FRASER RIVER STURGEON FISHING REPORT – OCTOBER 5, 2018

Sturgeon fishing on the Fraser River remains consistent. They have been taking a variety of baits but salmon meat seems to be the most consistent producer. We have been catching some absolute brutes as well. Quite a few fish over 8′ with ridiculous girths. We just got one the other day that calculated out to 391 lbs. Seeing a fish of this magnitude come flying out of the water is a sight to behold. Sturgeon fishing should pick up anytime now as they begin to fatten up for winter. Salmon fishing has picked up considerably as well. Chum fishing has been really good, as has the coho fishing. We target the salmon with jigs and spoons and spinners. Now is the time of plenty, and it will continue into November.

FRASER RIVER STURGEON FISHING REPORT – SEPTEMBER 8, 2018

Sturgeon fishing has slowed a little, but remains consistent. last several days have been catching six to nine fish a day, and lots of nice size fish. Average size is just over 5 feet ,roughly 100lb and some fish over 200 pounds on a daily basis. We had some clients from Germany who are lucky enough to catch a 450 lb monster. This fish was 101 inches long with an astonishing 53 inch girth. This monster of the deep cleared the water three different times when hooked. If you’ve never seen a 450 lb fish jump clear out of the water when it’s on your line, then you need to come and go sturgeon fishing. It is truly a heart-stopping experience. The Fraser River also has a healthy run of Chinook salmon coming through right now. We’re also catching those every time we fish for them. These are large fish and you have an excellent chance of catching one over 30 lb. The average size of these Chinook is 12 to 18 pounds. They are aggressive biters and hard Fighters. Everything you could ask for in a salmon. If you’re looking to get yourself a trophy salmon sturgeon, now is the time. September through October is going to see some excellent fishing for both salmon and sturgeon.

FRASER RIVER STURGEON FISHING REPORT – AUGUST 24, 2018

Sturgeon fishing remains strong and we are still averaging 4-9 fish a day. The sizes have still been good with an average size of a hundred pounds or more , roughly 5 to 6 ft. With the water temperature the way it is, the sturgeon are fighting particularly hard. There’s lots of food around and they seem to be hungry. We had one gentleman and his wife all the way from Holland , who managed to get several fish in the seven foot range and one 8-footer , along with several five Footers all in 2 days. I would Hazard a guess that he went home with sore arms. We also had one fish that tore off almost 200 yards of line in one shot. I expect this fishing to continue on into September , and it will only get better right through October. If it’s big fish or after now’s the time. Come and get your sturgeon freak on!

FRASER RIVER STURGEON FISHING REPORT – AUGUST 10, 2018

The Fraser River has been filling up with sockeye for a while now. We can finally fish sockeye for the first time in 4 years. This has made anglers happy because they can now try and put some tasty salmon in the freezer. Sockeye is one of the most sought after salmon for table fair, but people aren’t the only ones that enjoy eating this tasty salmon. Sturgeon also look forward to dining on sockeye. Its a common misconception that sturgeon are strictly bottom dwellers and scavengers. This may be true to a certain degree, but Sturgeon are also highly efficient predators. They come up of the bottom and hunt, looking for sockeye to eat. Sturgeon actually hunt and catch pretty much everything that comes into, or lives in the river. From eulachons, crayfish, lamprey, salmon and even freshwater clams. Right now Sturgeon fishing remains outstanding, we are still averaging 6-9 fish a day hooked, with many more bites. Fresh sockeye is the bait of choice. there is no hesitation when the sturgeon smells the bait. Bites have been quite violent, with, on many occasions, the rod just folds over and line is screaming off the reel. In fact most clients have trouble getting the rod out of the holder because the fish is pulling so hard. A problem few people complain about. With the water being a touch on the warmer side the sturgeon are fighting extremely hard. I had one young lad from Ontario who made it his mission to fish Sturgeon on the Fraser River, his second fish of the day ended up being a 358 lb monster that cleared the water on its first of eight jumps. We were only rising for five minutes when he hooked his first fish, a feisty six footer that was lost on its second jump, then hooking the 8’ 4” monster after 15 minutes of recasting the lines. The average size of the Sturgeon has been five to six feet, with fish in the seven foot range daily. If one decides that this is something they have to experience, then now is the time. You will not be disappointed. Tight Lines Everyone! -Johnny

FRASER RIVER STURGEON FISHING REPORT – JULY 23, 2018

We have been hooking 6-8 fish a day, with very few fish under the five foot mark. We have been catching fish in the 7-8 foot range on a daily basis. Which has made for some very happy clients! The Sturgeon have been quite acrobatic lately, almost every fish we have hooked has been jumping clear of the water. If you’ve never seen a 300lb fish clear the water on the end of your line, it can be a heart stopping experience.

Fraser River Sturgeon Conservation

Fraser River Sturgeon Conservation

“They have outlived the dinosaurs and survived two ice ages, but the Fraser River White sturgeon has almost been wiped out by mankind in the last 100 years.” -Rick Hansen, Chair of the Fraser River Sturgeon Conservation Society Sturgeon have been dated as far back as 65 million years , to when the dinosaurs roamed the Earth. The Fraser River is lucky enough to have some of the largest known populations in North America.. However, sturgeon populations in the Fraser River are not what they used to be , but fortunately conservation efforts are helping the issue.
