FRASER RIVER VALLEY IS COMING TO THE END, MOST FISH HAVE SPAWNED NOW ALTHOUGH A FEW STRAGGLERS CAN BE FOUND HERE AND THERE.
Fall Salmon for 2023: Pink salmon arrive in early September. Make sure you book early to get in on the great Salmon fishing action that goes from early September to later November. These trips require the use of our jet boats to access the prime spots.
Chinook Salmon fishing is extremely good from early September to mid October.
Chum Salmon fishing is extremely good from early October to late November.
Coho Salmon fishing is best from September 20 to early November.
» Dates always sell out in advance so make sure to contact us ASAP.
The Squamish River will be fishing nicely for Coho and Chum Salmon starting in early October thru until November 15 – 20. Then it’s March 15 to late April for the resident Bull Trout, plus the odd Steelhead. This is catch and release. This is a gorgeous place that offers a high quality outdoors experience. It’s walk n wade here, and we supply the best equipment available. Not suitable for ages under 16 as swift water flows put them at risk. Children are best to be on our boats.
Upper Pitt River:
The Upper Pitt will be a great option once we hit later May and continues through until early/mid July. We do not fish here outside of these times. This river is accessed only by jet boat or helicopter and thus offers a very quiet setting with awesome scenery and flyfishing for sea run Dolly Varden that go over 10 lbs.
Lake Fly Fishing for Rainbow’s:
May & June offer fantastic results on several lakes we guide on in BC’s interior region. We have spent a lot of time on a few lakes near Merritt with amazing results for Rainbow’s in the 18 – 24 inch range. It’s a 3 hr drive from Vancouver but if you love still water it’s totally worth it on these wilderness lakes. Scenery is extremely nice. We can also provide multi day trips here with lodging in some nice cabins.
Steelhead season starts early February. The best fly fishing happens here in March – April. Gear fishers dominate this river mostly but we do get the odd one on the fly.
A very good option for May – June. We have spent about 2 weeks on these lakes this May and were blown away by some very impressive fly fishing for Rainbow Trout in the 18 to 24 inch range. A load of fun on 4 & 5 weight fly rods! Chironomids in sizes 10 – 16 are the mainstay. Use chromies in various colours. But when they aren’t biting chromies try dull dark colours.
For all the best chironomid fly patterns visit FLYGUYS.NET
We do provide single day trips or multi day fly fishing packages to some very productive lakes just 3 hrs from Vancouver. If you go without a guide be well stocked with midges in all colours in sizes 8 to 16. Other flies to keep in your box include Damsels, Dragons, May flies, micro leeches, bead head wooly buggers in black, green, brown and maroon.
» We offer fly fishing lessons for Rainbow trout too. Our experience will give you the edge!
