Fishing Report – Vancouver & Fraser Valley 26-11-12
Fraser River Sturgeon fishingis still doing well, but has slowed down from the fish mayhem in the last little while, but these monsters are still out there waiting to be hooked up. Roe is still your best bet to lure giant fish out of the depths. One of the best things about Sturgeon fishing is that you just never know when the next monster might be around the corner! Salmon fishing on the Fraser has slowed down a bit as well.
There are still Coho salmon and the odd Steelhead waiting for you! Bar fishing is still getting some results with spin’n Glo’s and roe. Swinging fly’s can still be an effective way of folding the rod! Our team of outstanding guides is ready to pull out all the stops to get you into fish, so give us a call today.
The Chilliwack and Vedder rivers are doing quite well for coho right now. There are still clean fish being caught in the upper river. Spinners, spoons, roe, orange, red , and green wool are working. There are a few steelhead starting to show now too. Colder weather and Christmas just around the corner means one thing…STEELHEAD SEASON BABY! If you have never had the chance to go steelhead fishing, it is a MUST!
The team at Great River is getting primed and ready for another big steelie season ahead. It is one of the ultimate sports fish, and congers up visions of cool, crisp winter mornings with breath taking scenery. All while hunting these incredible fish. They can require a lot more footwork and patience then salmon fishing, but trust me when I say they are well worth it. The instant adrenalin rush when you feel the pull and your reel starts screaming, with a beautiful chromer steaming for the fast water, is a feeling like no other! Steelhead season usually starts in December and goes till May. The Chilliwack and Vedder rivers are world renowned for Steelie fishing and we here at Great River have the dream team of guides! After all, it’s right in our back yard!
The Harrison River has slowed down for Chum salmon but there are still a few around, taking on purple and pink jigs and flies. Coho are being caught on spinners, and spoons. If fly fishing is your forte, then Coho killers and wooly buggers are a good start. Sturgeon fishing has been ok around the mouth, but not quite as many fish as the Fraser, It’s a nice time to get out on the Harrison there is less pressure on the river and still fish waiting for you to come get hooked up!
That’s it for the report. As always, pack out what you pack in, and maybe a little extra.
