Salmon Fishing on the Fraser is Open

Salmon Fishing on the Fraser is Open

Salmon fishing has reopened after being shut down for a few months. Salmon fishing was shut down by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans over concerns of the low sockeye salmon numbers. The Pacific Salmon Commission recently revised its already low forecast for sockeye numbers from 2.3 million to 1.1 million in the Fraser River, which would be the lowest number since records have been kept.

2015 A Year in Review

Where does the time go? 2015 seemed to go by in the blink of an eye, and what an amazing year it was…especially for fishing. Sturgeon fishing was nothing short of incredible this year. We had many fantastic days on the water creating many memories and making many new friends along the way. The sturgeon seemed to fight harder this year creating some epic battles for our fishing clients. There were definitely some fishing stories created this year. I often tell my clients that sturgeon fishing is like a box of chocolates, you just never know what you’re going to get. Every time you set that hook into a sturgeon it could just as easily be 10 feet as it is two feet. A lot of people are under the impression that sturgeon are bottom feeders, scavengers if you will. Nothing, however, could be further from the truth. Sturgeon are highly efficient predators  when hunting their prey. Sturgeon feed on anything and everything that swims or lives in the river. This includes all species of salmon and a fish called the Pike minnow, which is one of the main sources of food for the sturgeon during the year. The sturgeon uses its sense of smell as well as chemical and electro receptors to hone in on its prey. Being such an efficient predator could be contributed to the sturgeons 135 million year existence on this earth. Truly an incredible fish. Catching a sturgeon is truly an experience you will remember and the Fraser River is one of the best places to find them. They are available to fish most of the year but prime season starts in March. Be sure to book your sturgeon fishing trip with Johnny.

Wow ! Where did October go? We have all been so busy on the river it seemed to go by in the blink of an eye. Fishing this month has been nothing short of amazing, and the fishing should continue to be good right through November. We have been averaging 10-20 sturgeon in the boat per day, and the Chum salmon are here in full force, with easy limits for everyone.  Coho were a bit late this season, but are coming in strong now with only hatchery fish allowed for retention.
