Fish’n is Hot
Vancouver Salmon Fishing.
Fishing around Vancouver remains good, we have been seeing quite a few Chinook and Coho along the west shoreline of Vancouver. The T-10 and Bell Bouy are still producing some nice Chinook and we are seeing some larger Coho as well. Our 26ft Grady White is ready to go so if you are looking for a day out on the salt, this would be a good time.
Fraser River Salmon
Salmon fishing on the Fraser has been nothing short of spectacular. Currently we have groups from Ireland, Scotland, Germany, Alberta and BC and they are all going home with limits of fish, sore arms and some great Memories.
For Pink salmon we are fishing with Pink Jigs, Gibbs Ultra Lures and Fly fishing with sparse pink maribou flys. All 3 are working well. Coho are now starting to show up in the Vedder so when we are targeting Pinks we are hooking up with some nice bright Coho. Yesterday we landed 4 Coho in the 4 to 6 lb range.
Here is a beautiful silver Coho heading for the Vedder River caught on the fly.
Fraser Sturgeon Fishing
Sturgeon fishing has been excellent this past week, lots of fish in the river taking advantage of the 16 million Pink Salmon. If you put in a full day for sturgeon you can expect 8 to 12 sturgeon ranging from 3 ft to 8 ft, still lots of fish over 7ft being caught. These fish are very fat and are putting up a great battle.
Look at the Girth on this fish, wow.
Best bait has been Pink salmon eggs but you can catch fish on belly stips, gills, and just about any other part of a salmon.
This fish measured 7 ft 8 inches and gave these guest from the UK a battle of a lifetime.
What to expect over the next week.
We are still seeing some fresh Pink Salmon move into the Fraser, we are catching a mix of fresh fish with sea-lice and some fish that have been in the river for a time. We are seeing some beautiful Coho Salmon and some Jack Springs so this should continue to improve as we get closer to October. No reports of Chum yet but we are only days away from seeing them begin to move into the Fraser.
Late run Chinook are already moving in, if anglers don’t mind putting in the time, this is a great fishery that will last well into mid October.
Hope you have a great week.se you on the water.
