Fraser River Sturgeon fishing has picked up over the past 2 weeks, which is quite standard for this time of year. Our best day this year has been 42 fish to the boat which was on February 26th, although none of them were over 4.5 feet in length, it was still a very fun day and they fought great. We have been finding some bigger fish in the last 2 weeks with several fish over 5 feet and a few over 6! Sturgeon fishing is going to continue to get better throughout April and May.
The eulachons (bait fish) will be entering the river to spawn within a week and this triggers the first major feeding frenzy for sturgeon on the Fraser River. The past 2 days have been some of the most enjoyable fishing of the year as we have gotten our first taste of sunny spring weather. Sunny skies, calm water, and great bc sturgeon fishing! We have caught over 10 sturgeon per boat, many in the 3-4 foot range, some over 5, and the fish in the picture is from a 7 footer we took to the beach yesterday. The good season has just begun!
This is just one of many Fraser River Sturgeon caught on this trip.
We still have some prime salmon and sturgeon fishing dates available so if you are interested please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 778-389-3474. The salmon and sturgeon fishing has been excellent this past week on the Fraser River and it’s tributaries. Despite the poor water clarity in the Fraser River itself, most of our salmon fishing efforts have been focused on the Harrison river and Chilliwack River. Jigs have been our lures of choice for spin fishing, and small pink flies for fly fishing. All clients who have been interested in keeping quotas have done so in the past week, as well as releasing many others.
Sturgeon fishing has been pretty good so far this month, some days are better than others but most 8 hour charters have been putting over 10 Sturgeon to the boat, with our biggest this month measuring out at 8’1”. Fresh pink salmon roe has been our bait of choice!
The Vancouver saltwater fishery has been very productive this past week around the mouth of the Capilano and West Vancouver shoreline. Every charter has been hooking 5-6 chinooks with some cohos and pinks mixed in as well.
