What an excellentstart to April , the weather has been warm and dry and the sturgeon fishing hasbeen excellent. STS Guides and local anglers have been having some greatcatches, most of our trips have been catching double digits and some largersturgeon up to 8ft. Salmon fishing in the ocean out of Vancouver has been goodand local trout fishing is just getting started. Interior lakes are starting toopen up so overall we are looking at some great angling opportunities over thenext few months. See below for detailed report.
Fraser River Sturgeon Fishing has beenexcellent this past week, lots of fish in the 3 to 7 foot range with a fewlarger fish being caught. The Eulachon run ( small bait fish) looks to be a bitearly this spring, we are already seeing some fat fish and it looks like theseals and eagles have moved in to the Mission area to begin their springfeeding. It also looks like the sturgeon have done the same as action has beennothing short of amazing this past weekend. Best bait has been Eulachon andLamprey.
