Vancouver Canada fishing report for Salmon and huge Sturgeon
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 very good for Chums, and I love these fish!! They provide excellent sport, they fight very very hard and nonstop action for the day. Expect good Chum fishing until mid-late November. The beautiful Harrison river has Chums now, along with many other Fraser valley rivers. We don't floss our Chums, they bite our proven method, often 10 times more than most other methods. It's typical to hook into 10-40 per day each, call 604-864-5445 for bookings
Coho salmon are present in fairly decent numbers but do require more effort for less hookups typically.
Sturgeon fishing is Good right now with lots of average size fish(average is 50-100 lbs!)and others up to 500 lbs. Sturgeon fight like Marlin and Mako shark, very impressive!
The Fraser river was clogged with 20 million Pink salmon! and everybody had a great time catching these scrappy fish on our September charters! You'll have to wait until 2011 for the next Pink bonanza.
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.
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. All charters for Sept-Oct have yielded fish.
Our Fraser river guided Sturgeon fishing trips will go until late November. May can be good, June is very good, July is quite good for monster fish, August to November is HOT for #'s of fish and average size is 6-7 feet! We got great bait for these fish, 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'.
The Fraser river Sockeye Disaster of 09
It's no secret anymore that all along the south/mid coast certain wild salmon runs have been devastated as a direct result of current Fish farming practices(Fraser river 2009 Sockeye disaster). Our governments are criminally involved in deceiving the public just as they did on the east coast Cod fishery, and DFO is actively promoting this worldwide destructive industry. We the people have the power to stop it. These Atlantic salmon fish farms are completely non sustainable for the earth and DO NOT offer a better way to feed people, they take more fish from the ocean than they produce. If you want to save wild salmon please don't eat farmed salmon. It's deceptively labelled sometimes as 'BC salmon' but you can be assured that if you buy Sockeye, Pink, Chum then it's wild! and healthy. Farmed salmon have 2-3 times the fat along with PCB's, nerve toxins and antibiotics. Years of scientific research has concluded that in areas shared by fish farms and migrating juvenille wild salmon(Fraser river salmon and Sockeye too) there is a mortality rate that often exceed 80%!! Don't even think for a minute that 'global warming' is the problem because recent scientific data shows that water temperatures/conditions and food supplies in the Pacific Northwest are at ideal conditions for salmon and are predicted to be that way for the next decade or longer. The problem is the juvenilles are being decimated by sea lice infestations from fish farms plus the many diseases that are outbreaking from these death factories!!(this has been scientifically documented beyond any shadow of doubt) They dont make it past the farms to reach the food where they can grow and return to their rivers. Worldwide Scientists and accredited professionals are all posting the warnings that the Fish farm industry needs to change it's ways or most Southwest BC wild salmon stocks could be extinct in 10 years or less. There are still however a lot of very corrupt people in high places who are acting as if they are getting paid by the Fish farm industry and spewing all kinds of lies that goes against every properly researched scientific report out there and there are hundreds of these reports.

The best thing people can do is:
Don't buy farmed salmon, commonly found in Sushi and many restaurants. And remember that people change the world all the time, so we can easily win this.
