The Fishing Report:

Salmon options on Fraser river is HOT: Fraser river Chinook(King salmon) fishing is currently very good and retention is allowed. You want to be booked sometime between now and Oct 10th. Numbers of fish in the Fraser right now are excellent!. salmon fishing guide guides fraser river chinook king Chinook fishing in the fall is very good as the big return shows up for all the local rivers like the Harrison and Chilliwack rivers. We recommend booking your Chinook salmon fishing trip for Sept 15 - October 10 for the best guided fishing. Fraser river Chinooks aka King salmon average 20-25 lbs and are one of the best eating salmon anywhere! Coho show up by early October as do Chums. Coho was very good the last 2 years from Oct 7 to Nov 7th. Chums will run right into late November and provide good fly action too.

Sturgeon Fishing the Fraser river level is very nice, the river has dropped a ton and all spots are fishable and producing. fraser river sturgeon fishing guide trips We have encountered some beasts this past week again, landing some nice fish up to 300 lbs. We are getting sturgeon on every 'sturgeon only' charter. Late August a 400 lb fish(8ft-8 inch) was landed by lucky anglers from Utah who came up here because getting a big Sturgeon was on their 'bucket list'! giant fraser river white sturgeon caught with Silversides Fishing guides Many Fish around 150-200 lbs have been taken too. If you are looking for a monster Sturgeon take note that from later July thru until November is peak season. Sturgeon fishing continues to be consistently good for us this season with lots of 5-7 footers! Monster sized Sturgeon are being taken too, a 12ft fish was caught late July and fish in the 9 -12+ range are available throughout the summer and fall months. Our success rate this summer is 100% when booking 'just Sturgeon'.
