Fraser River Sturgeon Report
<p>The Fraser River is definitely on the rise right now and has come up over 3 feet in the last week alone, however the sturgeon fishing has been consistent from Mission to Fort Langley, as our sturgeon guides have proven over this past week. Don't let these river conditions deter you from sturgeon fishing as two of our sturgeon guides boated over 70 sturgeon in the 3ft.–7ft. size range this past weekend alone.
With the river on the rise, there is plenty of sticks, logs and debris being washed down the Fraser River right now and there is lots of small debris getting stuck on the fishing lines while sturgeon fishing, this can be quite an annoyance as the lines have to be brought up quite often to clear the debris and check the baits which means actual fishing times are decreased for those rods. That means our guides are finding more sheltered spots to fish that are closer to shore and behind log booms to stay out of the way of floating debris, staying out of the main flow is key right now. Amazingly enough, with all of these challenges our sturgeon guides are still catching great numbers of sturgeon.
Once again the baits of choice this past week have been Eulachons and Lamprey Eels. The sturgeon are really keying in on these baits right now as they are most prevalent in the Fraser River. As mentioned in last week's report, don't be afraid to mix things up a little as one of our guides did and was rewarded with a few nice smaller sturgeon caught on dew worms.
There is still plenty of good spring time sturgeon fishing ahead and we still have sturgeon guides available fro prime dates.
