Sturgeon Fishing Report – Fraser river at Mission BC

Our Sturgeon fishing charters are completely open and our guests are catching lots of fish! Rely on our 24 years of experience.


Currently Sturgeon fishing is Great! Huge fish are in the Fraser River. Charter guests over the past week have landed fish up to 9 feet long and a fish over 10 feet was lost. On our sonar we saw a fish of 15 feet under the boat!! If you want to have some fun on the Fraser River book now. It will be very good from now until mid to late November. The Contact form is below.

Q: Do Sturgeon care if it’s raining? NO. They love it!

2021 bookings are very busy so plan ahead and be open to book a weekday. Want to know some key times for the big ones? Read: Sturgeon Fishing Best Times on the Fraser River.

We got loads of top baits to help our clients hook up with their quarry.


The Fraser River is looking really good now. Each day the river is dropping which is awesome for the fishing.

Fraser River Valley
Salmon Fishing Report


There’s loads of salmon entering the Fraser River now! Fraser River Valley Pink Salmon arrive in early September 2021 and make for some fast action on light tackle for the month. Coho & Chum Salmon Fishing will be a great option from early October to November 27.

Fall Salmon: Make sure you book early to get in on the great Salmon fishing action that goes until early November. These trips require the use of our jet boats to access the prime spots.

Chum Salmon fishing is extremely good right now! Success rates are 100%. The parent generation of the 2020 Chum run was HUGE so we are seeing another great return!

Coho Salmon fishing is also producing some fine results!

Fly Fishing Report

Squamish River:

The Squamish River Pink Salmon fly fishing opened on July 15 for catch and release. Retention might be allowed once good numbers of fish show up. There’s been no screaming reports of awesome fishing but it’s still a nice experience. 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.

Upper Pitt River:

The Upper Pitt will be a great option once we hit later May and continues through until early/mid July. 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.

Vedder-Chilliwack River:

Steelhead season is just starting here. 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.

Winter Steelhead are being caught recently. Some rather nice ones too. Be prepared to cover lots of water on foot.

Visit >> Steelhead Fishing << Page.

If you are having a tough time finding fish you might need some in depth coaching from one of our pro’s. It’s a great investment and will save you time and money.

interior lakes fly fishing report

Interior Lakes
Fly Fishing Report

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!

Call Brian at 1-604-864-5445 to inquire about a lake fly fishing trip.
