Salmon and Sturgeon fishing report for the Fraser river--
We have our NEW BOAT now!! A 21 ft Custom Weld Storm, a great fishing machine for up to 5 clients with comfort and style!
The Salmon fishing is on fire right now!! call 604-864-5445 for bookings
Sturgeon fishing is HOT right now with lots of very big fish. Average size for us is about 6 feet or 120 lbs! and we have been getting lots of fish in the 300 lb class and of course their are those monster 800+ lbs for a few people each year. Sturgeon fight like Marlin and Mako shark, very impressive! with long screaming runs, jumps, violent head shakes and more!
The Fraser river is clogged with 20 million Pink salmon! and everybody is catching these scrappy fish! Expect to catch fish after fish for any ages!!
You may keep 4 Pinks/day. Guests on our fishing charters are hooking up to 75 fish each per day! Expect good fishing for Pinks for another week or 2.
There are quite a few big fall Chinook(King) salmon in the Fraser river and we know where they hide and what they like.
We expect great fishing in the Fraser valley until late November as usual.
If you've never been on the Fraser your missing out on a spectacular resource! All of our clients have been very impressed with the scenery, the fishing and the service. Typical Autumn time fishing is excellent and expect to see plenty of Bald eagles, big mountains and more salmon than you would ever dream of.
It looks like we'll have a great season with plenty of fish. 2009 is going to be one of those banner years, why not book with one of the best producing guides on the river. We also offer multiple day fully inclusive fishing holidays!
Chinook Salmon retention as of Sept 1: There is no slot size, 4 fish allowed but only one may be greater than 62cm. Did you know that the average size Chinook is 20-25 lbs!
We know the river very well and our experience means you can expect a great day on the river! This is a year round job for me, I'm in touch with the river and its fish. If you want a great fishing trip then please call us and we'll give you a memorable day with a very skilled guide!! Each time I am out on the river there are fish consistently being taken by myself and a few others that are in the 'know'.
