Sturgeon fishing for the month of May has been nothing short of epic. The Eulachon run has been strong, and the fish have been feasting. We’ve been landing 7 to 10 fish a day on our slower days, and up to 20 on our better days. Average size has been close to 100 lb up to 270 lb. That would be about 5 to 8 feet in length.
Best baits have been Eulachon and salmon eggs. Great fishing should continue on through May. Water levels have been fantastic, we had a small rise of the river which brought some debris but the river level has stabilized now, and even dropped a little , making for perfect water conditions.
This season is shaping up nicely, and it’s looking like it’s going to be a fantastic season.
