Fishing Report For Oct 12, 2011
October 12, 2011 Comments Off on Fishing Report For Oct 12, 2011
Fishing for salmon has been fair to good, we are working for every fish but well worth the effort. Some really nice Coho and Chinook being caught this week both wild and hatchery.
The Chum salmon are starting to show up in better numbers the past couple days but still way down from past runs. The Stave seems to have more chum than most other local rivers.
This hatchery Coho was caught on the Harrison Confluence a few days ago.
Vedder River is producing some excellent Coho fishing, the rain has dirty the water but if it stops tomorrow as expected, the weekend should be excellent fishing. We have been catching some nice Coho as the confluence casting spinner and plunking spoons.
This Wild coho was quickly release today after a great battle on light tackle.
Sturgeon fishing has been fair to good, most trips are split between salmon and sturgeon so 4 to 6 fish has been average. if you put the full day in for sturgeon you should be able to land 6 to 12 fish.
Over the next few weeks sturgeon fishing should improve which will take us into our November fishery.
This 8 ft 10 inch sturgeon was landed today by STS Guide Doug Elias and John Hunt from Hunt TV. Doug and John are filming a sturgeon episode fopr the 2011/12 season.
