Fishing has been excellent again this week, good numbers ofsalmon being caught in Vancouver area and sturgeon fishing has been nothingshort of spectacular. The salmon fry are beginning to hatch and migrate downthe Fraser River so trout fishing will begin to turn on over the next fewweeks. Harrison Lake has been producing some nice Cutthroat as has HarrisonRiver. See below for more details.
Sturgeon fishing has been spectacular this past weekand should remain this way well into May. A bit of debris in the water butnothing too crazy. Eulachon and Lamprey Eel has been the best two baits but weare also getting a fair number on salmon eggs. If you have never triedsturgeon fishing on the Fraser, this is the time to get out and give it a try.Our average day has been in the double digits with a few days where our guidesare landed 20-25 fish in a full day charter.
Vancouver Salmon fishing has also been very good, the Hump,Howe Sound and Vancouver Harbour have all been producing some great catches. Now is the time of year to start we startrunning a bit more bait and hootchies in addition to spoons. We usually run 4rods and mix things up a bit to find the depth the fish are feeding and bitingat. Usually the fish will be between 75 to 150 feet, but there are yearswhere we get them as shallow as 40 feet and as deep as 180 feet. Good bets for spoons are the G Force No Bananas, Bon Chovy,Trailhead and Outfitter. Skinny G's will also work in the samepatterns. The GibbsDelta Guide Series Flashers will also be key inthe murky water with the UV and Glow really making a difference.

I was up in the Fraser Canyon this past weekend and waterwas up about 15 feet from previous week. This would indicate the beginning offreshet (when snow begins to melt). Our peak season for our Fraser CanyonAdventure and Hells Gate Tour is from July 21 to Oct 15, I still have a fewweekend dates and some Fridays. If you would like to join me in the canyon thissummer, book early.
The full day in the Fraser Canyon includes the 136km trip toHells Gate & back along with sturgeon fishing, shore lunch and some skeetshooting if time permits. Cost for the full day is $275 per person based on 6or more with a maximum of 12 people. Excellent adventure for families, largergroups and corporate team building.
Hope you have a great weekend. Give us a call if yourlooking for a last minute trip.
