Fishing Report – Vancouver & Fraser Valley 13-10-12
Hold on to your hats people because the report is outstanding! The Fraser River Sturgeon fishing has been upgraded from a category 3 to a category 5 Sturgeon storm, and our guides are proving it! Dean was out with the Flin Flon boys and landed a 8ft 4” Giant.
Ben has reported an incredible 10 to 18 fish a day lately with a 7ft 7” tank and more than a few over 6ft!
We have already had one of the most memorable Sturgeon years to date, and there is no sign of letting up. What is working for bait you ask? Let me help you with that! Stink, roe, and salmon parts are providing the best results. If you’re looking to get out, let the Great River Team take you. We know this fishery inside and out and go the extra mile to prove it to you. Please remember always use appropriate gear and proper handling practices. All of us Great River Fishing Adventures are dedicated to the survival and rebuilding of the population of our White Sturgeon. Good luck!
Bar fishing on the Fraser River is still getting great numbers and with the bait ban now lifted it is only going to improve. Remember too that you can toss your bar rod from the back of an anchored boat and get just as good results. The fly fishing, and Spey casting on this river system for Chinook, Chum, and Coho Salmon is world renowned. Our fly fishing experts have been doing this for many years and have some methods and tools that make them innovators. All of our Great River Fishing guides are “in house” and on the river all year long. We do not “out source” and hire on extra guides, or part time guides for the busy season. These guys are the real deal! We book only who we can take. This separates us from the rest of the field in this industry and makes us a leader. Bookings can be scarce due to that, so phone us today to get a spot.
The Vedder River and Chilliwack River are about to undergo a big change. The rain is here! This can be a double edged sword however. If we get a ton of rain in a short period of time, this can make for some tough sledding. If we get a reasonable amount of rain spread out a bit, that will make for some outstanding fishing conditions! Springs, Coho, and Chum are and will continue to be blasting assorted wool, ( red, pink, purple) roe, brass, and copper spinners. So let’s hope for a decent amount of rain in a decent amount of time. Just a note, the banks will start to get soft and the water faster so please be careful out there.
The Harrison River could not be hotter right now! The Chum numbers are through the roof. These are one of the strongest hardest hitting fish out there, and are a mountain of fun to hook up. Check out this mammoth caught by our friend Debbie and her guide Benny! Unbelievable! If your method of madness is float fishing Purple, cerise, and pink jigs is going to get you the best results. If swinging a fly is more your style then purple marabou’s and anything pink is what you’re looking for. Coho are spread throughout, hitting spinners and a vast array of fly’s like muddlers and Coho killers. Harrison Sturgeon fishing is starting to pick up too, so be ready! Our team is ready to take you out and beat the river into froth with fish!
A heartfelt thank you to all those who came out to help in the Vedder River clean up. People from all over the world would give anything to be blessed with what we have, so let’s take care of it. As always, pack out what you pack in, and maybe a little extra.
