FRASER RIVER STURGEON FISHING REPORT – AUGUST 10, 2018

By Johnny | 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

By Johnny | July 26, 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

“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.

Fishing Resolutions

Fishing Resolutions

Yes, it’s July and not the usual time to make resolutions but I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions. I believe that you can make changes any time of the year. Why wait for some date to get the ball rolling! I’ve been so busy the first months of the year that I’ve only gotten around to thinking about any changes or improvements I can make.  Anyone who knows me knows that I live and breathe fishing. So no one will be surprised that my resolutions are also related to fishing.

It’s a new year and almost time for prime time Sturgeon fishing! The Sturgeon are hungry after the Winter and are ready to feast! During this time double digit days are not uncommon.
