Vancouver Fishing Report for July 24th, 2011

We apologize for a lack of reports on our blog lately, we have been extremely busy on the water over the past few weeks.

Vancouver Sturgeon Fishing on the Fraser River has been steady over the past couple weeks. We have been averaging 5-10 sturgeon on each one of our charters. The fish have been mainly ranging in the 3-5 foot mark, with usually 1 over 6 feet on every outing. Our biggest fish this month came yesterday right near the end of the day, taping out at 8’7”. Sturgeon fishing should be expected to remain steady over the next few weeks as the water gradually begins to drop. The Fraser River is now open for the retention of Chinook salmon but due to the high water conditions and poor water clarity, we are not offering Guided trips focused on catching Chinook on the Fraser River.

The Vancouver saltwater salmon fishery has been fairly slow over the past few weeks. Although there are a few Chinook and Coho around Vancouver harbour, our main focus has been around the Gulf Islands. The Gulf Islands is a 10 hour charter and we have been averaging 4-6 legal size Chinook per trip with most being in the 13-17 pound range. The crab fishing has been fairly slow due to the commercial fishery as well.

The Upper Pitt River bull trout fishery has slowed down somewhat from late June and early July, but we are still seeing decent results.  4-7 Bull Trout per trip has been the average lately while fly fishing, spoon fishing will usually generate a bit greater success. On Friday we spoon fished for the last couple hours and caught a few nice bulls and also caught an incidental Chinook salmon which was around 20 pounds.

Stay tuned for more reports as we are on the water everyday this week!

Vancouver Fishing

Vancouver Fishing has been steady over this past week. Our Vancouver Fishing charters departing out of downtown Vancouver have been seeing average success for this time of year. We made 2 trips to the Gulf Islands this past week and averaged 4-6 Chinook to the boat per trip, with the best fish weighing in at 27 pounds. Green/Glow Coyote spoons and Anchovy’s were our presentations of choice this week fished between 80-135 feet. Vancouver Fishing was a bit slow today in Vancouver harbour. We had a 5 hour charter so we focused on fishing the mouth of the Capilano. In total we boated 3 coho in the 3-6 pound range and lost a decent Chinook right beside the boat and missed 2 other chances.

Vancouver Fishing for bull trout on the Upper Pitt River has been steady the past week. We have been working harder for our fish than earlier in the month but results have still been good. We have landed 27 bull trout in 4 fly fishing trips this week, mainly averaging the 3 pound mark and the biggest reaching around 9 pounds.

Vancouver Fishing for Sturgeon has seen decent results lately. Water conditions are on the rise but the fish don’t seem to mind too much.  On Monday and on Tuesday we had 2 of our favorite guests return for some great Vancouver Fishing on the Fraser River….brothers Jon and Peter from Calgary, Alberta. While in town, these the boys were able to get 2 days on the water with us and managed to put 19 Sturgeon to the boat, the biggest measuring in at 7’4”. Congrats guys, we look forward to seeing you again in September!

Vancouver Fishing Report for June 12

The Vancouver saltwater Salmon fishery has been fair to good over this past week. Due to high winds it has been tough to make it over to the Gulf Islands where fishing has been fantastic with numbers ranging from 6-12 hookups per day and fish upto 25 pounds. Our main focus lately has been around the Howe sound area where we’ve been ranging 2-5 hookups on Chinook per day.  Our best presentations have been anchovy’s and green gator hootchies behind green hot spot flashers.

Our Vancouver fly fishing trips for Upper Pitt River Bull Trout fishery have officially begun! Yesterday we managed to fish the river for half of the day and it was nothing short of success. With 5 hours spent fishing the river, we managed to land 9 bull trout on the fly rods, the smallest being 2 pounds, and the largest around 6 pounds. Egg sucking leeches and Popsicle flies were our weapons of choice! This fishery usually results in great success until the middle of July.

On Saturday we did a 6 hour sturgeon charter on the Fraser River in the Chilliwack area. The River is extremely high but we were able to tuck out of the main flow in a few areas and managed to get our guests into 7 sturgeon, the biggest being just shy of 6 feet.

Vancouver Fishing Report May 27 2011

The Fraser River is still experiencing “freshet” water conditions and will be high for quite sometime. Despite the poor weather conditions over the last few days, our charters have been producing decent results. On Thursday, we had an 8 hour sturgeon charter on the Fraser River. Our targeted fishing grounds were between Coquitlam and Maple Ridge. With the high water conditions, we fished sheltered waters and managed to put 12 sturgeon to the boat. Most fish averaged 3-4 feet, with an hour left in the trip, we hooked the big one of the day! After 40 minutes of fighting, we managed to the land the beast that measured out at 7’1”. What a great way to end the day! Fraser River sturgeon fishing will continue to produce good success in the coming weeks.

Today, we departed out of downtown Vancouver Salmon Fishing Charter at 6am. We made the trek to the Gulf Islands, and it really paid off. We spent a total of 7.5 hours fishing and hooked into 13 fish. Although we had 13 hookups, we only put 5 chinook to the boat…still a great day. Out of the 5 chinook, the smallest weighed in at 8 pounds, the biggest was 22 pounds. On top of bringing in five Chinook to the dock, we also brought up 350 prawns at the end of the day. This is only the start of our prime time Vancouver fishing charters. With the start of the early Fraser River Salmon migration just beginning, it’s assured that fishing in Vancouver is going to be continue to get better throughout the summer. We will give you an update in the next few days!

Our First Vancouver Fishing Report

Welcome to our very first Vancouver Fishing Report!

Well the Fraser River is in full freshet as of late. Water levels have risen dramatically over the last week. Although the water conditions are not ideal, the fishing has still been pretty good. Tuesday afternoon we managed to put 9 Fraser River sturgeon to the boat on a 6 hour trip while fishing in between Mission and Chilliwack. Most of our fish were caught on Eulachons, but we did get a few on roe as well.

We made a trip on Sunday afternoon for some remote Vancouver fly fishing in search of some early sea-run bull trout. Although the water conditions were good, it’s still a little too early for us to start taking clients up. We put in a good effort, but only managed to pull off a couple small resident cutthroat trout. We expect the Sea-Run bull trout to show up in good numbers in the first week of June. Stay tuned!

The Vancouver saltwater salmon fishery has picked right up over the last week. We have been averaging 3-6 Chinook over the last week on our 8 hour charters. Most of our action has been around the south end of Bowen Island, and the QA marker. The Chinook have been averaging 10-15 pounds with a few fish over 20. Our gear of choice has been Anchovies, blood and bones hootchies, and green/glow coyote spoons trolled behind Green hot spot flashers.
